The next garment is the Post Edwardian Day Dress.
As I was doing my research, I was not thrilled with any of the images that I found as most just looked like the ones from the Titanic movie (with Leonardo DiCaprio) or they had more lace work then I can deal with right now. I finally came across this image and I was sold…
So to go along with Erick’s vest that I will outline later, I am thinking of doing a silk teal with the following trim:
I don’t know what fabric yet, but seeing as I don’t have the corset finished yet or the mock up of the dress done, this isn’t a huge problem.
This is the pattern I will be using for the base on both the evening and the day dress, how you lay the top layers and set up the trains.
The day dress will have a lace GUIMP, and look close to View A. When it comes to the lace I am probably going to do some more research and then look for some antique lace.
