I keep coming back to a very small handful I really want to work on, and realised I have a major love for very stark gowns.


I mean Sunburst or not on that skirt that gown would be on my Must Make list anyway.


 


Virginie Gautreux by JS Sargent and Rose Caron by Toulmouche.


I have actually made part of each, but I really want a nice silk satin for Mme X. I need about 8m and in a nice heavy weight that’s just not really been on the cards. But, sales are sales so fingers crossed one coincides with a bit of luck 🙂


My day ensembles have tended to also be a bit stark like my grey dress and this is in keeping with that with a touch of Worth:



Worth’s Cleopatra yellow wool dress.


I also have to admit the fabric I just cut for my new duvet cover (one of a set of curtains) has such a huge pattern it’s super tempting to make a Worth-a-like based on those oversized patterned velvets. The front is a crinkle silver with chenille waves, but the reverse.. now the reverse looks like black velvet with flat silver waves and that is just too much to resist. Well I hope I can because I *might” just be able to get a frock out of it. But I want a high necked version. That might be a bit much. The curtains had huge eyelets at the top which est into the amount that is free. That said I do have a strip.. but also my new duvet cover is so pretty that it really needs a bit of matchy matchy in terms of pillow covers.



It might be possible for a more 1890 vs 1895 look.
