This is so impressive - the fabrics and trims and wonderful, and I can’t believe you screenprinted the dots on to the fabric! I was also completely blown away when comparing your dress to the references, I admire your dedication in making this.

To-Do List

We're very sorry, but we've temporarily disabled this feature while we fix some bugs. Thank you for your patience.

Progress Journal

15th July 2011

Repairs etc.

Finally getting round to replacing all the chiffon parts which got all frayed and nasty. This time I'm hemming it all properly so hopefully it won't happen again. ^_^; Also going to add the white braid to the edge of the lace part of the sleeves which i didn't do before and fix the necklace which broke.

Extra cost about £8

27th July 2010

Hand sewing is a pain.

Have added the gold braid to the underskirt. It takes a while cos it really needs doing by hand. Basic skirt and bodice are done. I have started the decoration of the skirt which is also mostly being sewn by hand. At least its giving me something to do in the evenings at home. lol.

19th July 2010

Printing

Have finally screen printed the polka dot pattern onto the red fabric for the main dress. ^_^ Its not perfect but I think it is good enough.

Also bought some more of the trims, decorations etc.

24th June 2010

That annoying braid stuff.

Finally found some gold braid which I think will work ok for this. Also found a way to do the black and gold braid stuff. I will be attaching black velvet ribbon down the middle of some of the gold that I bought. (many thanks to my Mum who was fabric shopping with me for thinking of this) Also bought the black chiffon for the sleeves and back of the main dress.

20th June 2010

more skirt progress.

Skirt is nearly done! All it needs now is the braid trim which I have yet to buy. Didn't think I would get it done quite so fast.

20th June 2010

Skirt progress

Have nearly finnished the under skirt after 3 afternoons and quite a few dumb mistakes :s Most of the time was spent heming and gathering. Also I never want to have to gather curtain/upholstry fabric again T_T Everything seems to be ok with it now though. All that is left is to do the waistband and braid details (when I have actually found the right ones)

Took a picture but didn't have the memory card in the camera and the data transfer cable is at home (have I ever said how much I hate my brain?) Hopefully will rmember to put the card in the camera and have some photos tomorrow ^_^;

17th June 2010

It begins.

Finally have managed to make a start on this after uni put it on hold for ages. I'm really hoping I get it all done :s Bought all the fabric for the under skirt and have made a start on it. The patterned bit at the very bottom was rally hard to find a good match for but I think I did ok. It doesn't seem to want me to add a photo though :(
