3rd December 2011: Blouse work I decided to make the actual patterned part of the sleeve de-tatchable away from the main part of the blouse, so I used elastic in the ends of the sleeves to fix them down in place.
2nd December 2011: All skirts and painting finished Finally with everything painted on,fashioned and secure and weighting my body down like a hippo, I could move on with the task of constructing a blouse that was just to the game, but could also have some practical functions. Also here, I think is when I made my bloomers to wear underneath this all~
2nd December 2011: Paint work on the underlayer pannels Matching the stripes up right was just, hell almost! Though through sheer patients and the knowing of what might be he end result kept me going.
2nd December 2011: Front skirt paint I had the front of the skirt brought up into a slight arch, so trying to fit the different levels of heart and twirled pattern rightly, was a problem. Though with a little fiddling here and there I managed to get it to a place where it looked presentable.
2nd December 2011: Finished band and corner That corner hated me.... And I dreaded making my way around to the other side!
2nd December 2011: Third skirt layer paint work Freezer paper stenciling makes this project alive today! The only thing I had, was only being able to do small segments at time to make sure I painted it all equally.
2nd December 2011: All plain layers together Hoisted up on my mannequin in the place where I could see the entire bottom and turn the piece around so I could focus on the hems of all areas, before I started the paint work.
1st December 2011: Secondary two pannel skirt overs The space I needed for these things was HUGE, just trying to fit out half of one almost swalloed my living room whole.
1st December 2011: Pleating work on the first skirt Sooooooo much white.....
1st December 2011: The layers of skirt Underneath is a long section of black skirt and then the dark maroon coloured over skirt that goes all the way around, rather than just a single panel at the front. I know this made it a little heavier, but I felt better for it, knowing that I didn't flop out on any details.
1st December 2011: Hoop skirt and petticoat work The body of the actual dress depended on the span of the bottom skirt, so I brought in a HUGE 6 hoop skirt, and over this what I put together was some stiff gathered netting petticoats, and to add an extra poof up to the top segment, was a shorter gathered layer of nets that goes between the over-white one that ends toward the middle.
