On to my second costume

Little red riding hood but like half mauled, I was thinking the scar the David gets in American werewolf in London, subtle Smiley
But 1950's style or traditional?

Was also think of getting this for the bodice and making a white top for underneath

So what do you guys think?
Cheers Fee x

Here goes long post WARNING with lots of pictures(sorry about the size!)

I'm making a victorian outfit, I have a petticoat so far and a bodice mock up...
Petticoat front and back

Bodice front and back

fabric for skirt

A corset I have that doesn't fit my bust(a bit too big)

And my boots!!

So I need help with the red skirt and the bodice, I want a longer length with a pleated flounce, like the images below...

I know I need to redraft my bodice pattern and the front, side front are simple but the side back and centre back I'm having problems with. I just can't work out how to do the pleated back part?

Also with my red skirt, my pattern is flat at the front that widens at the bottom and pleated at the back but it seems to hold the fullness of my petticoat in, is this supposed to happen?

Thanks for reading and I hope someone can help!
I also have another post about my second costume, hehe

I love Halloween, I'm so excited as I have Two events to go to, that does mean two different costumes!!

A victorian-ish get up for a screening of Nosferatu and Little red riding hood but I can't decide if it should be 1950's style(Victory rolls!!) or a kinda traditional dirndl?

I'm needing help with my victorian get up but didn't want to post a massive story(but if anyone is willing to help me I will elaborate!)

Also LuvelyCritter heres a pic of my other half as the cheshire cat Smiley

I prefer the last one, i think the subtle wound effect is much more effective and even tho this was supposed to be about halloween makeup, you are very pretty!

This will be SO helpful!

I made this gathered cotton skirt, to make it more period should I attach ruffles around the hem? I was going to do knife pleats but really don't want to do them buy hand!
(Sorry about the grubby mirror and the opening is at the front cuz I gathered it weird Roll Eyes)
Any suggestions?

They all look great!

The dresses are so damn cute! Did you draft the contour bust yourself?...It's very flattering on you!!
Excellent work!

Hi, I got felting wool from college and I'm worndering if this can be spun into yarn, I had a little look into it ages ago and I'm wondering what I would need to start.
I quiet like the idea of producing a thick yarn, would this be possible?
Could you suggest a few inexpensive things to get me started?
