progress has been made!
Found the sleeve pattern. It was in the folder for the cross-over dress. Yeah, right where it belonged *rolls eyes* Never found the skirt pattern for the simple reason I never made one. Found my notes though and apparently I used two widths of fabric (60" wide) for the top and the skirt lining pieces from the S&S Regency dress for the lining. Easy once I figured it out.

So I've retraced a master pattern. I made enough changes that the extra step was worthwhile - bringing the backup, making the bodice a bit smaller - yay, the sleeve straps a little wider, etc. I also adapted the longer sleeve from my cross-over dress instead of the shorter oringinal incarnation. I just felt like it.

Now all the fashion fabric is cut out and I'm waiting for the lining fabric to finish tumbling around in the dryer. What is more boring than watching paint dry? Waiting for the washer and dryer to finish their cycles so you can cut out a new frock. It will finish about the time I have to leave for church. Of course.

Ha! Isn't that always the way? What we're looking for is usually right under our nose!
Sounds great so far! All those fiddly bits always make just that little difference- of course, I LOVE those gowns- especially the crossover.
