I think it's beautiful! I love the gathers Smiley  I haven't done a thing with my corset.  Not even trying to start that until June.  May is ~way~ to hectic for me.  Smiley

Loukr, I'm glad you pulled it out. I did figure out a few things on my skirt. I have been working on another project and am a little old to craft after work. I'm a tired old crazy cat lady after all. I love the looks, but my main fear, draping, which you do so well. I am down but not out. (Banshee war cry!)

Wow this looks like great place to learn the tattered process. I started making a vest out of coral red fabric today and it's not coming out as funky as I'd like.  This thread will give me some ideas.  Loukr yor dress looks great.

Lovesclutter, draping is the MOST fun ever! I was taught during my fashion years at college and it just.. stuck!

Hazelhoneylove, I'd love to see your vest Cheesy

dewshinesdopp - cannot wait to see you start on your corset! I can't wait to start on mine either! I've secured a photoshoot with an awesome photographer and I need 3 dresses by the end on may.. EEK!

Here's the other dress so far. It's funny, when I started, it didn't really fit me (too small!), but the more stitches I put in, the smaller it got and as I'm losing weight, it's like I'm shrinking with the dress :/ looool Anyway, here! It still needs a bunch of roses Smiley

Thank you lovely! Those roses are taking longer than I thought they would! SO I started another dress today! lol. I never finish ANYTHING, I'm so naughty! It started as a size 16 vintage floral cropped jacket thing that I bought MONTHS ago, here:


Sleeves chopped off and jacket opened up like a tabbard:


Front back and side:




I have no idea where it's going.. I just wanted to start a new one so I'm just sort of adding scraps all over the place. I like the floral-ness of the jacket so I think I'll definitely leave some on show towards the top of it. Cheesy

I admire your bravery in just plunging in and making your clothing as you feel...it gives it a very much scrappy look (I guess gibbous should be used!)...the florals are particularly romantic and beautiful...where do you find these pieces?

loukr- I love seeing your creations! They are so pretty and romantic! Great fabrics again that make me wish I didn't look like a really, really sick person in these kinds of colors. *sigh* Well, strong colors it is for me, I'm afraid- if I ever get some spare moments to work on my tiny project...

I'll get photo of it on in natural light.  It is gibbous slightly because one arm has serged ruffles the other is raw edged.  Bottom back ruffle is longer on one side than the other.  I also used contrasting white threads and let the tails show
