9th February 2011: After much pinning...and repinning, and threats of burning... Well, here are the two front petals, and the top for Estelle's underdress! Funnily enough, the petals have caused me much grief - and there really isn't any reason why they should have! But it will teach me for having both the art concept and game concept besides me as references, which have slightly different shapes and different levels of foofy-ness.
I'm sticking to the interfacing plan - I may reintroduce my tutu after more interfacing, unless it still causes weird lumps to form in the petals. Though luckilly, the way it is sitting on my hips is making it flare out nicely anyway, so there may be no need for the tutu (except to prance around in generally, but that goes without saying...)
Sorry- I'm standing in such a weird pose! It is because I'm using poppers to attatch it all together, but as it still needs lots done to it before that stage, I just normally pin it to the mannequin. Unfortunately, I can't do this when trying it on, though the pins like to try and do this anyway, so lots of stabbing ensues! (Today's try on consisted of yelps of pain, scratches and a very loud ripping sound and a small scream from me- which is why this costume is lucky to have not been thrown on a bonfire!)
