Going to a Belle Epoque Ball in Paris
This week I'm sewing a gown from 1910 to wear to a Belle Epoque ball in Paris. Its a bit of a rush job, as I have a few other items to finish before I leave. I don't have much room in my suitcase so chose to make a late period gown using some silk in my stash and a beaded sari left over from making a regency court train.
Some online patterns you might like to use if making this for yourself:
I spent some time tracing out pattern pieces and trying to make my kimono sleeve work.
