HSF '14 challenge #17

My sewing circle does a hand-made gift exchange for Christmas and I tend to give vouchers for articles of clothing or embroidery in lieu of making something beforehand. This year, I'm making an 1880's evening dress for my friend C.

 The silk (from my stash once again) is a warm gold, although it doesn't photograph as such, and I plan to pair it with a chocolate brown bodice and overskirt.
