Costume College is in 2 days! I finished my bodice a few days ago but today was the first time I tried on all the pieces of my Lady Tremaine outfit: bodice, underskirt, overskirt, chemise, bra, waist cincher, bum pad, stockings, shoes, gloves, hat, veil, earrings, scarf, pin, and bracelet. I hope the AC is turned on at the hotel! I’m busy packing and doing other preparations so after CoCo I will make a full post about the outfit and other details.
So sparkly! (The bodice is hand-sewn because of the sequins).
The back closes with a separating zipper. I was worried about having hooks and eyes snag on the sequins, so a friend had the genius idea of using a jacket zipper that pulls apart! The waist has some extra room in it because the two velvet waistbands for the skirts are rather thick. (The outer skirt has 2 layers of organza and 2 layers of satin pleated into the waistband, which makes it extra bulky).
And an in-progress shot:
See you at Costume College!
Absolutely fantastic! How is the adhesion of the flocking working out on the sequins? Did you have any problems with peeling?
Thanks Cindy! It didn’t stick as smoothly as the flocking on the sequins since the surface was bumpy, but they are sticking. Some places I had to go over with the iron a second time, especially the edges. I haven’t worn it yet except to try it on so I hope it survives the stress test!
WHAT??????!!!! That was all the photos you are sharing! That’s it! I am never speaking to you again!!!
Hahahaha…ok, I’m only half way teasing. I soooooooo cannot WAIT to see your whole outfit on you! I am sure you are going to knock their socks off! Le Swooooon!!! You have done such a fabulous job on this project and I can’t believe all the things you have to wear with it! Now I wish I was going to Coco!!!
Aw thanks Gina! Don’t worry, I put so much work into this I’ll likely wear it again for next CoCo. I have some friends who want to dress as the stepsisters!
Oh what fun that would be!!!! Well, I know you are going to have a great time at this year’s coco!!!!
This is turning out so nicely! I’m sad I won’t get to see it in person. How are you cutting out your flowers? I’ve never heard of that flocking stuff before but now I want to put it on everything!
Thanks Sahrye! I’m cutting the flowers using a Silhouette Portrait machine. It’s the smaller version of the Cameo machine and has a 9 inch width. If you need larger stuff the Cameo is 12 inches I believe.
Looks wonderful so far; I can’t wait to see the photos of the full ensemble!
Thank you Ellie! I am going to travel home today and when I get everything unpacked and photos sorted I will make many posts about Costume College!
So loved seeing it in person!
Thanks Jennifer! It was lovely to see you too!

Hi! Lovely job!!! I was wondering where did you get the floral design for the entire dress.. I work with Dolls and I am trying to recreate this dress in miniature version. Did you make them yourself or did you find them somewhere.. Also, what did you used to cut them so perfectly? Thanks!
Hi Erika, I used a Silhouette machine to cut the floral appliqués out of heat transfer flocking. I downloaded floral designs and edited them using the Silhouette software. You can also draw designs using the software to make them look more like the movie version.
Thabk you so much for the info! 😍
You’re welcome! I hope your doll turns out great!
