Pleated Posies of silk satin and organza await to be stitched to their skirt. Making progress! 🙂
We’re only a little more than month away until we once again board Air New Zealand and head off to England…we’ll be spending four days in London and then moving on to Bath for the 2019 Prior Attire Ball. 🙂
Naturally this will require a new ball gown and it’s currently under construction…I can’t reveal the details just yet but don’t worry, there will be preview coming very soon. 🙂 Last year was a lot of fun and so we’re going to do it again but this time we’ll be visiting some of the sights around Bath in more detail than what we did the last time…and of course, well be “taking the waters”…well, more like taking a small sip.
Stay tuned for more soon!
Some formal images taken in our Tombstone parlor, just before we left for the Courthouse. The bride is wearing a brocade gown in the mid 1870s style, with silk pleating and soft cotton netted ruffles with a corseted bodice in a ballgown style.
This gown has a detachable train, so she can wear it later for a Victorian Ball as a formal gown.
The bodice and skirt front had vintage lace applique and bobbinette (netted) ruffles all pinked with my antique tools and hand finished.
And the payoff… 🙂
We fell in love with Martin as well…now they’re the prettiest couple in the West. 🙂
