I love your dress. I've always had the thought that it would be fun to do an 18th c dress using shower curtains so this is right up my alley. Too cool.

Actually, I DID just order the pattern for Pocket Hoops and other "historical underpinnings" (B4484). At first I didn't realize that's how the skirt stayed so "poufy"!! The exhibit is for the 225th anniversary of Transylvania University in Lexington, KY--opens Sept 16th. Right now I'm working on the corset for underneath...I'm having so much fun with this pattern!

Too cool! I have this pattern and can't wait to make it; Don't think I would have thought to make it in clear blue plastic, but yours turned out great! What is the art exhibit?

Fantastic! I love how airy it looks, so delicate. Have you built a set of stays for underneath?
