Monday Progress Update: June 4

Another Monday Progress Update post on a Tuesday.  This time it's due to Dress U.  I'll have a long review post up soon, but here's what I've been up to otherwise:



I finished putting all the buttons on my Regency gown!  I think I made the back quite too high because it needed 14 buttons.  I had to sew them on at Dress U because I had to go to two different stores to get them all.



I also finally got a picture of my 1920's party dress!




Here's what's on my dress form now: I'm going back to working on the Bizenghast Lake Dress for WorldCon!



I've been doing some watercolor trim painting samples for it, I'm still deciding if I'll do the trim in watercolor, paint, or some combination.




Also have been on quite a shopping spree lately, due to inspiration from all the lovely people I've been seeing at events the last few weeks!  I've got a lovely green check wool, a brown check, a cream wool suiting, a teal wool crepe, a blue/gold taffeta, a red/gold with red stripes, white organdy, blue and blue-green sequins, and a neat metal piece!
