Dear Friends and Readers,
I am getting ready to start on my next project, after I finish Aaron's breeches and a large project for a client. Anyway, I want to know if my idea is Ball Worthy. I'm trying to use pieces in my stash and this is what I've come up...
I am planning on using the left over fabric from Aaron's frock coat and waistcoat. The main jacket done in a gold silk, the zone front in a striped green silk with a hint of gold, and the skirt will be done in a cream striped silk organza with cream satin stripes. I probably will not wear a panier, since I'm in the late 18th century. I'm also debatin on how I want it to close: buttons, hooks and eyes, or stomacher. Anyway, I wanted to hear your ideas and see if my little creation will be worthy to wear to a ball or be destined for picnicing :-) God Bless!
