Information

I saw the episode Dangerous Liasions and just fell in love with Elena's dress which is weird for me as usually when I cosplay I girl I tend to stick to quite basic gowns or catsuits but I thought this would be a change. Because Katniss Girl on Fire is currently on hold until further notice I decided to "borrow" the wig from that for Elena. Its a bit too long but otherwise works pretty well.

I'm actually looking forwards to wearing a proper dress for once. The fabrics aren't 100% perfect but I only have till end of June to get it done by and even though the sequin fabric is a little bit too gold I think it will work.

Bodice

So after spending a few days (only a few hours in total) trying to sort out the bodice to fit me properly as apparently I have a size 8 chest but a size 12 waist and a size 10 hips I finally managed to get a decent size bodice. My gold sequin fabric arrived this morning so spent the evening sorting out that.

The way I decided to do the bodice in the end was to cut out the tulle and sequin and attach the tulle to the sequin fabric before sewing all the seams. So far I only have the back of the bodice done and need to go buy some satin tomorrow before I can do the ribbon detailing on the bottom of the bodice so I can sew one of the side seams together. Also have to be careful doing the ribbon as one side of the bodice will have a zip in it.
