I just finished day 13 (I think? I lost track of time after day 8....) and am almost done with the underdress in the real fabric! I think I am still on track, but have yet to draft out the cape with velvet bow trail and hoop skirt but am taking a two week sabbatical while my teacher is gone on vacation. I'll resume September 12th...I have much to think about...I'm really feeling my middle aged/kooky aunt version of myself lately. Anyhow, here are some pictures!
My inspiration wall I stare at: French architecture, Candy Darling, the dress design, Gwenyth as Elizabeth Taylor, Jean Paul Gaultier style , favorite make up "tears".
Cutting the final fabric of underskirt: Shiny Cotton with a little spandex. Looks nice with the Corset Coutil fabrics on bodice. I made two 3/4 circles and used one for front and one for back.
The result was:
quilted bra cups
Outside bodice with circular quilting. This almost made me cry by having to unpick it..more than a few times.
close up on the stitching..
A closer update soon with final fabric. This break will bring much brainstorming at the beach and wig making!!
