Good news, Cinderella as is right now could be worn (and hopefully recognized), though I am looking forward to completing the over dress & bodice to break up the
bleh off-white color.
Wednesday, October 21st
Blouse: Done! So I went to put in the sleeves, and I realized I had made two rights and no left. Le sigh...pauses for a moment and reaches for the seam ripper...why does this always happen to me?
|Ripping away the evidence...|
|And, finally, we have a shirt! Wish I had thought to measure first,|
because it turned out a little too big, oh well, next time.
Red Petticoat: Finished! Easy enough after I tamed the directional pleats! Thank goodness for the divide and conquer method. I made, well I'm not really sure what they're called, let's say "stacked" or "doubled" knife pleats.
|Pleats ready to be hand basted.|
|Just look at those directional pleats, score!|
|Finished red petticoat!|
|Close up of the patches.|
|Side back of skirt.|
Apron: Completed! Instead of just gathering the apron's skirt and hiding the stitching under the band, I thought it would look cool to extend the gathers...I liked the result! What about you?
|Gathered panel & pressed apron ties.|
|Close up of the gathers.|
|Ta da, the finished apron! Notice the 3" hem.|
|I think I may have gone a little too patch happy...|
Definitely still needs the grey over dress & black bodice! Also, some warm woolen accessories and a coif to complete the look.

Three days down, three more to go! We're half way there, folks!
