I’m still recovering from eye surgery so this post will be brief. I’ll post more pictures and construction details when I get back from Costume College.
Here is a quick look at the bodice! I can’t see well enough to make a lot of tiny hand-sewn eyelets in the back, so someone will have to sew me into my dress before the Gala.
I already packed my petticoats and bum roll so I don’t have a mounted picture of the skirt. I cartridge-pleated it, left the front part that goes under the center bodice tab flat, and hid closures in the pleats. (I have side openings for pocket access).
My hair in its hat box looks like braaaains!
See you at Costume College!
