T this gown *is* my future! I’ve lifted a pattern, sourced the silk, now to make one inspired by C.F. Himself, hoping to find some secrets in this gown in our museum collection. Um, in my spare time. 🙂
Luscious blush and salmon vintage silk flosses from Elizabeth Emerson Designs, the packaging is beautiful and the threads are lovely to work with!
One of the basic building blocks of any period style is “Structure”…which is what each of these images represent. Our gowns are made to be worn with a proper understructure, and I take it upon myself to make sure that those structures are beautiful. Oh, and by the way, I prefer wearing my corset to modern lingerie any day!
