Scandalous…

Returning to the drawing room after the ball in something casual…you know, like a tea gown. Scandalous…😄



And More At The Atelier…

The portrait doesn’t show her hem, so I made something up…today is bodice construction day! Five days to finish everything so I’m not sewing on the plane.
Um, like I usually do. Yes, it’s off to London! 😄

And here’s a full version of the portrait- Louise Jopling by John Everett Millais which was painted in 1879:

Meanwhile At The Atelier…

Finishing skirts as Fiona is side-eye judging me.

 



At The Atelier

A ballgown isn’t finished until it’s been Corgi-kissed. Fiona does her best to help.

 



More Work In Progress

Sitting on the floor applying “frosting” is my bestest favorite thing. Hmmm needs more pink…and metal sequins. 😁
