Cross That Off My Sewing Bucket List

I have finished a Francaise gown! A short time ago I never would have attempted this style. Heck, I hadn’t even made much 18th century clothing until a couple years ago. I am very happy with the finished result. I lost a little steam on the trimming (so many rows of braid!), but yesterday I put on the final touches. Totally done!

I have to give a ton of credit to several really helpful posts that walked me through how to construct a Francaise:
-Katherine’s Sacque Tutorial
-Kendra’s Mourning Gown Dress Diary
-Maggie’s Gold Francaise Dress Diary
