Blue Linen Dress Re-Do Swatches

So as promised I finally took a picture of the materials that will be going along with the light blue dress. I haven’t been able to do much work on recently but I’m hoping that will change next week. This week I’ve been in a super cleaning mode. “Nesting” is what my husband calls it. I’m just short of rearranging the whole house.

So here’s the picture of the materials. The lighting I think may have cause the colors to be slightly off in the picture but you can get the idea. The light blue is a piece of what I’ve already removed from the sides. The gold is a strip of to be formed bias tape that will cover the seam between the light blue and dark blue pieces. The dark blue will be the added border and lacing tabs to make it a laced surcoat. Come to think of it, I should post a picture of the pattern piece that I’ve drafted out to complete the sides as well. There’s not much to see really and the dark blue looks almost black but there it is.
