It's been a productive weekend already. I am really striving to make headway on my late georgian gowns. The first step after getting the stays, pockets and false rump made up, was to make inways into the petticoats. I decided to go with two. You can't see the underneath one in the photo, but it is white. The outer petticoat is made of what was left of my $2/metre 150cm wide cotton. It's actually a bit fuller at the back than the other one, and the idea is that it will slightly show through the white voile skirt to give it a creamy cast.
Now that the petticoats are done, it is onto the dresses themselves.
