Rustling Silk Stripes by ColeV Rustling Silk Stripes by ColeV
1780s silk cut-away gown I built. It is completely hand-sewn. The buttonholes are functional and fasten with two-tone death head buttons. The bodice is lined with linen and has a layer of muslin sandwiched between for extra stability. The front "zone" is attached to the stripe and treated as a full front. I will try to put up detail and interior shots soon. The back is quartered.

The matching striped pattern of the sleeves and the back are incredible! It looks so great!

You are amazing. Did you use a pattern as a jumping off point?

Thanks! It was actually draped at a workshop, but I've used that "pattern" to start some other gowns as well.
