Dragonfly rococo

I received an awesome present from Mme. Kupferfeuer for my birthday – some more of the dragonfly fabric I liked so much!

I definitely want to do some rococo with it; with hips and all.

Next step: fabric for a jupe. After extended discussion with my sewing companions, I went for off-white and beige, with black accents.

I won’t make it to Gala Nocturna this year, but I’ll still make an outfit honouring the dress code Beauty and the Beast…

And also maybe a simple hat?

I have this big bergère lying around which could be used with the gown (no need to carry a parasol, plus adding to that “pastoral feeling“):
