FINISHED!! (Posted 8th May 2013)
That's right! I've finished it! I wore it once which was on Saturday to test it out and see which parts needed more work. I got so many compliments, I'm really happy.
There are acouple of things I need to alter but those will only take me a few hours to do. I'll upload photos this weekend as my wonderful girlfriend, who is an amazing photographer, is going to take them for me.
Gathers..Still (Posted 1st April 2013)
Yup, that's right, I'm STILL making gathers for this damned skirt >< They are driving me crazy.
Well I've gathered the last of the taffata I have, shall have to buy more on Friday. So far I only have 2 complete layers on the skirt though there 10 lots of mone going up the skirt to try and work out how many layers I will end up needing (Approx 12)
I have begun the other parts of the dress. Made the band for the top of the halterneck, made the underbust corset and begun the headpiece.
To do (remaining)
Finish gathers on the skirt
