Help. Obsessed. There may have been a Pinterest board created and it may be strictly properly sourced and maybe just updated with a gown that is included in one of the few Lafayette photos to have lots of close views. Such bliss.

I think this may be my favourite of all the gowns Worth produced like this. Though that may be because it’s Lily Langtry!
Yes, I often combine my interest in theatre, costume, and stage so of course I have a lovely file archive of Mrs Langrty.
I know a lot of people have been inspired by RedThreaded’s Worth gown, but there may be some weird web archiving glitch so here it is for anyone not yet seen!
I apologise! This image has been very hard to source. This is the other woven velvet/satin gown that is also absolutely taken up brain space!

This has horizontal bust darts! As well as curved bust seams and a waist seam to get that beautiful shaping of the velvet.
But all this has been part of my life tidying that has been happening- organising books, papers, digital files. SO this has meant reorganising my patterns and WIP and thus my recent flurry of posts.
I’ll be trying to get all my Mina posts from before the website changeover, but that may be a bit difficult!
