Dress is finished ! Except for the polonaise-with-bows thing that I will mark and sew with the help of [personal profile] green_martha, it's all done.
I even retrim a little bit one of straw hat, with self fabric.

No pictures, because I want to keep the surprise of it. We're out on Saturday, so wait for Sunday morning for pics. I just miss my cane, but I definitely couldn't bring it in the train.

oh, wait, I have to put a self fabric rosette on my shoes !

 I'm cross-eyed of having pleat so much striped-trim. And ain't finished yet.

Ah ah ! I manage to make a lovely trimming on the bodice of my dress, which make me very happy since it's the first time I do self-trimming.
Wait... no. I did self-trimming on my française, but it was ages ago ;P

Need to put finish pleathing the skirts, sew them on, trim the skirts, hem them, sew them into a polonaise with bows, finish the sleeves elbow (hemming them and trimming them if I have enough fabric left), AND, at last, put hooks and eyes.

By the way, [livejournal.com profile] green_martha, do you have hook and bars (straight) instead of hook and eyes, (u shaped) because I just don't have enough, and eyes will be a pain in the ass to close the stomacher correctly.

I shall be putting my stays on, to check if the thing I'm working on fits, but it's 34 °C and I just don't feel like it.
Problem ? err... Grenoble, where I will have to wear the dress, is a hotter city.
Oh my...

[livejournal.com profile] green_martha : I show you what I'm doing, and you show me what your doing :)

It's a polonaise, dramatically inspired by this Coppola dress : http://www.costumersguide.com/MA/striped3a.jpg
I name it The Candy Coppola. Except that I also name it Berlingot. Except that I can't choose between the 2 names.

Also, will Lady Fi do another dress in one night for the event ?
Does she feel like making me a big pouf hair the morning of the event ?
Can I use her like she is my personal maid ? ;P

"But I only wanted to buy one piece of fabric !...", she said.

See 3 robe à l'anglaise in this three fabrics.

I only wanted to find a striped silk for one anglaise, but there was nothing, so cotton, cotton, cotton. I'm going for a very Louis XVI style here : stripes, stripes, stripes !
