Finished the trimming on my dress and HAD to get dressed up :D :D :D

le pictures! )

Not shown, the massive (?) amount of blood my finger left all over the inside of the bodice and front of the skirt after I stabbed pins into it trying to pin the dress closed... (I started the dress about a year ago, used a bodice pattern that fit then, but it's been a year and also late at night...)

Ladies wot do 18th century... how do you keep your shift sleeves from bunching up into your armpits? I could NOT get them down, very uncomfortable. (Also reminded myself why you do socks and shoes BEFORE corset/stays. Eesh, self, really?)

Still need to rehem the petticoat, and hem the gown, (and clean up the blood) but then it is DONE.

Sleeves!

Pretty pleased with the sleeves for my curtain along gown :) Of course, now that I've done trim on the sleeves, I'll have to put it on the neckline too...
