Yay skirts! Just pinned in place, still needs pressing and hemming and all that good stuff.

And my blathering on about patterning it can be found here.

I spend yesterday figuring out just how much yardage I had, and if it was enough to cut the skirt with a train.

Turns out I had just enough velvet and lining fabric for it.

So today I spent cutting the lining and velvet and then serging all the edges save the hem. Tomorrow shall be the sewing of it, which means I should start winding the bobbins now as I hate doing that part.

I still need to draft the sleeve pattern too, hmmm.

*edit* It would be nice if I stopped hitting return on the laptop and publishing the entry before I finish typing. This is the inner structure for the "Pisa" Gown. No boning in it just layers of drill, muslin, buckram and quilt batting. A more detailed write up is over on the website.

Bodice mock up, I don't have the center back pinned so getting a few wrinkles on the side from it, but most I'm most concerned with getting the point right. The funeral dress in PoF has the point coming down 5 inches from the waist, which on my frame is huge, and in the test dress I made (and still need to hem) it gave it a very very late period feel. I folded the bottom seam allowances under so that should be where it all hits.
