I made 4 outfits for the WGT, a German Gothic festival =)

For the first one I made a bodice and a skirt - the skirt is made of several fabric and lace scraps and I love how it turned out. The bodice was a quick-and-dirty project and turned out okay...ish.



The next one is another quick and dirty project: the rose skirt was made by gathering and draping the fabric until I liked it. The corset and cage skirt are handmade, but a bit older.




My favorite piece is the polka dots dress because it's so comfortable and plain enough to wear it at work, too.



The last one was so much work, but I'm not really happy with it. I wanted to wear the skirt and corset (made of fabric and lace scraps) with a matching collar and a different top, but in the morning it was raining so hard that I decided to change things a bit. Needless to say the weather turned out great in the afternoon xD


This is the collar:


And because it was so much work: here are a few progress pictures of the scrap outfit. I used this technique Smiley

These are all wonderful, but I *adore* the scrap skirt & corset. I can only imagine how much work went into that!

Wow, awesome work! I can't even imagine the work that must have gone into everything, but looks like everything turned out great. Love the look of the scrappy corset and skirt! Looks like all the work paid off gorgeously. Cheesy
