Chocolate Brocade Details

Before I move on to my next sewing project, I wanted to share a few detail shots and construction notes from my new brocade francaise. As I mentioned earlier, the construction follows the same method I outlined in my Rose Francaise posts.


The Francaise Dinner and Upcoming Plans

I’m back from an exciting and hectic trip to PA for the 3rd annual Francaise Dinner. Between flight delays, long drives, and inclement weather, the trip ended up being more stressful than I had planned, but I still had a wonderful time with friends and it was great to see everyone dressed in their best finery!

With a week to spare, my new francaise is ready for its first wearing next Saturday. I have some more construction details to share but for now I'll leave you with a sneak peek of the finished dress, as well as a picture of one of two new additions to our kitty household.

As usual, though I haven’t been posting, I have been working on my new dress. With the Francaise Dinner less than a month away, I thought it was time to share my progress.

So what is on the agenda for 2014? I’m still plugging away on the riding habit, but I have to put it aside for now to start a new project.
