The portrait doesn’t show her hem, so I made something up…today is bodice construction day! Five days to finish everything so I’m not sewing on the plane.
Um, like I usually do. Yes, it’s off to London! 😄
And here’s a full version of the portrait- Louise Jopling by John Everett Millais which was painted in 1879:
John Everett Millais, Portrait of Louise Jopling, 1879; National Portrait Gallery
And lady herself, Louise Jopling:
Finishing skirts as Fiona is side-eye judging me.
Two corsets in two days, now for the finishing work and flossing!
A little tired. 😎
A ballgown isn’t finished until it’s been Corgi-kissed. Fiona does her best to help.
Sitting on the floor applying “frosting” is my bestest favorite thing. Hmmm needs more pink…and metal sequins. 😁
