huh, looking up elliptical hoop skirt I got cool stes from yahoo, like tis one http://trulyvictorian.netfirms.com/undies.html and this http://www.unr.edu/sb204/theatre/Intro.html
and a thougth just hit me, what if i used heavly lined dupioni for the dress? then i wouldn't have to worry about finding shot silk satin? (and yes, I adore dupioni) also i love the hand maiden dress in this pic

it looks simple enough so i could wear it out of the house without too much staring too. another on my growing list.

okay for anyone not on the f-costume board, Cat told me to get this pattern

and i think I will, (I want to have a corset pattern) but does anyone kno how fast they shipp? oh, well we're out of this house in two weeks so i guess i would have it shipped there..... also Cat suggested these:

why is it that all the books I want aren't cheap?(okay so these aren't bad for costuming books) but the fabric. *faint* she said it's shot silk satin, heavyer then duchess, and she also said i'll probably not find it anywhere. but I can't imagine buying 20 odd yards of duchess satin! this dress will have to wait till I'm a milleonaire! i can't even afford 5 yards of the stuff! (I ddi some figuring and I came up with i need about 24 yards for the dress) just had to post that.
