MR is teaching a class on 18th century gown draping in Fredericksburg in February. Being taught to make my favorite style of dress, close to home, by a lady I admire, for a reasonable price... Come ON! I couldn’t pass that up. elegant_musings told me about the class a month or so ago and I have been saving my pennies ever since. I'll have to start saving my pennies for the required fabric now I suppose. :P
I haven’t decided if I want to make an "en fourreau" or sack-back gown at the class. The sack is tempting as they are so prevalent in the century and making one with instruction sounds like a good idea. Of course the other takes less fabric and is the style I prefer. Luckily I don’t have to decide quite yet so I can continue to ponder and scheme.
February seems like a long time to wait… I’m really looking forward to this! :>
