We have a trousseau...-ish
This is a close-up of the fabric I used in Deeane Gist's trousseau for the chemise and drawers. It really is white, but that is a hard color to photograph when the camera demands flash. This macro image shows thge embroidery and pintucks that really make this fabric special. I have posted an update to her page here. Check out that process, and the pieces involved.
In other costuming news I finished and sent off the last of the couched pieces to Dianna for beading. I have the lining for that over skirt coming, and will be finishing up the beading on the forepart. I want to get the skirt done first as it is the most difficult to fit, and will have hours of cartridge pleating to complete. I am really good at those now! *grin*
So in the last 2 weeks I am in Georgia, I need to complete a ball gown, and get all the beading done. Fun and excitement!.
