Rococo undergarments

Okay I received the undergarments back from being assessed and here they are on one of our dummies. (please note the corset doesn't look too good on a dummy because it changes a persons shape drastically when worn and dummies don't squish)

from the side

now with the panniers and petticoat, the panniers have 18 meters of string steel in them and the petticoat needed only 12meters on fabric.

here it is from the side

and here is the close up on the pin tucks I had to do because I am a bit of a shorty :)

Thank you for looking I hope to put up my design for my dress soon :)

Rococo costume update ( CORSET )

So here is where I am up to with the corset, I have the binding on all the bones in and all the cording is in.

And now I have started the flossing

these will become more elaborate

But it gives the idea of how it could look

Soon I'll be able to start on my dress, and there will be photos of that also.
