Past Creations...

While I wait for a good moment to take some photos of the 1850s coat and waistcoat I made for my gent, I have been digging through my archives.
Here is an 1885 gown I made a couple years ago, from the most amazing fuchsia silk faille taffeta and antique lace. My favorite part is the green/fuchsia ribbon I used for the accents. It's becoming a favorite color combination ;-)

A bit goth with the brooch and yes, that is antique choir robe lace.
I'd like to redo the front of the bodice. I'm not happy with the velvet and the wrinkling that's happening there. I think I'm just ready for a different look:

Waiting in line for beverages at Dickens Fair year before last. Please excuse the flipped up edge of my bodice and the red eye, lol:
