And as school is almost out, I thought that I'd indulge my love of sheers and finish up my post-AP surprise project. So here it is!
|Do you think that Stephen Douglas would approve?|
I made it with my usual bodice base pattern, without swinging out the side seams (I only wanted a subtle gather) and the sleeves are double puffed. I also made a pair of detachable self-fabric undersleeves to match the original, but they don't have any closure yet so I'm not wearing them in these pictures - it's far too hot for them, anyways. I debated doing a hem facing, but decided that the fabric was too light and many originals didn't have one, anyway.

Ugh! The buttons took forever and it took me a very long time to figure out HOW to do them when the sheer was so prone to fraying and ripping. Eventually I figured out how, but not before the bottom buttonholes ended up a bit janky. At least I had a new show to watch to keep me occupied, though I feel that getting into Supernatural with finals coming up is going to be a bad idea.
In other news, I got some wool/silk blend to make a middle/lower class dress. I'm also making myself a new set of underclothes (my petti is very short, you can see,) all by hand, of course. Next time I update it'll probably be about Tennessee!
