The 1840’s Dress Cont…

So here is a little update on the corally-peach 1840’s pleated gown!

I added piping along the bottom edge of the bodice:

And then began working on the skirt.  Due to the point in the front, it is important to adjust the skirt panels to accommodate the dip without messing up the hem:

I only had enough time to put in one row of gathering stitches.  Hopefully I can complete the other row this week!

Have a great day everyone!!
