And it’s full speed ahead as we work on documenting and patterning an original Felix ballgown from the mid-1890s.
Angus offers his input…
Working with our new camera and so far, the results have been exquisite. 🙂
Setting up is half the fun and most of the work! Now to pad the mannequin for an extant gown that I am patterning… 🙂
Someone is peeking out in a detail from the hem of our Maison Felix ballgown! This gown has only one beaded eye, the opposite side has just a flower in the same scale. It’s a curious touch that I had to lay on the floor to take this shot.
Maison Felix is in the house! Capturing details from this special 1898 duchess silk lady with Persian motif beading before I lift a pattern from her. How many waltzes, champagne, and stolen kisses has she seen? Our goal is to reproduce this gown from the lining to the fashion fabric!
