1860's Underwear and Ball Gown

Postby elensari » Sun Jun 06, 2010 2:52 pm

Hi there! I have been hugely busy, and I thought I would share the latest finished project.

Here are pics http://www.flickr.com/photos/elensari/sets/72157624093831462/

And the soon to be updated dress journal is here. [url] http://waistedefforts.squarespace.com/v ... n-romance/

Now back to sewing!

It is very bad to be jealous… but I am.
What beautiful work! I like the undergarments, the bodice is so well finished (binding & back lacing) and the hair….
Where did you find such a nice wig?

Wow, thanks Tiffers and Cathi! I am pleased with how all the pieces came together; it was a lot of work. I love how piped seams and edges look, but I rarely take the time. LadyFleur provided the wig, and its additional pieces. It is lovely. The texture was wonderful, and it took to being styled easily.

Now to do the day dress. :D

I've raved about your skill and vision before, Kelly, but I just thought I should tell you that if you had fan club, I'd probably be its president. I truly admire your work and craftsmanship, and every time I see your garments they inspire me. Thanks again for unknowingly pushing me to learn and never be satisfied with "good enough."
