The finished closed-front robe à la française

I only now realised I never posted pictures of my closed-front robe à la française. Well, it was finished (sort-of)
and worn at the ball in June, and I had an absolute blast:

Now I need to change a few things. The bows on the sleeves are set on the wrong place and need to be moved
(that is what happens when you attach them five minutes before you really should leave…).  And the decorations on the
robe needs to be sewn down along the edges and not only with basting stitches in the middle. I also plan to make
a pair of winged cuffs and an embroidered stomacher so I can use the gown for an earlier date than the 1760s.
