Progress Pics for Motivation

Thanks to Laura UK! Your comment gave me the push that I needed!

I'll just let these unedited photos paint the thousand words I'm too exhausted to write.

The Final Muslin (back straps waiting to be redesigned)

The Corselet (ripped apart and currently being reworked)

The Bodice and the Skirt (they are still separate pieces) in peau de soie aka silk duchess satin underlined with silk organza.

The Lace

The Shoes (recently purchased to finalise dress length)


I enjoyed hand basting immensely. It was very relaxing and Scampi was very well-behaved that she only attempted to jump on the fabrics a few times. I was very sad when I had to unpick all the handsewing. I did as much handsewing as I could but procratinated for a couple of weeks when I finally had to sew by machine.

Of course, what's a sewing post without pic of Scampi.
