But I've been very busy since then with lots of sewing. I need to finish a commission for a museum by the end of September and then I can go full steam into my wardrobe for Gettysburg Remembrance Day in November. I plan to wear my black and white checked silk gown during the day but with a new black wool paletot trimmed in black fur. And I talked myself into a new ball gown for the Friday night ball!
Yes, it's a black ball gown. :) I'm making it out of silk/cotton satin and it will be trimmed with antique black lace and lots of ridiculous bows. It makes my little black heart happy! Here's my Pinterest board on black evening gowns:https://www.pinterest.com/reinedecoudre/b
I also need to finish adding tucks to my petticoat, and I desperately need new drawers and a chemise as well. And also a new corset! So lots to do before November 18!
In the Louisa May Alcott book "An Old Fashioned Girl", when our heroine Polly is grown up, she has 1 black silk dress that she wears to parties. After one too many high society ladies making comments about the little blackbird and "that inevitable black dress" she starts avoiding her friend's fancy parties. :P
I look forward to seeing your black ball gown!
Love black! I can't wait to see the beautiful finished gown. Question: where are you sourcing your corset pattern from? I've been browsing...
