Not your favourite period! I *LOVE* that period. Especially the mens coats/jackets. I would love to make one of them up for me.

Wonderful! Your hoops turned out far better than mine :) Great job!

The picture does not show the gown. This picture shows chemise, stays, pocket hoops, and petticoats. There is a picture showing the gown in my review of Simplicity 3637. I base my statement that the gown is too short in front on the way the hem hangs and the way the skirt attached to the dress. I assumed that more formal gowns were meant to sweep the floor even if daywear did not. This may be a faulty assumption.

Absolutely gorgeous! The gown in your picture is not too short at all, in fact, a period gown would be a little longer than ankle length, in order to show off the expensive shoes they wore. Another hint, on my pocket hoops, I went to the hardware store and bought the longest plastic cable zip ties I could find, cut them to length and inserted those in the tunnels. Sometimes I find rigiline to be too weak for the weight on the skirts and the hoops would collapse.
