|Time Taken :||prob over 24 hours...|
|SO MUCH HANDSEWING.|
I used a base dress I already owned for this, took off many bits from it and added on all the skirts, detailing and made the arm decorations.
Worn at JCC for the evening.

started ribbon sewing (Posted 9th July 2011)
started sewing on the ribbon onto the skirts, one done so far, took about 2-3 hours hand sewing. im not doin it in ruffles cos honestly i wud then need twice the amount of ribbon im already using and then it wud cost me about 30quid so intstead im jst gonna go with the crinkled look. picture doesnt really show the grey colour rite its a lot darker and the crinkles will show when the skirt is attached
finished hemming skirts (Posted 3rd July 2011)
thats the worst bit for them really, attachin ribbon some time next week tho i have a friend over so wont be doin much sewin i doubt.. will go into hyper extreme sewin mode after that to get this done in time for sept :S

startin... (Posted 12th June 2011)
wanted to get goin on this costume even tho my holiday hasnt officially started yet but it was hangin on my door goin PAY ATTENTION TO ME. so far iv cut out the material for ths skirts, may start sewing them 2mos. also found some extra stuff in my material box can use for the upper sleeves to make em more poofy
the start (Posted 8th April 2011)
even tho i dont have material yet i really wanted to start this so i started with the basic customisation of the dress.. just removin various bows n lace already attached and cuttng it shorter... and my god is it short. thank goodness i get to wear shorts under this. corset and long sleeves are next on the list methinks... also... grey (?) lace around the top of dress and puffed out sleeves. also maybe some more pleats for the front skirt so its a bit bigger?
