21st October 2010: Today's progress. Under skirt is pretty much done now. ^_^ Just need to get some elastic for the waistband. I was too lazy to gather it and put on a propper band, zip etc.
Started cutting the pieces for the black dress too. Will need to work out how to edit the pattern for the neakline and sleeves as they are quite different from the pattern. Yaaay actual progress :D
9th October 2010: Sash of annoying orange fabric. So finding a good shade of orange for this was really impossible. It seems all the orange is either really dark or luminous :( Then finding fringe was even harder. T_T So I have yellow fabric that I will dye with orange to hopefully give a nice orange. For the fringe I am giving up and will use gold which will match the design on the sash and hopefully look ok.
20th September 2010: Under skirt started. I finally started to make this today! Cut pieces for the under skirt and sewed on 3 of the lace layers round the bottom. I diddn't have enough for the 4th one though so I will be off to fabric land soon to get some more. I really hope they have some of the same one left. In the mean time will start making the strips for all the ruffles.
8th September 2010: I can start now! Bought the fabric today so I can finally get started on this. Decided on cotton in the end because I wanted to keep the cost down. Unfortunately I forgot the yellowy orange fabric for the sash. I'm so stupid. I always forget something. lol
Going to make use of the last few days that my parents are on holliday and take over the diningroom table. Mwahahaha.
