Petticoat Progressions

Just a small update on the goings on of my sewing room: things are progressing. Not overly quickly, but I am in fact getting things done. I managed to peacefully and happily sew the waist band into the petticoat – with a few of my own improvisations. I prefer a tie-back rather than hook and eye closures (I just never trust the things to stay closed) so I left the ends of the waistband open and fed a fabric tie through. Success.

The only thing left to do on the petticoat is the lace trim along the bottom. Since I am without a dress form or mannequin, I had to get everything on to determine the perfect finished length (gotta cover that hoop skirt), then try to pin it in place like a tin man with my corset all tied up.

Hilarious sidenote here – while Tyler was being a good sport and taking my photo, my dog Perry was hiding under my skirts.
