Miss Celia those are some of the most wonderful gibbous skirts I have ever seen!  Very charming all around... Grin

Little miss celia, the bustle and underskirt are gorgeous. They really look at home in the forest too. Beautiful work!

thanks everyone for your lovely comments. yes some of the dog walkers did look a little confused seeing me my other half the dog and the dress form there on the path! I tried to get one of them to model for me, but I think her dogs would have got in the way (she had a bout 5!)
The skirt wouldn't have been the way it was without woodland faerie's input, so if you're reading this, thanks and I hope you work things out soon x

Little miss celia, they're both beautiful! This whole gallery is inspiring! If i'd have been part of the swap i would have never finished, adding bits and taking away it'd be like the most evil art project never to be finished Wink so it's amazing you guys have all made beautiful garments!

Finally some pictures!

It's a shame that the intricacies and detail of this dress cannot be fully expressed via photo because it is trully incredible! But hopefully these pictures will do it a bit of justice.

This is one of my favorite scraps. Its a lovely color and the palm print is really interesting. Theres bits and pieces of it in other places too.

This is the underskirt. It is just as detailed and beautiful as the overdress part. It has hand sewed jewels, beads and trinkets attached and is made of old lace, embroidered fabrics and delicate beautiful scraps. I would wear it all by itself if I could! The way it attaches is equally ingenious. It buttons through to the front so that you can see all the different mismatched buttons all the way around.

This little bead is sandwitched between layers and is among many treasures hidden this way!

Both the straps have awesome buttons! one is a little pin that says edmonton. THATS WHERE I LIVE! Such a lovely personal detail.

Ok, that was probably huge and long but it deserves all that space!

Thanks so so much again Wulf!
