Look!! It's an ENORMOUS skirt!



Ladies and Gentlemen...we have a skirt!!!

Ok, it's not hemmed, and as you can see by the hand clutching the back, I haven't sewed on the hook and eyes yet, but it's a SKIRT. Don't worry about the lace that seems to have folded itself up on the side...it's there, matching the other overskirt panels. I just need to iron it back down. I was very proud of my cartridge pleats (they make that huge poof in the back), but my pictures came out kinda funny, so I'll save that for another day.

Wow, after you finished the bias tape or whatever that was this really started coming together quickly. Are you going to be putting little rose thingies around the top like on the picture you have of the completed gown?

You know...I wasn't crazy about the idea of sewing fake flowers to the ballgown. I want to find something else to put onto the dress. I do need something...I need to hide the seams at the edge of each scallop. Any ideas?

You could maked ruched rosettes out of the green fabric (or the green fabric and whatever taffetta you are going to use) ...

Why not sew on the shrunken heads of your enemies?
