6 eras September: 1940s
The lovely sunny spring day we're having today must have influenced me, as I've picked a flowery 1940s number. Should be easily accomplished, now that I'm back at work and really only have the weekends.
I do, however have an epic outfit in mind. Very similar in style to the blue wedding dress I made last year, but there'll be more adornments and also a day and evening wear option. I made cute little miniatures to help visualise my concept:
I'll be using a combination of Burda 7880:
And Truly Victorian patterns TV361 and TV170, which Rebecca graciously let me keep after finishing her dress.
So, the idea is that they'll come out looking somthing like this:
Hous of Worth, 1880s
Mme, D Michaux, 1880s
I imagine this will take months and months, and I'll probably make a practise bodice or two, so this is definitely a long term project. Wish me luck!
