Moy gown facings

Moy gown facing
Originally uploaded by Catrijn.
This is the front opening of my version of the Moy gown, ready for eyelets (a change from the original, which had buttons at front). I've done just a single turn under of the edge, covered with a silk grosgrain ribbon which I was eventually able to find at Wm. Booth Draper. The scrap at lower right shows at test eyelet (which turned out well) and a test buttonhole (which decidedly didn't). Looks like I'll need to practice those a bit before I get to the sleeves on this gown.
