Madwoman Progress 3

I'm still working away on this project! I have a week and a half until the hand-in, and the end is in sight!

One of the biggest problems I encountered after my previous fitting, was the size and shape of the skirt. I had made paniers and hip pads with gathered net, but something was not right. I ended up buying 10m of net and gathering it, making the largest petticoat I have ever worked with. The hardest part was holding it under the machine. But after a solid day's work, I finally got the shape I wanted.

Huge, isn't it? It feels a bit like a duvet. And I tell you, it is a mission to transport. But I am satisfied. It has a really nice trail I think, and hold's it's shape really well while walking.

I had my final fitting today also. I had a few minor issues, but that's what fittings are for, right? The main costume is really shaping up now.

Hopefully the next time I update on this project, it will be complete!
