1872 Lilac Dream now has a skirt.
It looks a bit long for 3 reasons. Trudy, my mannequin often shrinks. I intend to wear heels with this. Possibly, made the hem to long. Happens occasionally to me. I end up rolling the waist band the first time I wear it because I’m tripping and then I re-hem. When will I learn.
I have a few more of the bows (like on the back) and more of the lace appliques (like on the bodice collar) that may end up on the skirt but first I want to make the over skirt and see how it looks and where everything lays. No point in sewing it on only to have to move it because the over skirt covers it.
So far so good. I like the dress without the over skirt so I now have another option for wear, which I think was one of the points of the over skirt.
