Ball Gown Update

My ball gown plans have changed slightly since I first shared my vision with you in this post. I will eventually finish the whole idea, but not this year. The silk has to be put on hold, due to doggy's surgery. Anywhoo, I am going to be making the underdress. I'm not sure exactly what form I want it to take. I'm thinking something along the lines of a Chemise a la Reine, with a Regency twist. Here are some pictures of what I am envisioning. God Bless dear friends.

Love Lauren
I'm thinking ruffles about this (above) sized.

This painting (above) shows the overall shape I'm going for.
I'm thinking something similar to the belt for embellishment. We'll see :-)

P.S. Moose dog goes in on Friday for his surgery. I'm very nervous about it, but relieved at the same time. Please pray for his recovery. Thanks everyone and I will keep you updated.

I will be praying for dear Max. I love the paintings you are drawing your inspiration from. I want so much to make a chemise a la reine and I especially love the overall look of the gown in the second painting. What a vision of romance, elegance and femininity! Oh, people KNEW how to dress back then, didnt' they?
