I have finally finished the trimming of my own dress for this season... I ended up making 2 different underskirts for it (plaid and yellow) so, huzzah, 2 gowns in 1!

I put up the third one because you can see the front of the dress a little better, the pictures are a little dark...

And here is the pillbox hat I finished over the weekend for my sister-in-law to go with the dress I posted hear earlier...

So this isn't technically a "new" finished project, but it's a "redone" finished project. I had this red/ivory outfit which I felt needed another color.



I racked my brain and came up with black.  I also felt the front of the bodice was a little bland, so I decided to bead a tudor rose.  I first beaded the black velvet and then attached the black velvet section to the bodice.  I also beaded the overskirt all over with black onyx and beaded the trim with black onyx between the white pearls.  I added black trim on the overskirt and underskirt.  THe outcome is exactly what I wanted, but I am going to add another fat black trim to the overskirt (nothing is ever complete!!)

This is my second bodice for the St Louis Green Lady.  These have been fun commissions.  She gives me rough idea of what she wants it to ultimately look like and then says "make me beautiful".  Last year it was very tree like with overlapping fabric leaves. This year she wanted to look like she just stood up from a forest floor with more muted colors and she wanted monks cloth in it.  I give it to her tomorrow, I hope she likes it.

It has scrapes of embroidered organza, fabric, leather, feathers, beads, buttons, yarn, raw wool roving, and thing else I could think of to sew on it.  This is "sucker" is hand wash only.

My Wedding



I didn't make the one on the very right, or the light and dark blue one on the right.



Some more pics of my wedding gown (not great ones, but the photographers pics are not back yet)






This is the concept drawing for my dress



I made my circlet and earings too.




I made all the girls cloaks, but hers I made for her wedding 2 years ago. I made the groomsmens outfits too.



Well probably too many pics so that's all for now.   ;D

Lovely wedding party - your dress is particularly unique.  You must have been a very busy woman sewing most of the wedding party's clothing and the normal planning! I am impressed. I am about ready to embark on a similar project for my daughter's wedding - however she is going with Regency as her time period

To quote a previous poster - "looken good!".
