The Edwardian Dress - second instalment

Pinned together to see how it looks.

The little bustle on the back is embroidered with black crows.

The grey fabric will form a long train that’s painted to match the bodice.

I’ve now got the lining and boning ready to cut and put together for the corset, and I need to put that skirt together and onto a waist band.

Next instalment soon!
