1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / 18th Century Gown Muslin (Lots of pics!) on: December 09, 2011 10:50:37 PM


I'm currently taking an independent study costuming class and for the final project I have to drape an 18th century gown more specifically a robe la franaise!  At the beginning of the semester I asked my professor to teach me how to drape since all I knew how to do previously involved working with stretch so it didn't have to fit exactly! haha  I started the dress this past Sunday and have to finish it by next Friday, thankfully it's just the muslin though.  I hope to make the dress out of nice fabric at some point but I'm not sure since I will have no use for it and it won't even be my size  Undecided.  Anyway I'm super proud of what I've accomplished so far since this is really the first thing I've draped.  I would love some encouragement to help me get this done in time!  Enough talk, pictures now!  Sorry about the poor quality, they are from my phone.

TL;DR  My first draped project!  In-progress.


Panniers (the only part I didn't drape, made from a tute instead)!  And the initial draping for the bodice.


Completed bodice with a boned stomacher.


Back/side of the bodice.  Notice the side seams are moved back to allow the flowy back to be sewn in. Cheesy


Flowy Watteau back, you can also see the skirt which I draped later.


Detail of the pleats.  This thing eats fabric like crazy! Shocked


Skirt!  Please ignore all the excess fabric pinned to the bodice, that will disappear once I actually sew it all together. Roll Eyes  This was the hardest part to my surprise.  I had NO idea how difficult it would be to pleat all that fabric so it would lie nicely over the panniers.  At one point I actually broke down into tears of frustration after working on only one side for over an hour. Cry


Final picture with the excess fabric down so you can get a better idea of the silhouette so far.

Thanks for looking!

So my camera and I couldn't come to an agreement but my lovely swap partner sent me hers to post instead! Cheesy

I received a lovely blue box in the mail other day.  To my extreme joy I found these little guys inside!



Ten!  I am absolutely in LOVE with Ten and she got him and his fabulous hair just right even though you can't see it in the picture. Grin  Also the cutest Adipose, a TARDIS card holder, Doctor Who logo stamp, and Adipose keychain.  All of this was super cute and lo and behold there's more!



Assorted TARDIS blue goodies, the glitter in the bottle is a bunch of little hearts!  And some TARDIS stickers!

Thanks so much for everything Padfoot, I loved everything!

I received my awesome package from Padfoot!  My camera and I aren't on speaking terms at the moment though.  Hope to get pics up soon!

Argh!  Work had an emergency and called me in last minute so I couldn't reach the post office today before it closed. Sad  Box is all packaged up in my car waiting to be sent tomorrow morning!

I'm afraid I'm a bit behind on crafting too compared to everyone else.  These two weeks I'm working everyday but I'm hoping once that dies down I'll be able to put all my ideas into action! Smiley
