|Toquet Brode. Robe a Collet|
I love everything about it except the hat. Some people adore the hat, especially Hat-o-philes like The Hungarican Chick but, I think it leaves something to be desired.
So, as most of your sewing enthusiasts out there know, creating, even from a premade pattern is a process, and everyone has a different process.
Aria Clements, of Aria Couture and I scrutinized and agonized and argued and agreed over this plate for quite some time. Mrs. Cunningham was kind enough to gift me PLENTY of the most delicate flowing red cotton for this creation. :)
I purchased buttons at Button Emporium and Ribbonry and we set off. Aria was kind enough to drape on me, as I wanted it custom, and Large Marge has not been successfully altered to look less like a pointy boobed something and one can not drape on oneself without heartache, and I had enough of that in my future. Aria is quite skilled at this and we had a little helper!

So, finally...after DAYS and WEEKS and MONTHS of this process, we have achieved!
