Great job. Stunning. Surprised
I'll be watching for your wig tutorial. I'm terrible with hair/wigs so I'm trying to read up on different techniques.

Your costume is stunning, Ver, even without the appliques! Smile

They were rushed (got all five done in five days) and sloppy, but everyone in our neighborhood loved them!

Going to post in the FS forum too... I'm selling my left-over moire fabric. I have 1.5 yards left which would be plenty to make the front panel and collar, maybe even a full bodice.

Haha! No, I haven't been able to bring myself to sell any of my costumes... though I don't know when I'm going to wear it again. I want to fix a few things and I need to tweak the corset so it's not so painful to wear. Problem is I need help getting into the thing!

I want to tell you again, amazing work on this! I ran up and gave you a hug at D*C when I saw you in the dress!

I'm taking January off of commission work as a birthday present to myself and I have finally picked this costume back up again! I'm working on the collar and lapels at the moment. And the hand-beading, which I do at night when the kids are in bed and I sit in front of the TV. Razz

Well, January is over so it is back to commissions, but I'm not giving up on this...I'm going to keep working on it hopefully until I have it finished! I am close to being done with the beading, and after that it should be fairly "down hill". I'll try to post up progress pictures soon.

My progress isn't going as fast as I'd like, but I AM making progress, so that's good! (I've only been working on this costume off and on since 2008!!).

Here are some progress pictures:

Beading of the drape back clasp


Drape clasps: left, right, and back. Beading is done, I just need to back them, wash away the stabilizer, and attach them to the costume. (left and right clasps are actually up-side-down in this picture..oops!)


Getting ready to hand stitch the rest of the lapel and collar to the jacket


Beading progress on the bodice insert, starting layer #2. I decided just to bead directly onto the bodice insert mostly to save time


This is where I am so far with beading layer #2


My costume (thrown on the mannequin, without the bodice insert) so far

Beautiful work!

Although this costume was cut, it is still my favorite from AOTC. Amadalia

Thank-you ladies! The major things that are holding up finishing this is all the bead work. I really can only work on it at night after the kids are in bed, so it's slow going. But, I'm getting really close to having the bodice insert finished and then I should be able to get the bodice finished up and then it's on to finishing the underskirt.
