  1. Fabulous! I am in awe of 8384--look at that amazing bodice!!!

  2. I think that first evening gown would be so pretty in the right fabric minus the ruffles. Although I don't think the second evening gown's bodice would be very flattering (horizontal stripes), it would be a fun challenge to sew. All the illustrations make me wish hats were in vogue again.

  4. Thanks Betsy!
    I love doing it. I have so many lovely images, seems selfish to keep them all to myself.
