Progress on the laurel gown at both ends!

Well, The Dreamstress is getting along nicely on her construction of the laurel gown, and I am half way through the leaves on the overskirt.
Last night after a bit of emailing and research, I received some photos of the original dress which is in the Museum of London, and if we get the blessing of the photographer we will post some of them. It's such a privilege to see these photos, which add a whole new dimension to Arnold's drawings. Thank you to Hilary and Jordan for helping us out with our project like this!
As for me, I'll be posting some progress photos soon - I'm looking forward to doing the edgings, a change from leaves, leaves and more leaves! :)

  1. Yes please photos! I was just about to ask if there was any chance we could post them!

    With any luck tomorrows post will be about the finished underbodice of the laurel dress and the attached skirt. I'm busy getting ready for the talk/applying for jobs first though.
