Sneak Peek- New Ball Gown

The Emerald Regency Society has our annual Spring Ball in Eugene tomorrow night.  I'm giving a bonnet-making demonstration beforehand, and we're having a picnic the next day, so it will be a whole Regency weekend.  I have a new ball gown for the occasion.  It's a very pretty pale blue and gold brocade, decorated with cream colored braid.  I used point d'esprit over satin and taffeta for the sleeves and front panel, and I added pointed scallops on the sleeves and a knife-pleated ruffle at the bottom.  Here are some pictures of it.

Stay tuned for pictures of the ball and picnic!
