I don't collect femfigs, unless five out of 500+/- counts ;). This is the second femfig outfit I've ever made, the first being for the 442 WoH dio a couple years ago.

It's a common gown of the mid to late 1700s. Not reserved to just special occasions, once a gown had passed the stage of being "best" in the wardrobe, it was worn as an everyday dress. The very term "gown" has changed up to today's useage, and is now interpreted as a flowing affair worn at royal balls, proms, drag queen competitions, EBT BBQs, etc.

Everything scratched; designed, built, etc.

There should be a couple more at least before the femalian population is complete in the fort.





Thanks for looking. :)

I like the way you've done the gown LG. It must have been hard to work out how the pattern fits around the hip area as the front pannel has a nice curve in it to get a proper 'waisted' look. The bodice is nicely tailored too, top sewwing there. Fantastic to see your work. Hope to see more of your haute couture as you need to redress the male / female balance in the fort.

Armand to beautiful woman at Joanne's Fabrics:
"I've never done a woman's dress before. I'll have to scale everything down to 1/6th but yours looks like the perfect figure. Since I'm blind, I have to do all the measurements by hand, please..."
SLAP.

Just kidding! Anyway, that is a beautiful outfit you've done. I'm assuming the bonnet was also hand-sewn - fantastic!

And I'll have to see if the OSW gallery has pics of the 442nd RCT/WOH dio somewhere.

Cheers!

Many thanks, buddies. :) Your comments are always appreciated.

Dan, I used 1/1 guides and the like to adjust to fit the BBi femfig. Alot of this stuff I've been doing in 1/1 for many years (no, not making dresses, but at least studying the subject....you just never know when you might need to put a dress on a gal ;) ). This gown/dress pictured was actually the test shot for the pattern. Turned out well enough that I just dyed it up and used it.

Romeo, lol you've outed my technique. ;)
The mob cap is a circle of fabric with a long running stitch done about 1/2 inch in from the edge. When the ends of the string are drawn, it creates the cap (like a bag). What really kicked my butt was the 7 or 8 different tries and styles at getting the hair up and looking right enough under the cap.

Many thanks, again, to everybody. I hope I answered the questions.

Outstanding bit of seamstering, LG. As others have said, you didn't just approximate the look, it's nailed down tight. Excellent turnout of what appears to me to be a complicated design.
