This is an update to this post.
I went up to my mom’s again this weekend and we got SO MUCH DONE! I ended up switching to a modified pattern that I thought would look better, and it worked! We only had to make two revisions of the pattern before we were set to go.
Here’s a couple pictures of our “sample dress” which we made using cheap white satin so we could adjust the pattern/make sure it worked:
Here’s the lace pieces on the table with the peach charmeuse
– they’re so pretty!
Here’s a shot of me trying on the bodice (it’s unfinished in this photo):
And here’s a few more shots of the bodice as we progressed:
So as you can see we went from starting from nearly scratch —> putting together a mockup —> getting the bodice entirely constructed except for adding the boning and the zipper, which has to wait until we have the skirt ready to attach as well.
Now I am finishing beading and sewing on my embellishments (the pearl and lace flowers on the bodice), and my mom is going to cut out and sew together the skirts – 2 layers of the peach silk charmeuse, plus who knows how many layers of peach and ivory tulle, all circle skirts.
Next time we meet up we will attach the skirt and the bodice, hem the skirt, and put in the zipper and boning, and she’ll be done! I can’t wait!
Thanks for looking!
