Cathi, that is a real gem. Very nice work. Did you use a pattern?

Thank you Katharine.
I did not use a pattern (I think that the back of the hat is a little too wide for the period) but the buckram is a wonderful help for the form.
I was lucky enough to find a wide, stiff velvet ribbon which keeps its shape when the loops are made. So I can put them vertically or horizontally without them flattening. On the other hand, sewing all the thicknesses together was difficult (I don’t often use glue) and I broke and bent some large needles. :?

Wow - Magnifique! And without a pattern, it's really lovely.

En fait c'est du ''maquillage'': le tissu extérieur cache les imperfections de la forme et la doublure intérieure cache tout ce que l'on ne veut pas voir! :lol:

Elensari, (is that Kelly Cochran?)
Thank you for the compliment but it’s nothing compared to your work.
I love the dresses you make. I often look at Waisted Efforts & Flickr just to enjoy your creations. I like the 1906 Dinner Dress very much, Melanie's dress and the dress made with a sari (?) for the Blue dress. Your Old Ballgown would be perfect for me (not the size :lol: )…,..
Wonderfull!!!! They are all wonderfull: the red ball dress, the Elizabethan costumes….the black hat( Truly Victorian?)…

Well Geez, Cathi... *blush* Thanks! Thanks for taking the time to look at my stuff. I do enjoy it so. I would love to do more Edwardian things, but I am only slowly teaching myself to drape, and I am always so busy, it is hard to make time to play in new eras. Thanks so much for the compliments. Made my day. I will go much happier to plowing through this Elizabethan wedding stuff that I must finish. I have my own wedding to work on, too!

Happy sewing! :D

Hi Cathi

Sorry I did not get this reply, but yes that is about the outfits I made for Deeanne Gist. Her event started yesterday, and there are only a couple of pictures of her in her pieces, but they are cute so far. I unfortunately did not have the time to document her stuff as much as I would have liked so I am hoping for some helpful people to take a pile of lovely photos for me.

Hopefully I will have something up at WE soon.

Thanks!
