toiles and such

I worked on QofN on Wednesday... just now posting. So sad. It's been that kind of week. Anyway, I whipped up a bodice toile based on my b&w stripe jacket (since it fits so beautifully). I tried that on as well as the pannier and petticoat. It's looking pretty good. Haven't figured out exactly what I want to do with the bodice back... but the rest is just tweaks. I'm not even going to bother with a sleeve toile since I was super happy with the jacket.

This outfit has been so easy I'm starting to get nervous! I must be doing something wrong! My plan of a simply constructed frock that I bling out the wahzoo can't possibly be working after all! That is too clever. :>

I haven't commented on this project yet, but I'm looking at these pictures with grabby hands saying "WANT!"

I love the concept, love the inspiration, love the youtube link you posted (Diana Damrau is SO FABULOUS in this role). Everything about it is dripping with fabulous!

Looks lovely! Of course, with the striped jacket as a toile its going to be perfect!

I hate how you look so cute, and it isn't even anything yet! Curses on you talented wench!

Well it does look better in pics. I'm using that fabric we made 12th night shelf drapes out of - not exactly amazing fabric. :>

Wow, this is such a cool project! I'm a fellow 18thC costumer, so I just had to friend you to keep up with this project, I hope you don't mind!
