Off to her favorite watering hole, in her new striped gown. The skirt needed some fullness under it to give it that little touch of flare. So I made her a new petticoat, with a double net flounce.
The bodice has a plastron attached separate over the bodice, and ends in a kind of wide band that closes in the back.
Over the bodice, she wears a white lace bolero. This is made up with a combination of two different types of lace, over a firm net ground.
This gown is another very useful example of using lace in a tasteful way, and not just as a border trim. The hat is a "boater" style, wide brim design, completed with feathers and self ribbon bows.
She looks ready for her promenade.
