The first layers of my IRCC2 entry. In the first picture on the right. This picture focuses on the silk gaze partlette.
I decided to stick with a sleeveless back laced gown. I cartridge pleated the skirt with a smooth front. This emulates the venetian gowns and will add fullness to the skirt of my overgown.
Here is a shot that shows the side back lacing that I hand bound the eyelets.
I'm wearing a thigh length camica that was pieced together with insertion stitch.
I'm thinking to also wear this gown with an apron and a tighter sleeve camica for a more casual outfit. The bottom two pictures really show off how dense cartridge pleating gives the skirt great movement.
