Mom bought me six yards of this silver taffeta last night! It's absolutely gorgeous. It'll be a 18th c. inspired ball gown, with pewter and white/silvery beads on the stomacher and sleeves. I'll have a black tulle mask and also have tulle and a black rose is my hair.
Thank you, Mum!!!! :)
This is some olive green cotton broadcloth-type fabric. I'm making a medieval gown (that I've dubbed the "Autumn" dress), and embroidering the sleeves, neckline and possibly the hem with the thread colors shown.
These are the materials for Arwens Mourning dress (check out my previous post).
A close up on the buttons. I took these pics myself.... I didn't want to bother Amelia..... however, my close ups are really bad! She's so much better at this than I am!

  1. How cool! I can't wait to see your progress!

  2. All the fabric looks lovely! I'm very excited to see how the 18th century gown turns out, and I adore the colors of the medieval dress. ^.^

  3. How fun! I love the sound of 'silver taffeta'!


Hi! I love to hear from you! Just keep your language respectful (to God and others). :) Thank you!
