It’s possible that I’ve reached the heights of mid 90s fashions, because both sleeves won’t fit in frame! She’s still pinned…tomorrow, bodice fitting. 🙂
These bayleuse ruffles and pleats are underneath the train, only glimpses of this will show when the train is held up for dancing…a pretty silk and lacy secret!
After I lose my fingerprints in the steamy process of pleating, the strips are carefully rolled so they can cool off and rest for 24 hours…hmmm, that would be good advice for me, too!
Flouncing about on a Friday…don’t mind me!
The late 1890s isn’t really a time period that embraces my love of pleating, but I found some ways to sneak some in!
