UPDATED nearly final Dickens - piece by piece... L
I need this finished soon. I am attending the Dicken's Faire in about 5 days and wanted something period accurate. Not that a zipper is period accurate (neither is flashing one's chest).
I plan to post a picture of me, wearing this. Assuming I remember to take a picture.
Last night I made sleeves. I also decided to modify my skirt just a little. I'll post a picture when I figure it out.
Robin points out that I am, yet again, being very understated. Yeesh! Clearly I just don't get it. I'll just have to put it all together and see if I can pull out something nice. Hopefully the skirt and bodice will compensate for the sleeves. No WAY am I taking them apart to add stuff. I'm also a little concerned about the plaid showing thru the lining. But I don't think it will be that noticeable. For the record, I think the bright royal blue is quite striking.
That's it for now. Hope to cut the back of the bodice tonight, and maybe mess around with the skirt.
