I finished the candy gown's petticoat today and sewed on the trimmings to the Gainsborough hat I'm wearing with it. I also monkeyed around with the alternate petticoat of the same fabric as the gown and I've come to the conclusion that the organza one actually looks better. It's almost too much stripes and pink with the matchy matchy petticoat. For now I'm keeping it but it may be destined to be a jacket later on. I also pawed through the stash looking to see what else was in there that might look good with the cotton candy petti and found a few options for future gowns. I just need to hem it, attach the neckline lace and do the front fastening and them I'm done - that was astonishingly fast!
