A Sacque

My gown is coming along.   I am doing the stomacher now, then the sleeve ruffles and ruching down the side front opening.


I just love the backs on a sacque!

Here is a gown in Kyoto that is similar to the way I want to trim this, but I'm just using ruching, not lace.

Mrs Otis also wore this basic style in the John Singleton Copley painting, but it might be a "studio gown", a gown owned by the artist, that he painted a other women in.
