This has been quick!

6 Mar

It seems like most of these gowns have been forever in the “almost finished” stage, but this one is moving along very quickly.  Since there were no elaborate changes made and the dress is basically very simple, this has the potential to be the fastest one yet.  Not that it is a race or anything…

Here is the dress over the crinolines:

A very thin bit of the contrasting colour just to give the impression of what it might look like once the modified cowl collar is on. There will be contrast at the waist – not sure how much just yet, and at the bottom of the sleeve.  And I am still hanging on to the idea of some at the hem, as well.  Anyone with opinions on these, please feel free to post!

An odd angle making Miss Mitzie look even more strangely shaped than she actually is, but showing the silk for the floats.  There is a possibility of some dual coloured floats happening because I have a scant yard or so of a really cool silk.  That will have to wait until closer to the finish.

I ordered some powernet from Spandex House for the inner dress.  It arrived today – super fast as they only shipped Saturday!  But I ordered regular powernet and “wicking” powernet and of course there is no marking on the fabric to say which is which.  I think I can figure it out from the colours on the website or I could actually call them.  It would be interesting to try to figure it out just from wearing the garment.  Anyway, it is in the wash and could be made up into the inner dress as soon as the end of the week!

In spite of the big crinolines, this will need some crin around the bottom edge to fluff it up a bit more.  Don’t know if that can be obtained locally or not.  That could slow the process down a bit, for sure.
