I have to wear a bra underneath it, to get the shape and cleavage. If I dont, the girls will just slide down, and will be very uncomfy. I am wonderi...

Re: tv296 ripple skirt - step 9

Thank you heather, it makes a little bit more sense now.

Another question, with step 6 sewing it to the waistband.
With the placket. You fold it in? It says at the middle of the pleat, but mine goes in further. Is that right?

I am working on several dress at this moment (a 1895 dress, and a robe a l'anglaise) but the focus is on my 1830 gown, with a corded petticoat and a bonnet. I am using the truly victorian 455 I made my own corded petticoat! It is too ugly to see daylight, and should be covered with a petticoat reall...

Re: french bodice and parisian skirt

Thanks for the comments!

I made the hair with fake (kanelon) hair over wire. I make a lot of hair pieces, the curls and the back on the first 2 pictures are fake too. I even made a crown, and horns with fake hair

Re: tv455 i am lost

Thanks alot again, I am so happy with your help.
At the back, its loose at the waist, not tight on my body. But i think i am worrying too much about the fit.

So i dont need to cut a smaller front piece? Only adjusting the armholes
