Re: TVE 02 Edwardian corset cover

Thank you, and it really helped to save time to be able to use pre-gathered eyelet.

Re: There's never a stupid question...

Oh dear, then I'd better get that tummy flattened. :)
I thought maybe that was the problem when I couldn't get it tight on the bust area. I'll come by on Sunday at the Marketplace when I'm wearing it and hopefully it will be on me correctly by then.

There's never a stupid question...

But I feel like this one is. I'm looking at my little bust pillows from my Edwardian corset and wondering how they sit inside the corset? Do they sit up with the seams top and bottom, or lay sideways with the seams front and back? The reason I ask is because the one time I tried mine on with them si...

Re: TVE 02 Edwardian corset cover

Here is my finished corset cover. It doesn't have my corset under it so I had to fluff up the top.

Thank you, Mary! I'll make a note of it and if/when I get there, I hope I will have more than an hour and can get as many lovely photos as you did, so I too can share.

Re: Fountainhead Dresses

Oh my! How lucky you were to be able to get these photos in that short period of time. I would have been screaming to JUST LEAVE ME BEHIND!! Thank you so much for the closeup details of some of them. I think the chances of this still being on display next year when we cruise to Alaska are rather sli...

I love what you did with the Wash Overskirt. Good job improvising with it. I might try that sometime.

Finished my 1905 Plain blouse & Circular skirt

I can't tell you how happy I am with this pattern, the ease to make it, and the final look I got. If I didn't have a few other things to finish, I'd be starting on my next one. :D I'll be wearing this to Costume College in August at the Sunday Fantasy Tea, and will be planning my next version afterw...

TVE 02 Edwardian corset cover

I'm just cutting out my fabric for this and wondered if I could use 3" wide pre-gathered eyelet for across the front, instead of making it?

Re: Photos wanted

What am I thinking? I just finished the 1873 polonaise and skirt but added an apron in the front to change it up.

I'm half done with the TV Edwardian circular skirt and waist. I'll post a photo when I'm done with them.

Thank you Cindy.
Thank you Dani. It was hard to find a trim color that would go with the green stripe. It was kind of a celery green, and I couldn't find any green ribbons that looked good with it, so I chose yellow in it's color "zone".
I hope you get a chance to make yours.

My two gowns from TV 410

I actually have a third one cut out but it won't be done for awhile. I made the first one to wear to the Banning House Picnic I attended last month with the Los Angeles costume guild, CGW. It was made from a green striped cotton, with white eyelet trim and a yellow ribbon running thru the beading. I...

Thank you Loretta. Many of those gowns I've sold since I lost a lot of weight but it gave me a chance to try a bunch of new patterns.
Our costume guild does just about any era, so it enables us to find many places we can go, sometimes just to a tearoom, or a period movie.

My 1830s Romantic gown using TV 455

I apologize if I already posted these. I really can't remember if I did. I made this cotton purple floral gown to wear to the Riverside (CA) Dickens Faire last Feb, and wore it in the fashion show at the auditorium. I love this pattern so much, I've already bought fabric to make another! http://www....
