Been busy creating the waterfall drapery for the back of the skirt from calico! Im so pleased at how its turned out as I didn’t have a clue what to do! But thanks to http://articles.glittersweet.com/howto/victorian/waterfall.htm for her tutorial! Helped so much! Hopefully this weekend I’ll be able to buy some more fabric and get on with it!!
Glad it helped :) My first try was sort of winged but then I was determined to find a simpler solution :) I was going to rearrange my website (I had to uninstall wordpress as my host PHP thing clashed and my site totally broke ;) ) but I may just leave the html pages as they are for a while :) Hopefully with some additions soon to the articles sections :) I have a guide on latex application to upload. Not a step by step as such but what to remember when thinking about making or wearing the things.
And I also have a guide to get up there on fitting a victorian bodice… it is so counter to modern fitting. I have yet to see a major company use them, even in amazing period dramas.
