As I'm a lazy, non-period accurate costumer, I was happy to take some advice regarding cartridge pleating the overskirt on my Elizabethan. Decorator's pleating tape! It doesn't give as clean a result as hand cartridge pleating, but I have a feeling it saved me some time (which I have very little left to finish this thing). So here's a shot of the dress in it's current state. I'm still fiddling with the trim.



The overskirt obviously isn't sewn to the underskirt yet, but it's an idea of how things will look in the end.

Oh wow! It's already gorgeous. I absolutely love those sleeves! You make me want to work on my tudor gown :D. But I have some other projects I need to finish first. Just wanted to say that the fabric is really stunning!

It's really pretty. I like the front trim on the bodice, it defines that front edge and coordinates with the forepart and sleeves very well. :)
