Pattern: JP Ryan for both, though I altered the pattern to make the long sleeve on the green dress.
|Linen print, down with round gown style back, |
pleats stitched down
|Faux silk with embroidery. Plain style back.|
Now, the faux silk dress. I went with a color combination that is, strictly speaking, not very historically accurate. However, the burnt orange silk perfectly matches the flowers in the pattern on the green faux silk, so I could not resist. Also, I didn't have enough of the green fabric to make a petticoat anyway.
