8th May 2013: FINISHED!! 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.
1st April 2013: Gathers..Still 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)
