After seeing the beautiful gowns on Lady Bella's site, I am trying something new
- I have made a corset patter using the generator and will be sewing a mock up from a light cotton so that if it comes out well, I can use it.
I have modified the bodice pattern that has been my fall-back and did two different styles, as well. The modifications are not major but I think they will give me a more accurate look. Although I don't have the best fabric, I am hoping that my attempt will be at least passable. I have two gowns that are rather plain and one other one that is about half finished (my first try at a side-laced bodice)that will have two-piece sleeves, another new thing for me.
Thank you for posting such beautiful pictures of your work and the diaries that have so much great information!
