Phew, bodice is now joined successfully to knickers at last, it's starting to look like a costume. Zipper and fasteners also done, and I had to put boning up the back to stop the zipper buckling. :/
(Forgot to mention that the material I bought is a streatch velor fabric rather than stiff material, just cos I liked the look of this stuff when I saw it. :)Working with streatch fabric has its problems though, and I've got to use shoulder straps because the bodice won't stay up on its own. Ah well..
Now on to the tutu frills (looking forward to this part). That will leave just detailing.
Running out of time quickly, but I'm confident it will all be finished in time.
Oh, wig has come, and I fitted some hair slides to the Tiara. Tested it all on, woohoo! I'm pleased how it looks. :)
Shopping tomorrow in the city market for the 'Feathers'. I have a few cunning plans to try for the main feathers on the tutu. ;)
