I am playing catch up now that I have a functioning computer with a big monitor.
I posted something on Storyville back in May but I neglected to post pictures of my finished project. I was able to reproduce an envelope chemise out of some cotton that I cut off a maxi length sundress and the border to a christening gown (For a tiny garment you would have never expected two yards of trim). The difficulty was finding ivory ribbon to trim the garment with during bridal season.
The dressing gown was a Saver’s find. I lowered and replaced the original ties with ribbon to give it a drop waist appearance. The headpiece was made out of the last of the trim and fake flowers from Saver’s. The handbag was pieced from scraps.
