          18th Century Ribbon Embroidered Skirt Panels

          So a few months back I posted about looking for more examples of 18th century ribbon embroidery. The AMAZING Suzi Clarke?did me proud and told me,

          I have two front pieces from a gown like the top one [my court dress inspiration image], which are embroidered with ribbons in different colours. They are ivory silk and are shaped. Do you want to e-mail me to discuss how I can share them with you? I also have some ribbons very like the originals.

          Did I want to see them? DID I?

          Grand Panier Petticoat for the Semi-OCD

          I thought I didn’t have anything else to say about my petticoat for my robe de cour, but then I started getting OCD and thought some of you might as well!

          Updated to add: never mind.?I found that the BEST and easiest way to make things line up nicely is just to do the pleating OFF of the dress form/panier. Then you don’t have to do anything complicated, you can just pleat things up nicely and sew across the top edge. Duh.
