It is finished (and a sneak peak)!!

As soon as I finished sewing the last button onto the belt, I ran upstairs to try it on. My youngest brother called out to me "You look like you could be on Downton Abbey!" when my sister was taking these quick shots.


Yes, I love it! And it fits with no trial fittings beforehand! The belt is a wee bit snug, so I'll probably need to make another one if I'll be wearing it for a length of time.

More pictures and details to follow when I can do a real photoshoot of wearing a hat (still trying to decide how to decorate it ... any milliners out there?) gloves, heels, and all that fun stuff. :)

Hi Cheri,
Absolutely lovely!
I would like to ask you, after all that hard work, where would you wear this beautiful dress? You are truly talented!

Thankyou all so much for your kind words of praise!

Irene, currently I don't have an occasion, but I'm considering building a "persona" to use in some possible reenacting.

I'm glad I found this. I have the pattern but haven't decided how I want to make it up yet.
