  1. Lovely! The great thing is--you can trim more elaborately later, and then have a second debut!

    And...as a reenactor...I loathe how beautifully dressed people will whip out a camera during public hours and start snapping. It's not the sort of thing one can really *say* anything about, but I can kvetch to you, right?

  2. Very pretty! I love the soft green color of the silk. I haven't done re-enactment in a long time, but I agree in a public, place where we are trying to get folks to let go of the future and get an infusion of the past it is very disengaging when costumed folk whip out cameras. Yet, there have been events that I have gone to and my friends or family will go, 'so where are the pictures?' Oops. Anyway, very lovely gown!

  3. Really beautiful for a one week project! I love the tucker, something I've not tried and would like to see closer or how it's done.

  5. Ooo crikey it's lovely. If I sewed something that quickly it would look like a hessian sack!
