Pleated Posies of silk satin and organza await to be stitched to their skirt. Making progress! 🙂
Today’s view, a pretty pleated Brussels net lace edged bayleuse to support a gown’s train…this is what will show when the train is held for dancing!
Nine days from cut to finish this blush silk satin gown…will I be sewing on the plane? Ha! You know I will. 🙂
Sitting on the floor in the “Ooh-La-La” sewing parlor patiently hand stitching each of these stripey silk pleats. Where’s Spring? This old house is Brrrrrr cold!
My boots may have a tarnished past, but they’re ready for a new life playing matchy-matchy with the new gown! I’m leaving for No. 11, so this gown will be finished in the new “Ooh La La” parlor. 🙂
