So as you may recall, I added an extra width of fabric to the polonaise overskirt to make it nice and floufy. I totally failed at getting it pleated onto the bodice. Epic fail. I had to remove the extra panel and just go with the original width to make it fit. *hangs head* I spent hours on this and wasted a whole sewing day, and since I barely have time left to begin with, this makes me frustrated. So I hand sewed the skirt to the bodice and it looks fine (though my stitching is really bad!).

Left to do on the poloniase:

Hem overskirt

make and attach buttons and loops (acquire cream ribbon for loops?)

sew on hooks and bars

sew down neckline trim

make and sew down sleeve and cf bodice trim

oh yeah, stitch pinned sleeve hem

In 2009, I'd really like to make...

bustle gown to go with new beaded capelet

Regency open robe

Regency gown to go under half robe

Titanic Boarding Suit

recover at least one of my antique parasol frames

Another Natural Form era gown

TV bustle coat

New Steampunk ensemble for 2009 saloncon. Perhaps Edwardian with motoring jacket and goggles. Any ideas for me?

Finally make new Elizabethan from that green silk

Bustle skirt and over skirt from a million yards of black tulle

finish black tiered lace trumpet skirt

perhaps take a stab at making a white 18th c corset to go under Chemise gown. I didn't love the half stays under it last year.

and I need to come up with something for Convergence on the Queen Mary. I might buy a '20's dress instead of making one. But, I have to book a room first!!
