My ball gown for next weekend is almost done! It just needs its cotton net tucker, which I am applying now. I also have to whip up a headdress, which will just be roses, black lace, and a tortoise shell comb.
The gown is red-green changeable silk taffeta. The sleeves are cotton organdy and the false chemise is cotton voile. Criss-crossing the bodice is black velvet ribbon.
I promise that after next weekend I will have gratuitous images of the gown with coiffed hair and picturesque background!
