trying to be good

Wingeo chemise de la reine

 This pattern wasn't bad... just incomplete instructions... no advice on seam treatments... and the cuff pattern was short about an inch... I had to redraw it. Also the facing?? casing?? was odd, so I used a piece of twill tape, cut down to 1/4 of an inch. I think I might make a drawstring casing at the waist also. The hem needs to be done yet. I'll mark it and do it up tomorrow.

This dress is to be a remake of this portrait:



I need to figure out the sash...I really like the lovely bow / fabric flower at c.f... I'd like to duplicate that.... and I have a pattern for the organdy cap she has on, that's next on my list. other than the hem, this project is finished. 

Here are some pictures of my remake...
