I did a pretty extensive (well, for me! I rarely do things like this) write-up about the progress on my white silk 18th c gown at my livejournal.
I realize I didn't mention this gown here! Yikes! I'm doing a white silk gown trimmed with white silk gauze for my upcoming visit to CW. Hopefully I will get a black silk gauze mantle done as well... We'll see!
