Tea Dyeing

The white cotton that I've used for the top of the skirt was a little too light and clean-looking, so I stained the fabric in a tea bath. Once the pieces are dry, I'll cut and distress them before attaching the skirt pieces together.

Work so far

Bodice now has the woven halter strap, which is made up of braided pieces of the wool-mix fabric and then sewn on. All the skirt and bodice pieces still need distressing, while the skirt needs shortening and the white belt piece is currently too wide and needs to be narrowed. (Same issue with the lighting - it makes everything look a lot darker than in reality!)

Skirt Pieces

The suede, wool-mix fabric and cotton pieces that make up the skirt were cut out and pinned to get an idea of size. All the pieces now need to be distressed and some of them painted/re-coloured before being sewn together. (Same thing with the lighting - colours are a little different in the picture than they actually are!)

Made a start on the bodice. I made a mock-up pattern using scrap fabric, then constructed the pieces with the woven wool-mix that I'm using for the costume, adding darts to create a closer fit. The back is closed with velcro, and the woven halter strap still needs to be added. (The lighting in my room is terrible - the fabric isn't as dark as it looks!)
