And sew it begins! The first stage of the Marie Antoinette [film] inspiration gown is complete! Here are a few images of the completed pocket hoops. They are made of 100% white cotton with 3 rows of buckram/steel wire boning. The waistband closes at the back with a button.
The pockets collectively measure 20″ across (each hoop is 10″ wide) and 18″ long. They are moderately sized pockets and will accommodate the shape of the polonaise quite nicely.
