I finally got the skirt attached to the bodice and all hemmed nicely in place! I LOVE THIS DRESS!!!! It is so pretty and sweet looking! I am having trouble locating just the right buttons for the front and tab of the pelisse, so that is causing me to stress a bit. But I know that they will appear at just the right time!
|It has a 4.5" hem which is about what I have seen on extant dresses.|
I was in a panic to find just the right fabric for the pelisse as the original looked like a jaquard and as I live where I live and am limited by the stores I have here, things were looking grim. The dress fabric is a very interesting color...not white and not ivory, so matching online would have been a nightmare. I was in JoAnn's and found this fabulous fabric in the red tag section! Laaaaaa!!! Clearance how I love you! I had to get some from two different stores as not one store had enough...that's ok, I have it now and it matches the dress fabric perfectly!!!
|Pretty jaquard fabric for Pelisse!|
|OH!!! I soooo cannot wait for this outfit to be complete so I can try it on!!!|
I have a few projects for clients that I am wanting to get done and sent off so I can concentrate on my Costume College outfits, so I will be putting this away for a couple of days...Sigh...how I want to work on this! But, soon I will be back!!
Be Blessed my Friends!
