I finished my pink 1860 dress a year ago but never really got great pictures of it! I've been trying to get better pictures of dresses I've made, for my portfolio, so this dress finally got it's turn!
I am absolutely incapable of not squinting my eyes in the sun so this was the very best shot of the front I could get!
Since I intended this dress to be more of a work dress when I volunteered, even though I love it with the hoop, I most often used it as an 1850 dress with a corded petticoat or none at all. With, of course my pinner apron.
I do still love those puff sleeves. They may possibly be my favorite sleeve ever.
In the meantime, I've got a historical and a modern project in the works and hopefully will get pictures of another 18th century outfit this week!!
