|I have her on my non-historical dress form, so please excuse the wrinkles in the bodice. The skirt is just pinned in the poufs, but will be drawn up with cords, underneath.|
|The skirt down - the serpentine trim makes attaching the skirt at front a challenge, because those panels have to be straight at the top, not pleated. This type of trim works much better on a wide silhouette, with panniers, than a rounder silhouette.|
I added a tiny gusset at the underarm seam of the sleeve, giving the sleeve head more ease. Thanks to all you wonderful ladies who helped me with sleeve advice! They fit much better now!
I have just the finishing of the pleats at the waist, the hem of the skirt (oh goody), the second sabot cuff, and one more little line of trim at the waist to do, then...then it's done! Yay!
