New Clothes for Yren
This is my third version of Biscuitbear's 18th century dress. I liked how pretty she looked in the gold fabric, but I put it away for a long time because I had trouble with the back. It would have been easier to just start over, but I'd already ruched and applied all that vintage lace. But today when I got it out again it didn't seem so discouraging, and I finished it up.
I've been working on this Trench coat for about three weeks, adapting it from a Barbie-size pattern that appeared in a dollmaking magazine in 1989. I spoiled a lot of fabric trying to get it right. Now I have the pattern pretty much set, but it's still tricky to sew!
