As for the 1780s dress, it is coming along very nicely. It is a robe à l'anglaise with visible petticoat. I used a bedsheet for the fabric because the floral pattern was very similar to the ones used in the period. This is an example from the KCI for you to compare:
And this is my bodice with the petticoat behind (sorry for the ugly pic):
Lovely, aren't they? I love these shoes, they have a Louis hill, which is both gorgeous and historically accurate. If you're looking for leather historical shoes just check the American Duchess web page. She's just released a new shoe model and she needs to sell an specific amount to keep on, so, have a look! :) Regarding my dress, it's nearly finished, I just need to sew the skirt and bodice together and add some details ( the sleeve lace and some other details on the skirt). So probably next week I'll have new pics. Regards!
