Binding the Bodice

With the sleeves attached the bodice is close to finished. Up next, adding binding to conceal the raw edges. Before starting I gave the bodice a good press using a press cloth. Since I want the binding to be hidden on the inside of… Continue Reading “Binding the Bodice”

Bodice & Sleeves

Once the boning was inserted into the casings there were just a few more steps to complete. The first thing I did was to stitch across the bottom of each casing with a 5/8 inch seam allowance. This was to make sure that the… Continue Reading “Bodice & Sleeves”

Additional Godets – Layer 4.5

After staring at my petticoat for quite some time I felt like it was still a bit unbalanced. This probably could have been avoided if I had made the hoop myself, but since I chose not to, I felt like this was something I… Continue Reading “Additional Godets – Layer 4.5”

Petticoat Layer 5

Here it is! The next step to the Belle/Cinderella cosplay tutorial. We are on layer 5 of the petticoat. This layer is constructed differently than the previous layers. Here was the petticoat after Layer 4. Layer 5 is a simple circle skirt with a… Continue Reading “Petticoat Layer 5”
