Good Evening Heather!

I had a chance to re-mock up the front per our previous discussion; size H except front 4 pieces are size I with DD cup. What do you think at this point? Thank you! :bounce:

Re: TV110 Fitting Help Mock up pics

Hi Heather!

The lacing is even until the bottom inch of the corset, then the lacing is closer together. I was thinking of shaving just a little off the hip seams on the back middle piece to correct this. I'll try new pieces and post new pics in the next couple of days, thank you!

Re: Reproducing Fashion Plate, TV Pattern Help

Wow Heather, that was a quick response, thank you! One more question, since I don't have enough fabric to do the entire TV208 view B, could I just use a light cotton twill for the under skirt where it won't show? I was thinking where the overskirt covers the front of the underskirt and in the back s...

Adding Ruffles to Imperial Tournure?

Good Afternoon! I'm on a serious ruffle kick right now and wanted to see if anyone had recommendations on where to place 3-4 rows of ruffles on the Imperial Tournure? The bustle is lovely as is (and doesn't need ruffles over the bones), I just want to do ruffles just 'cause. Any thoughts? Thank you!...

LM 112 View C under early bustle Trained skirts

Good Afternoon!

Would the Laughing Moon 112 view C bustle and train support fit under the early bustle trained skirts, has anyone tried it? Alternatively, would someone have a recommendation on what TV patterns I could modify to get a similar train support bustle? Thank you!

Re: What should I make with this fabric?

Thank you for the suggestion Elensari! I am really into late Victorian/Belle Epoche right now, I like the suggestion to use the striped fabric as a trim on the skirt :) . Back to the sketch pad!
