I have finished the Elizabethan tutu! and my, it is gorgeous. Almost exactly as I’d hoped it would be. I’d like to have done it with a little less slapdash style – doing a proper muslin first, then sewing it with the care that kind of pattern rates – but that would have taken me a good week and I had more like a day and a half. Nonetheless it turned out great, and I am very happy. I still need to hem the bottom edge, but other than that it’s complete.
Here is a sneak peek at it; the photo entirely fails to do it justice, but if it weren’t such a bad photo I wouldn’t be posting it.
And now, enough timewasting: on to the next one! I still have to do one entire tutu (purple top and iridescent maroon/blue), finish up putting feathers on the peacock-feather tutu, embellish the white tutu, and finish the armholes of the champagne tutu. I also need to make a gold tutu-bottom and a black tutu-bottom. It’s looking like I’ll be taking Friday off as well.
