3rd July 2013: IT HAS ARRIVED! So after almost writing this entire costume off for LFCC. My wonderful bodice fabric turned up on my day off work (of all days! =__=)

I used a Butterick B5662 patern for the bodice which was perfect to use! Fabric is a specialist printed fabric from Spoonflower.com. (Be warned that it can take around 3 weeks to get to you if you're in the UK. I found that out the hard way!)

The pattern was pretty simple to follow and I sought help with the boning and channels from this amazing instructables page. http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-Corset/ I used 26 x 30cm long ringed steel bones (A lot I know but the pattern had so many panels and channels. but at 34p each I can't complain really!)

I'm not sure what else to see here but I hope this is helpful :D

18th June 2013: Everyday I'm ruffling I'm going to run out of things soon :'D Sooo ruffling started on the skirt after last weekends bustle adventure! This badboy has been so easy to make so far thanks to the awesome laughing moon pattern I got (which helped me so much with my bustle too!)

I haven't finished the ruffles yet but I HAD to put up something because I need to convince myself that I can get this done in time for LFCC XD

I found some 2 tone taffeta online and prayed that it would come out an ok colour. and I think it did. I still need to weather, etc a lot. (And ad a back panel to the skirt :'D

12th June 2013: Everyday I'm bustling Soooo not even an hour had passed after my exam and I found myself fabric shopping for skirt stuffs XD

My aim for this week was get started on the bustle and asside from a little bit of stuffing and tidying up. I'd say it's practically done :D

I have some basic fabric for the skirt and need to dye the lace which I've bought. But now that the bustle is essentially made, I can make a start on the skirts :D

So excited for this :D
