Attaching the Lace

Once I had a good idea for how to drape the lace, it was time to attach it. As I was beginning this process, I decided I wanted all of the yellow layers of the skirt to be connected, and all of the white… Continue Reading “Attaching the Lace”

The Underskirt – Part 2

With the 3 underskirts constructed I wanted to see what they looked like over top of the petticoat. This was the result. I cut the circle skirts too long on purpose, as I didn’t want to have to worry about the possibility of them… Continue Reading “The Underskirt – Part 2”

Beginning the Underskirt

With the petticoat done it is time to start thinking of the dress itself. If you are making a Cinderella dress up next are circle skirts! Since I am mimicking that style for my Belle dress, I will be doing the same. The first… Continue Reading “Beginning the Underskirt”

Petticoat Measurement & Yardage Summary

To review making the petticoat I thought it might be helpful to summarize the dimensions and amount of fabric used. The yardage used is approximate. The Casa Organza fabric was purchased online at Joann+ for $1.27 per yard. (40 yards had to be purchased… Continue Reading “Petticoat Measurement & Yardage Summary”

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”

The Layer 3 godets were added in the same manner as the Layer 2, except, due to the bustle, the back godets are lower on the petticoat than those on the front. It’s so shiny! One thing that I noticed occurred on this layer,… Continue Reading “Assembling Petticoat Layers 3 & 4”

Adding a Bustle

When I began this project I wasn’t planning to add a bustle. I thought I would be satisfied without one, but after consideration I determined that I wanted one after all. So, before applying the 3rd and 4th layers of the petticoat, I decided… Continue Reading “Adding a Bustle”

Petticoat: Cutting Layers 3 & 4

Now that the 2nd layer is complete and attached it is time to move on to Layers 3 and 4. Layers 3 and 4 are constructed in the same manner as Layer 2, using godets. These layers will be placed higher up on the… Continue Reading “Petticoat: Cutting Layers 3 & 4”

Petticoat Layer 2: Attaching the Godets

It’s time to attache the godets to the first layer of the petticoat. First, I positioned the ring of godets around the petticoat and pinned them in place. It took a bit of repositioning to get them to lay the way I wanted them… Continue Reading “Petticoat Layer 2: Attaching the Godets”
