Never have I ever......worked with silk taffeta
Never have I ever......made a Victorian Bustle Gown
So this makes perfect sense, since I have a whole month (not including work days, vacation in July, and sleeping) to make it.
Here's a sneak peak of my Costume College Gala dress.
|Not the WORST for someone who has never matched plaids|
|Because I shouldn't smoke crack before I hand sew|
So I'm going to unpick the channels and sew the boning in with casings. You know, like they said to do in the first place before I decided to be such a smarty pants.
In other news; my corset doesn't fit. I was bigger when I made it, so the lacing in the back completely meets and doesn't reduce my waist at all. I'm telling you right now that my pretty plaid bodice is NOT going to fit without some semi-tight lacing.

Never have I ever....done any of the above things. So...bottoms up!
