and her gown will be made out of a black and red damask I've had lying around forever. I've had about four other people covet it and it's taken me years to find something to do with it. I finally just bit the bullet and cut it up. The pattern of the fabric matches the portrait pretty closely. The dress is done right now except for the sleeves and the hem, because I want to see if she wants to wear it over her underskirt for dancing. She'll get to try it on when she comes up next weekend, so hopefully everything will fit and work out.
