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!
