English netting 'Blessing Dress'

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That I finally had the 'guts'to tackle the English netting. It is not for the faint of heart, if one is to treat the netting as it was intended to be sewn. There was a great deal of handwork in turning the bound seams on the dress. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Hone up on your heirloom sewing skills, and your handwork skills.

What you will need

  • Embroidered English netting for the dress
  • bonnet
  • and slippers. Silk charmeuse for off white petticoat
  • habotai silk for the pink petticoat
