SO I have hand sewn the skirt to the bodice and shoulder straps to the bodice as well. I found the gold and red braid I laying around and decided it would make a perfect addition. My questions now are what color under skirt looks best. I have a gold one that is made up of a gold piece of crushed panne velvet overlaid with gold organza I also thought of just doing a red the same color as the dress. Any opinions?

So I did get some done today, The bodice and sleeves are all ready for hand sewing. The Overskirt is as well. I am so excited for this dress. The Sleeves will be detachable and I have plans for two more sets of sleeves that will go with this dress too.

So I know it's only an unfinished bodice but I have the overskirt sewn together as well but I bummed up my knee so I can't do as much. I made the front really stiff by putting a painting stir stick down the center, sewn in. The Dress will all be the dark red and I hope to do some really fun extensive beading all over the front bodice piece. I have a black and Creme one that I hope to start soon as well.

I Made some waist cinchers and one bodice yesterday and today it's 11am and I have done three. Hopefully I can bust out the last four and some more waist cinchers by the end of the day. Mind you That the pictures are showing unlaced cinchers and corsets. Use the imagination.

At last the Dress is Finished and this is me at the RenFaire this past weekend. I was concerned about the hem, that it would be too short or too long, well it was absolutely perfect. I have to say i am very pleased with the way it all turned out. My Friend Marilyn made the hat and Snood to match and I absolutely adorn it. Thanks everyone who helped or added something to my outfit.

I have the back all laced up now, the pearls and trim hand sewn on and the sleeves are attached but I am working on re enforcing them to make sure they stay secure. I think I have figured out the farthingale issue and hopefully will have it finished this week for the talent audition.
