Tucked petticoats

Pookie has also acquired two tucked petticoats.  I am thrilled with how they turned out.  They give great "poof" to her dresses. 

Blue Dress

Pookie's blue dress is mostly complete, but here is a sneak preview.  It is based on a CDV (carte de visite) from the Civil War period.  It has box pleats, a smooth bodice and tulip sleeves.  Her little chemise sleeves peek out from the dress.  I am especially excited about the sleeves because they are the first thing that I have drafted all on my own.
