autoplay

This is a very important part of the petticoat making process, which I like to call the twirl test.  I think it passed. 

I’m not thrilled with how this turned out because my measurements didn’t quite line up and I used a cheap netting from joanns so it has a habit of deflating. But it’s comfortable and fun to wear! Very lightweight and great for spinning. 

This will be worn underneath a short Cinderella inspired dress. It’s made from six layers of netting with organza and lamé ruffles. 

I wrote a super long blog post about making it, which is posted here

Weirdly the photos of this didn’t turn out, but the video did. So here is a little clip from that video!

This is my finished bonnet and Regency ensemble. It’s kind of finished, I thought it was done but after trying the whole thing on I see changes I want to make to every piece (especially the wig!). I’ll try to get photos of the updated version soon.

But even without being fixed up, i’m pretty happy with this. I like how the dress and accessories look, it’s well constructed, and it looks pretty cute all together!

I haven’t blogged or posted progress photos of the dress, but a write up on how I made the bonnet is here.

DEAR TUMBLR USERS WHO HAVE MUSIC PLAYERS ON THEIR BLOGS

FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD IN THE WORLD

PLEASE DISABLE AUTOPLAY ON YOUR MUSIC PLAYERS.

I KNOW I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO NEARLY HAS A HEART ATTACK AT SUDDEN NOISES.

SUDDEN, LOUD, AND/OR UNEXPECTED NOISES CAN TRIGGER A LOT OF PEOPLE.

SO PLEASE DISABLE AUTOPLAY. NOT JUST FOR AN EASILY SCARED LITTLE COWARD LIKE ME, BUT FOR ANYONE AND EVERYONE WHO COULD BE HIGHLY TRIGGERED BY SUDDEN AND UNEXPECTED NOISES.
