I am setting out to make this dress:
It will be a work in progress. I have the kirtle completed. I have most of the saia put together. I have all the trim ordered. I have a friend willing to do all the beading (I am not so much on the beading process).I already have a hoop and a beaded cap.
The shift is from a different project. It has ruffles and blackworked cuffs. Tonight I will be working on the sleeves and completing the kirtle (heming) and the base saia.
After this weekend, I will be puffing out the sleeves and adding all the trim/beading bits. Then I will need to work on the beaded flat cap. The goal is to get it completed by Yule.
Here are some pictures of the gown in progress. They are a little grainy. I will try to get some better ones soon.
