Yorkshire Cosplay Con - 1st place handmade (with Crazedteensie)

Showcased 9th May 2016

5th March 2016: Petticoat Abyss 3 : At last I see the light IT IS DONE
It's taken about 100 hours of fray-checking, sewing, ruffling and altering later, the petticoat is to a point I feel I can wear it and it look okay. It's not perfect, the layers seem to grow and shrink of their own accord, but for all intents and purposes, it's done and I can actually do something else!

21st February 2016: Petticoat abyss 2: gross sobbing I was right, this IS the story of how I died, or at least the nerves in my hands did...
I'm about halfway through the 6th layer and I've started dreaming about ruffles. Each layer of petticoat has had ruffles sewn around each side of the bottom hem, then the ribbons were flipped the right way and tacked together. THEN each layer had a long strip of tulle gathered onto it for extra fluff.
There are horsehair supports on the 3rd layer, so the upper layers don't crush the bottom layers as much (they've EATEN the shortest layer send help)

If you ever decide to embark on the rufflebutt madoka tutorial: DO NOT HANDSEW IT did I mention my hands are dying

This skirt is much fluffier than in the photo. I've hung it up oddly, and I think one of the layers has gone into hiding...or the skirt is eating itself haha

16th January 2016: Petticoat abyss 1 Today I gathered 100yds (approx 88m) of ribbon into ruffles, thanks to Crazedteensie kindly letting me steal her machine for the evening!
I still have 1 22m (25yds)spool left in case I run out or have a ruffle emergency c:
Everyday I'm rufflin' (not my pun)

11th January 2016: This is the story of how I died Over 20m of different fabrics and 100m of ribbon later, and I think I might have enough fabric for the Petticoat of Death...
I'll be following the Rufflebutt tutorial as much as I can, but I think this cosplay is going to be the end of me haha
