Hook and Eyes, Not Recommended

  • Work on the fastenings, reinforcements under the bust, and a better fastening up at the collar.
  • New wig and wig cap, poor thing's about had it.
This is Simplicity 2887, with a few alterations.

The velvet was just too bothersome to stitch well so I took the leftover taffeta and stitched lace around the tabs. I may weight them with some ornaments.

It's over corset Simplicity 9769 and the hoop skirt and petticoat Simplicity 9764.

All in all I found this challenging but not out of my novice reach. Many thanks to the internet and all you wonderful people who post tutorials.
