This is no time for sport, there is lace at stake!

The mockup is complete! The face fabric is chosen! The lining fabric is chosen! The lace is chosen! Ummm, now what? Well, while I wait for my materials to arrive, here are some pretty pictures for you.

It is very difficult to see with photographs, but the face fabric I chose is “silky cotton voile” from Dharma Trading Co. It is a lovely soft and light cotton. Here are some pictures that give you an idea.

The lace I chose comes from my advisor Johann’s personal stock. It turns out he acquired a bag of lace at a garage sale some years back. In this collection are some perfect for Polly’s dress! Thanks Johann!

My latest mockup is very close to becoming the pattern for the final dress! I have some adjustments to make to the lining, the sleeves, and the front gathers. As you can see, I took some scrap of a similar weight to the face fabric, and used it for one side of the bodice.

So you get a clearer idea of the structure, here is what it looks like before the front wrap is attached.
