Long long ago and far far away .... oh wait, wrong fairy tale.Anyway, back on the old boards, we had a thread for a group of us who were working with this pattern. I think the rest of you all got finished. I never did but am back on the project now, thanks to the Ranger who kept Prussia occupied and out of the middle of the pattern pieces. I need some advice please.Here are a couple of key points before I ask questions:I am NOT going for historical accuracyI am using recycled material - cotton velvet upholstery grade, not stiff, almost no nap, limited quantityI have cut the front and back piecesI've had to narrow the godet and cut as four pieces rather than on the foldNow for the questions:What is the purpose of the front and back extensions? If it's just to add length to the hem, I did that by cutting the front and back longer. Do I still need the extensions?
YAY!!! I hoped it would work that way. Thanks, Kate, for the confirmation and the chuckle.OK, the next phase of this project won't happen until sometime Friday when the seamstress who's making the underdress (strange fabric choice, my machine just won't handle it) brings it over for a fitting. We'll make the corresponding "adjustments" to the overdress and then I can begin sewing.See, nothing is ever done just the way the pattern is designed with me. I have to tweak it to make it my own. Thus the NOT historically accurate disclaimer.
Just an FYI, people have been born since this thread was created and are now old enough to at least read most of it. Please be careful when resurrecting old threads like this.
Gem, were you one of the people who was working on this pattern? Maybe you can weigh in as well, since Kate seems to be AWOL.

And I'm surprised that this thread is entirely new to me! (Not so very surprised; I was AWOL from pretty much everything in Sept of 2008 due to family/work commitments.) But like the others said, it's like a whole new thread! LOL
