8th October 2017: Bows! I love making bows so happy this costume has a couple! Pictured is back bow and neck bow. Couple of layers of medium weight interfacing used to help keep the shapes.
3rd October 2017: Dress Progress I ended up making this an all in one piece with a zip up the back as it just seemed easier that way. I drafted the patterns myself from some existing clothing. The sleeves are so silly, I love them XD
1st October 2017: Skirt and Wig Progress Princess Principle quickly grabbed my attention this season, I'm a sucker for anything with a Victorian-esqe setting, plus the characters were really likeable from the get go. Princess Charlotte is my favourite character from the show and her white state affairs outfit my fav costume. I knew I wanted to make it ASAP as I had most of the fabric I'd need stockpiled from other costumes cut offs. Sometimes panic buying too much fabric works out well in the long run!
I started with the skirt as that seemed the simplest bit, I decided on two box pleated skirts layered on top of one another with a shared waistband and zip at the back. Pleats need a bit more pressing still but it's essentially done.
I also styled the wig quickly as I wanted to get the measurements I'd need for the hat, pretty simple one apart from the little hair flicks, Got2Be glued and wax to hold that together!
Delusional - 20th January 2018
I adore this costume, it's so clean and I love the hat :D
