Niece III's Robe A La Francaise (Or something)

Also can be titled. 'I'm DRAFTING/DRAPING BIOTCHES' or 'OMG WHY DID I THINK THIS WAS A GOOD IDE!??' Or 'Family Historical Portrait, Take Three"

18th century. Pocket Hoops, Big Hair, things embellished with the same zealous fanaticism as a 90's girl with a bedazzler. Whats not to love?

As with many things I like to have a variety of projects going on at once, at least 2 but no more than three. This is one of those projects, in addition to my first set of hoops and stays, my Niece III's dress. I recently got access to Janet Arnolds Patterns of fashion, but the idea of self drafting for an adult, combined with the added inches for my waist and a desire to have ALL THE THINGS NOW has led me to this. A tentative, still challenging but not quite sewing suicide. Heh, SEWicide.
