|Please don't look at my un-make-uped face, please.|
- I need to create a simple chemise to go under the bodiced petticoat so that the petticoat doesn't show through (see closeup below).
- I need to press the rolled hems on the bodice and sleeves so they sit properly. I really hope this eliminates the funkiness you see in the picture below.
I need to hem the bottom of the petticoat and dress. For some reason the petticoat is longer in front than the back. I wonder if I sewed it on backwards? I am wondering if I should cord the petticoat at all to give it some body.
- I also would LIKE to create a spencer, but since I have a 1940s dress and a 1920s dress on my docket, this may not happen after all.
|I foresee some craziness in trying to get the chemise to be exactly the right shape, but we'll see how it goes.|
