The dress is going great. I have most of the bodice done and will put the sleeves on soon. From there it is all gathers. Lots and lots of gathers. But that is basically all you do on the skirt. then I put it together. I will post a picture of me in the dress when it is finished.
I have not started the recreation of the green dress, but we did get the fabric. The fabric is a sparkly, stretchy, red stuff. I have not got fabric for the sash yet. Stay tuned for progress!
