It’s Finished …

I had some time this afternoon to crank out the gold silk petticoat to go with my new spencer. I’m pretty happy with the results. It’s not my favorite ensemble, but it will do. I think it’s a good representation of the transitional fashions of the late 1790’s. I decided to put “Lady D” on for the photos. I do think she is a little large for this ensemble. I’m thinking my smaller wig will work better. Anyway, here are the pictures….

Love Lauren

Jossilynn Parx said...

BTW...is the skirt pleated or gathered? need to make me one of those!

Lauren said...

Thanks Ladies...

Jossilynn,

The skirt is heavily pleated :-)

So gorgeous! I do think you should make a white petticoat to go with it too, just for variety.

I'm so envious of how fast you sew!

Great colours! You look very pretty!

Oh Lauren *GASP* It's gorgeous! I especially love that first photo of you with your hair down. You look beautiful beyond words. The colors go so well together and the lace is the perfect touch. You did a fantastic job and I too, am jealous of how fast you can sew (and hand sew, at that!)

Absolutely lovely! You do so well catch the style of this period - you look as if you were jumped out of the "gallery of fashion" :)

Ahh!! It's fabulous! It's so lovely to see someone do this transitional style... and do it so well. :>
