Applying the Bertha



Tonight I pleated and assembled the bertha for the neckline of the bodice. I have a picture of it pinned onto the bodice (I was making sure the pleats were straight), but it's not actually attached to the bodice yet. I have to tack the pleats into place, apply bias tape along the bottom raw edge, add the white pearl trim to the bottom edge, and then finally attach it to the bodice. Still, we're definitely into the home stretch. Everything from here out is just finished up the details.Posted by Hello

Ooooh the bertha thing looks nice! The color is more accurate in which picture?

V - I'm recalling the fabric as a very deep olive green, almost tending towards hunter green, with a really nice sheen to it - neither picture is really true to color but the left one is a little better... It really looks delicious in person :)

Kthx, Anna.
Hopefully there will be some pictures of the seamstress in this dress in daylight when it's done...

Oh Yes...you know me...I LOVE getting out and showing off the dress. I'll post all kinds of nice photos. :) And Anna is right...the picture to the left is the more accurage color. Sorry - no progress made today. I was busy with homework. :)
