I got two of the three pieces successfully mocked up for the gala outfit (which are hilarious in a sort of disturbing way) and got distracted by the stays & petticoat for the chemise dress. *sigh*

I found some pale banana yellow silk in my stash and it was just enough to make a petticoat. I want to get the Diderot stays sewn together by tomorrow night so I can use the holiday weekend to sew all that blessed binding.

Question for the 18c people out there - on a petti for the chemise dress, would that be fairly light or should it have some body to it? I'm using dupioni flat-lined with light cotton muslin and will pleat it back and front to tapes, but I was contemplating binding the hem with this really heavy linen/mohair velvet I have. It will have the same effect as cording it once but I don't want it to stick out too much if it's not supposed to.

What do you think?
