The Tissot "Too Early" dress is finally done!

Postby beta pleated sheet » Mon Jun 28, 2010 9:30 pm

So, the pink dress in James Tissot's painting "Too Early" has been my dream dress for a long time. I decided last August that it was probably (finally) within my skill level, spend months researching, and finally started at the beginning of this month, and I finished about a week ago (had a break from work and treated this like my full time job). All I need now is a long black ribbon to tie around my neck, and I'm pretty sure I've got something suitable somewhere.

And, the patterns I used were the grand parlor skirt, the tie back overskirt, and the 1870s ballgown bodice with slight modification because I wanted it cut straight across in the front.
