Pictures of my gown from Costume College this last weekend, worn to the Fantasy Tea.
Had so much fun, am already signed up for next year. Who's with me?

Your pictures don't seem to be working... can you post a link to them instead, maybe? A lot of picture storage sites don't allow you to link directly to the picture from other pages (because you can't see their advertisements then!).

And they're both giving me errors :( Says
"Error

gpg10.bc.scd.yahoo.com:GROUP_CHECK "

Whatever that means. I sent you a private message :).

That is awesome, Vanessa! Which skirt patterns did you use? I'm always interested in that.

Did you lengthen the back of the overskirt? It looks much longer in your pictures than I expected it to from the pattern drawing.

Yep. Not sure I liked it that long. Think I need more oomph in the skirt underneath. Am going to put together 108 and see if that helps. If not, may bustle up the back even more. Dunno. What do you think?

I don't know about more oomph, but I'd probably shorten the back of the overskirt until it hit about midway on the flounce of the underskirt. I'd probably do it by taking a pleat on either side of the back piece, right up near the pleating for the front so you don't lose the nice flat line of the side trim, and then put another pouf in the center back. But then, I haven't made one, so who knows :). Heather would probably have better advice.

Or you could take the trim off, cut off 4 or 6 inches, and put the trim back on :). Would probably have the same effect. I think when the overskirt is shorter it will look more balanced and you may find that you don't need more oomph.
