Bodiced Gown

54 posts in this topic

Rhumba Rue--

i am sure the tailors and seamstresses had patterns --- and enlarged or decreased for fit of each indivisual...

then again, maybe not!---maybe it was like cooking-- you did it so many times repeatdely that the recipe/ pattern was in your head!

So I have started a blog on my experiences on my second run through making a bodiced gown. So far I have only put the first part up, I expect it will be weeks before I complete writing this, so please be patient with the pace I am taking with this.

Hope this helps someone.

So, yeah, JC is the MAN ON THE BALL finding every image of this dress I've found and several more.

Bought the silk for this....Four months ago? Still haven't cut a darned thing out.

Kate and Mickey: You'll remember me from Searle's...Miss Red I-Don't-Fit-This-Corset? Yeah, built the corset to go under this dress. THEN found out the dress has the corset built-in.

Spitfire: Those pink stays are the V&A Museum stays that Kass built her pattern off of. PS: Not built for the short-waisted. Forgot that part.

The pattern says to make two rectangles for sleeves, no contouring, they just tie on.

I'm on this project with you Michael! Well, as soon as I get those stays shortened...
