Working on a Meg Degas costume. Does anyone have any idea how the closure on the skirt works? Is it a waistband/snap button/zipper combo? Or is it actually elastic? From the pictures I've seen, it could go either way.

It's an elastic band with hooks and eyes and one snap.

I've got no time to work on the wishing dress since I'm working on a red victorian dress for a special event, but here's how the dress looks like for the moment ^^' I know, it has not changed a lot Razz

I've got all the trims and appliqués, I can say that now I've got everything at home to finish it Smile

even if I've made a corset to were with this dress, it looks already nice without it Very Happy

It is indeed looking gorgeous! Very Happy

Seeing all you talented people making these beautiful costumes really makes me wish I'd inherited my mother's dressmaking skills.

Just put together a chatelaine for my Giry costume last night. Nothing too exciting, but it's progress. Smile



(and yes, I totally picked the Fleur-de-lys charm for obvious reasons, lol.)

Ive been on the hunt for a complete Red Death costume for some time now, and was curious if anybody knows of any talented folks who could swing one, I realize it would cost $$$ but was curious if anybody has inside info/sources on someone who has done one before, and may be up for making one in time for halloween.

The skirt is pretty much completely done. The only thing I need to do is cut a hem, but it’s something I don’t want to do until after the bodice is complete, otherwise I won’t really know how high or low that waistband is ultimately going to sit. (And my new dress form, her name is Echo. Smile )

Materials Used So Far:

7 Yards of cotton gauze
6 yards of tulle (three because I realized even if I used 20 yards, the three layers of cotton would still weigh it down too much)
6 yards of crinoline (THAT did the trick)



Waistband closure.

Nooooooow, I'm trying to drape the pattern for the bodice and I have absolutely no idea what the back panels are supposed to look like. I can't tell if it's four or six or if they curve toward the bottom. I'm also trying to figure out which panels to cut on bias. Any input you guys have would be great!

This is the pattern that made me instantly think of Meg's Degas costume (you may have to alter the back a little Laughing )
Its from pg 120 and 121 of Period Costumes for Stage and Screen 1800-1909 by Jean Hunnisett

Interesting Star Princess dress on stage in Leeds last night, a very basic version of the dress, much more like the Broadway version and definitely not the one worn in Manchester.

I'm so behind on posts. Playing catch up now.

Melly, that is spectacular. Really in awe. And wow, with it looking that good already, it doesn't matter if you have a corset or not.

Giry - Your chatelaine is going to be cool. I love stuff like this! So pretty.

Viscountess - I've seen some pics elsewhere of your Degas outfit and it is gorgeous. It's an outfit that on stage looks so simple but there's really so much to it. Always have loved it.

Those PF silver boots are cool. The wig is awesome but I could never afford it. So nicely done though.

I'm currently getting back to work on my Hannibal Slave Girl costume. Started it in 2006 so it's about time to get the crazy thing done. Crotch Tiara, here I come. lol

Me!!!!

Still got a ton of stuff to do...it's now being split up into "things that have to be done", "things that would be nice to have", and "shit that is just not gonna be done in time".

And since my time constraint wasn't severe enough, I dismantled my mask because the fit was annoying me. For those of you who saw it at Fans Week, remember how the jaw didn't work quite right? It's because when I assembled it, I accidentally secured it rotated too far forward such that my chin wasn't catching the inside of the jaw properly. I aim to fix that very shortly. And with the mask apart, I may have time for a quick redo of the paint job. All this while still having to assemble the sleeves (don't even know if the pattern works yet), attach peplums, construct waist bows (brocades are cut; need to stitch them together, cut out lace, attach trim and buttons...), finish tassels for cape, make a few masks for bears, ship my hat out...I sure hope I don't leave anything behind... Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

Just an update on my Giry cape as of right now. Still have to attach more beaded fringe to the other side of the front, and the back, and then added beaded appliques to the body (all hand-stitched, mind you...). Woohoo! Very Happy

Raising my hand with those trying to finish costume. No wait! We WILL finish our costumes!

Madame Giry, that cape looks lovely. It's going to look so great with the whole costume.

Phantomfett - I have NO idea where you have the patience...

Prioritize, prioritize, prioritize. Keep the most important things on top Smile

That's how I've survived many a monster project.

I debated doing a costume (I have an awful obsession with the hat/costume worn in "wandering child"), but decided I wouldnt have time to make one that I would be happy with, but I hope to see some phans in costume!

Almost done with the Giry cape! I still have to do more tacking down of the beaded appliques, but you can get a good idea of what it will look like from these pics:





Getting excited! Very Happy
