I started on my 1910’s dress yesterday. I finished the pattern draping and I started roll-hemming the chiffon. Here’s the plan, thus far…
The gown is going to be a bit of a hybrid between the first gown, from the Kyoto Costume Institute, and the Lady Maude gown, from Janet Arnold.
I’m using Sense and Sensibilty’s 1910’s Tea Gown as a base for the pattern and then building it from there.
Here’s the fabric. Gold silk taffeta for the main body, black chiffon for the overlays, and black silk taffeta for the sash.
I have 5 days from today to complete it. I think I can do it, we shall see :D
