The project begins.... (Posted 22nd April 2013)
I'm actually doing this costume for a friend for LFCC, I originally wanted to make it for myself but haven't had the time/money to so this makes up for it atleast. I'll still get to make it :D.
I'll be using Simplicity 1773 with a few minor alterations here and there so it looks more like the one in the movie. The pattern suggests to use satin for the under dress and suedcloth for the outer dress but I'll be using a pale blue linen for the under dress but sticking with faux suede for the outer dress.
Currently waiting for the money for the fabrics from my friend but once they arrive I'll be getting to it. Before they arrive hopefully I will be able to replicate the pattern (so I can use it again in the future) in grease proof paper in my friends size. So can't wait for this project to begin.
