Success!

I don't have too many pics for right now, since I didn't have a chance to put everything on tonight, but I'm done! The 17th c gown is finished (minus the hem, which will come just before I wear it this summer), the petticoat is done, and I even finished off another pair of crocheted mitts today.




Finished Gown Pics

I promised pics of the finished gown, so here they are. The only change (as far as I know) to be made is the brooch - I'll be buying one from ebay within the next couple days.

It's shown here worn over the chemise, stays, bum roll, and both the petticoats I've made recently. It feels so weird to put this dress and the stays, which have been so long in the planning stages and making, into the closet.
