Beautiful dress. So much detail. The layers upon layers of pleating must have taken a small lifetime.

2 days left (Posted 25th October 2011)

2 Days left to complete and I have Finished the Corset all Gold trims are on and Skirt is nearly complete. Only things left are wings and finishing the Skirt.
Crown has been made too so not to shabby I think XD

5 Days to go (Posted 22nd October 2011)

With 5 days to go I have lots to do o3o Such as

Attach netting up into Petticoat
Hemming
Crown
Corset
Wings
Trims

TwT

Top progress (Posted 20th October 2011)

Here is the top in progress. As you can see its 10 sizes too big to get the puff at the top XD but that has been sorted now and actually fits her better ^^

Wing start (Posted 20th October 2011)

Heres the start of the wings Never made faerie wings before and this is the best I could do ^^; Its only one wing obviously but yeah you get the idea XD

Butterflies (Posted 20th October 2011)

Just because they where cute we are adding small butterflies to the dress ^^ also here is the wing material

Gold trim (Posted 20th October 2011)

Gold trim is pinned onto the cuffs for the moment to see how it fits and covers up the edges of the pink

The Secret behind the puffs (Posted 20th October 2011)

Since I am so short of time I have used the petticoat as the Secret behind the puffs. This petticoat already had perfect five layers of netting! They are too long but With help of thread and needle this helps to tuck it all in and even more puff is made which is awesome and it also just helps me make everything! So the dress has a built in Petticoat as it were XD

Sleeves (Posted 20th October 2011)

Here is a progress of the sleeves. I have used the Elastic scrunch tenquine to make the top half of Sakuras Dress. This works great as it holds it up aswell! I feel smart at the moment lol. The photo of the sleeve in progress The basic shape of the pink pinned on. Gold to be placed over the top in due time

Corset Progress 2 (Posted 19th September 2011)

Here is an update on the Corset for Sakura. This can't be complete yet as waiting on some wire and Steel boning for it. I have started to pin in place the gold trim which I can only do alittle off before I can't do more due to wire and boning needed.

Corset Start (Posted 19th September 2011)

Today I have Started the Corset to this cosplay. I have cut out the Shapes for both the outer and the lining. Currently pinned into place in photo.
I have added a panel of Purple into it as on the ref photo there is only a small pink section which wouldn't have made the Corset as good as it can be. So I have put in the purple to camouflage into the dress! Hopefully that works and gives it some more support.

Corset template (Posted 16th September 2011)

Last night I started making a template using some left over fabric to make this corset. I got the basic pattern done meaning I can now move onto the proper thing soon!
