TV326 Hermione Overskirt

Postby Madamekat » Wed Aug 12, 2009 2:27 pm

It needs a waist closure and a back hem, but it's done. Unless I decide to add lace trim to the pannier hem. Should I?

The underskirt used here is the TV 221 Tie Back Underskirt.

That is lovely! what is that beautiful striped fabric?

I don't know about lace, maybe more knife edge pleated trim onstead?

Beautiful mix of fabrics and patterns/solids!! Makes me want to use the Hermione that much more for my wedding dress...

Lovely! I too opt for more pleats or ruffles ;)

Hello Madamekat,
As I’m interested in the TV326 1880 Hermione Overskirt I was disappointed not to be able to admire it (your work is always superb) as the photos have disappeared. What a pity. Is there some way of making them available again?
