Marie Antoinette dress

Made a small amount of progress on the Marie Anntoinette dress, i found 5 metres of a lovely blue silk fabric on ebay
As per usual the photograph doesnt do the fabric justice and the shade doesnt quite look right but it really is very close to the colour of the real thing i think.
I also found an antique broach which looks very much like the belt clasp that she is wearing on the red velvet belt
Its possibly a bit too small, but i think it will suffice :) Looking forward to starting making this although it will be a while before i can start, early may at the earliest.

Elizabethan Dress Completed

My final fitting and crit for the Poppea Elizabethan dress was on Monday and i finally had chance to sort through the photographs and pick out the best ones.
Here they are;

Unfortunatley the corridoor was pretty small so it wasnt really easy to get full length photographs, but they will definatley be taken during the fashion show in may once i have the shoes as well...

Elizabethan Collar

For my 1600 Poppea Costume i wanted to make a standing collar, it took a loooooong time and was very fiddly but i am very happy with the result...
