Got set back last night when I realized I had FORGOTTEN to add a gore in the skirt, which was why it simply wouldn't lay right. Now when you look at the skirt on the right side, there's a whole Lotta piecing going on haha. Sleeves maybe tomorrow?

Box pleats are stitched in place and I am now working on the skirt pleats. Hopefully the fronts will go on this evening and I'll have sleeves in tomorrow :)

Chiné a la branche, also called warp printed silk, and ikat, is as dear to my heart as paisley as far as #georgian #patterns go, but rather harder to source.  I've found some nearly as pretty as this one from the Met though, so watch this space...⠀

I love how over-the-top 1890s fashion got, like this Paquin evening dress with its layers of texture in the bodice, enormous frilled sleeves, and full skirt.  It's a beautifully balanced design too, with interest from every angle.⠀
