Black is black



This gown turned into an involved bit of work. Black flocked see thru fabric over black taffeta, with black velveteen bodice and trimmings. I did a lot of beading over the front of the bodice and as trimmings on the petals over the sleeves. It's a visiting dress with it's own Pelerine trimmed out with black lace. The same black lace trims the bottom of the dress. I like the way it turned out and will make a bonnet to match when I can get black straw.
Otherwise it's fine as is.
