18th Century Court Gown 2


Progress photos:

Pinned on mannequin, testing out trims.

Small trim sample, checking it fits.

After working out the proportions from the inspiration gown, I've re-pinned the trim onto the skirt fronts.

Finally sewing trim onto the dress itself is not for the faint-hearted. I'm not brave enough to share with you how much unpicking I've had to do before getting it this far! I now have a page of good hints to share in my trim workshop/demonstration next year.

*Wipes up drool* This is going to be so stunning, I'm so excited to see it in all its finished frilly poofy gorgeousness. Keep posting a million detail pictures, I NEVER get tired of these kinds of posts!
