Ditching the Francaise

I have had silk taffeta set aside for a very specific francaise for some time now, but I just can't get over the fact that I don't wan't to make it. I don't like the style of the Francaise, I don't like making them.  I'm just not feeling it.  So I said to hell with it and I'm going to make this instead:



I just LOVE it.  It's so luxe with the weird proto bustle and the super long skirts, the narrow banding along the edges.  It's impractical and gorgeous.  I wants it.  I have many yards of a fantastic deep purple silk taffeta, so this with be more of a plumb color, but Samantha was able to come through with a few yards of yellow taffeta so I can at least keep within the color scheme.  It SHOULD be easy, because I already have a good 18th century bodice pattern and there isn't any crazy trim or anything.  Let's see if I can pull this off in the next few weeks!

See y'all at the francaise dinner!

Aaah, I'm so jealous! I love 18th c crazy color mixing! You're gonna look awesome...what color jewelry?

I wanted to do something colorful too but nothing clicked. So I'm going for plain old pink and white instead :/

Oooh! This will be so fabulous! I've had my heart set on a plum anglaise for ages. I can't wait to see this with the yellow. It will be stunning!

That's going to be so cool! While I'm having fun making my first Francaise I have to admit I love the more 1780s style dresses the most.

Really looking forward to seeing this come togehter! :D
