And here they are. Unfortunately, I did not get any more work done today. It was pretty much all I could do to make it to an appointment with my OB today and to the library to return a book for Kevin. After that, the couch was my friend.
But without further ado, here are the bare bones of my summer bustle skirt:
I’m hoping the train will look more impressive once it is hemmed and trimmed.
I also tried to get a close up shot of the fabric, but my camera really doesn’t like the fabric. It is a teeny tiny white, pink, and burgundy stripe with a single silver thread running through every other white stripe.
This will be my last post on this project for a while since I’m scheduled to be induced tomorrow evening. It’s actually a good stopping point, since I want to wait to trim the skirt until after I cut out the bodice and find out how much fabric I have left to play with, and I can’t cut out the bodice until I find out what my bust size will be after the babies are born. By the time I come back to this, I should be able to proceed with a lot more of the actual cutting and assembly. Yay!
Oh, and one question. I’m planning on bringing the babies to this event (if we even make it at all) and am going to make some simple white gowns for them. My original plan was to trim the gowns and bonnets according to our modern gender stereotypes, but then I had the idea to trim them to match my own outfit. The pink would be easy, but do you think people would keep mistaking my little boy for a girl if I trimmed his outfit in burgundy?
