My current project is a 1873 Floral Striped Victorian Polonaise using TV410 and TV201. The fabric is one that I picked up in Beijing, China and some of my girlfriends have the same fabric in different colorways!

This is my muslin for the bodice:

This is it currently:
I still have to finish the trim, do the sleeves, bone the bodice and bustle up the back (and make the underskirt… which will be the same fabric as the trim)

I love it! I'm definitely not the pink girly type, but I would totally wear that dress because it's just so pretty! (now I want to make a polonaise!) And I love your hat too!

I love the soft colors in your dress. So pretty, as are all the dresses in the pix. The gentlemen look quite dashing too!

Really good, and that hat REALLY completes the look! You would have been correctly attired to have attended a recitation by the man himself in London England!
