I should not be thinking about this.....

.....but I have the fabric, beautiful olive green silk.

Veneto Bartolomeo? 'Portrait of a Lady in a Green Dress'

And it would by really nice to have a more pregnancy friendly court gown, with a higher waste like this, that could still be worn after. My IRCC II gown, although wonderfully warm, is really heavy and made for a very uncomfortable afternoon for my back and shoulders.

...and this would go together quickly as there isn't very much in the way of hand-workable details....on the other hand I don't know If I can go so plain...

I'm also really liking this portrait by Bambino;

And it has roughly the same color scheme of green and gold with room for black to be thrown in (heraldic colors).  The only problem, with either one, is the balzo and my ineptness at that sort of creation.....

 I don't know, like I said, I shouldn't even be thinking like this with so much other stuff needing done...but I have the fabric and the idea has entered my brain and it may just not let go.....


  1. I think it's not so much plain as it allows the sumptuous fabric tell the story. Fit and accessories would take it over the top in awesome factor. I think you should!

    1. Between you and my hubby saying go for it, here I go!! LOL. Decided to get as close a look to the portrait as possible, as I do love how it all goes together, and you are right about the accessories really bringing it together, hopefully I can spend a goodly amount of time on those, as the dress itself really shouldn't take too terribly long.

    2. Woohoo! Can't wait to see it come together.
