Ambitious Indeed!

Have I mentioned that I like to bite off more than I can chew? Not only am I in the middle of trimming my spoon bonnet, repairing my parasol, and creating a sheer day dress, I am also tackling my 1860's ball gown. (I must be crazy.) It needs to get done considering it was haphazardly put together in two days so I would finally have a gown to wear for the ball at Greenfield Village. Needless to say the construction can be improved upon. ;) I also have the time now to spend on fitting the bodice properly and making my sash and embellishing the bodice the way I wanted to from the get go. Here is my inspiration:

The Empress Eugenie Surrounded by Her Ladies-in-waiting
