Well, yet again, my perfectly laid plans have taken a left at Albequerque! And that's just ok. I have put away my Ruth DeWitt Bukater boarding suit as I discovered the other day that I only have 3 months before Costume College. That's not 3 months of straight sewing time...oh no. Two months of summer falls in between now and the first weekend of August. So, after a
moment, couple of hours of sheer panic, I called my friend Josie and she talked me off the ledge of costume craze. Thank you my friend! We now have our Coco wardrobe decided upon and I am feeling very happy.
Enter my first outfit to work on. Lizzy's wedding dress. From every image I have seen of this outfit it looks as though it is a one piece outfit, but I plan on making mine two pieces. A dress and a pelisse.
|This image is off of Pinterest...alas, I cannot find a reference for it....I even did the reverse look up thing on Google...no dice. I need to find fabric for the coat, lace, and fun buttons like the original.|
|My awesome fabric is a brand new, King sized, Egyptian Cotton flat sheet that I found at a local thrift store! It is perfect and oh so soft!! I love it!! It has a super lovely weave so the stripes stand out.|
|I'm using the faux drop front view from La Mode Bagatelle pattern. The original image looked as though it had pleats on the front panel so I did that with mine!|
|I had some issues with the back/side seam as my body shape isn't conducive to this style I guess, so I did bone it so it layed flat.|
I am hoping tomorrow to insert the sleeves and start on the skirt section!!
Yeah for Regency and Elizabeth Bennet!!!
Blessings my friends!
