Sheer Dress

I'm at it again: Dress #2 for Civil War reenacting! This time, I'm making a sheer... since it is August and so steamy hot. This is what I plan on remaking:

It's an original found on http://www.thegracefullady.com, in the sheer dress section. It's so, slo lovely. I'm using a pretty blue floral print dear Sarah Jane from Romantic History passed on to me. It may not show off quite as nicely as the polka dots, but I can't resist the pretty yoked look! It seems nice and cool for the summer, too. Now... *sigh* all I have to do is get started. I've GOT to stop procrastinating!

Next weekend, the 20-22. It's up your way in Galesburg -- you should come over and see me!

I LOVE this style. The yoked effect, the sleeves, the wide flounce on the skirt. . .so beautiful. You will be stunning Jenny! You are braver than I am - I stick to very plain, unadorned styles for the most part since something like the yoke (it looks like it may be shirred?) scares me death. I'm sure you will do a smashing job! I can't wait to see it when its done!
