I will use the fabric that I posted about here: http://lachatelainechocolat.blogspot.com/2010/10/victorian-for-dickens-faire.html. The image that I will follow somewhat is:
I will probably make something similar to the left dress but use the sleeves from pattern 4400 above. I am excited about the outcome. With that said, I am constructing the skirt first. So, I am going to put it together tonight and get it ready to be cartridge pleated. Oh goody! Hand sewing!
Will keep you updated on this project.
