I finished the gown in time for the event! Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to do the stomacher, which I’d like to have nicely worked, functional buttonholes. I have started the process of learning how to make death’s head buttons for the eventual stomacher. I also need to decide how i’d Like to finish off the trim!
Now that the Museum of the American Revolution project is done, I am moving on to a blue silk gown a la John Singleton Copley! Can I get it done in two weeks in time for the an event at the Redwood Library in Newport, RI?
