I'm taking two gorgeous gowns and pulling inspiration from both.
|Cotton court gown from Kensington palace. |
More about it here.
|Silk and Silver Court Gown|
Acc. No. 1953-849,1
Both gowns are late century court gowns from Britain. They are both similar color schemes. The main difference: one is silk and one is cotton!
What? A cotton court gown? Yep, at least one existed and I got to see it on my last visit to Kensington Palace.
I have some beautiful cotton fabric, covered in spangles, from India (oo authentic!) that I would just love to use for this.
...Ok, so I was just getting a major flash back as I was typing -- haha -- because I have totally written this before! I wrote a post when I bought this fabric about using it for a combination of these two gowns. Wow. How ever did I forget that!?
Anyway, that is the plan and I look forward to starting on it soon.
I can't wait to see everyone else's plans and creations!
