Anglaise [Feb. 5th, 2011|11:56 am]

I have finally settled with the anglaise. Its going to be a very typical early anglaise, with a hip vollume, center front fastening,trim in the neck and on the sides of the oveskirt, a ruffle at the skirt, and ruffled cuff endings at the sleaves. I use an ivory rococo rayon ribbon in the edge of the trimmings, handsewn on off cause and the collour of the dress is the khaki taffeta.
I played with trimmings yesterday, and i make gathered in the center pleats, that looks like small bows.
I am glad i finally setteled with a solution. Today i am going to cut out lots of strips for the trim, its so cosy to sit and make that, and i can watch movies on dvds. I have more than 30 meters of the ribbon,so it should be plenty.
Oh and very dangerous, they opened a 5 star cake and chokolate café just across my street. I read the newspapers and they had an article of it, giving it 5 stars. I had had a look in the window, and it looked soo yummy!

The plans for the Anglaise sound pretty! And a wonderful cafe is a very dangerous thing indeed. Sounds delicious!
