Here's a little sneak peek of my 1871 dress, which I'll be wearing at Costume College this year. I finished the bodice (minus trimmings) a few days ago and had to try the whole thing on. I'm so excited for it to be almost done!
The dress has been (and still is) a huge learning curve for me. After it's completed I'm planning on writing up a blog post on the mistakes I made and what I learned from this project.
