Finally done! And I got her to try it on last night to take some pictures. I melt!

And I'll add more pics after she goes to the faire. :-)
My little Princess...

I often have the impression that my dresses make themselves. I have to do the work, of course, but regardless of what design I have when I start a dress, it makes its own decisions about how it wants to look and thwarts any efforts I make to the contrary.
"I want THIS shoulder treatment," nope, it wants THAT so THIS won't work no matter how I try. Once I step back and accept what it wants to be, I have no more troubles putting it together.
So, Claire's little dress is finally coming together and it is much fancier than I originally intended. She now has white-on-black embroidered sleeves and forepart with watermellon shot silk trim and gold clasps up the front. The watermellon silk is sooooo lovely that I might make her an Italian bonnet of it.
And I'm trying to get ahold of a digital camera so I can upload some pictures.

A little progress on Claire's pink dress for visiting the faire. I have the skirt trimmed and the bodice sewn and turned - tiny little straps.... Haven't decided what to do for sleeves, yet. Depends on how ambitious I feel. LOL!

My Rita Skeeter fabric came in and my dvd has been viewed. Well, no where in the movie nor special features do we get to see the bottom of her skirt! I did see in the film that the back of the jacket come to a little point, and is vented from the waist, like a mini tailcoat. Very cute. I may decide to work the back of the skirt the same way because I have no idea how to finish it off. Also, it looks to me like the only part of the whole outfit that might be lined is the body of the jacket. The skirt and sleeves look to me like they're unlined just by the way the wrinkle and move. Her charmeuse might be a slightly heavier weight than mine, but I have some silk organza I may flatline it with to heft it up.

Hey [livejournal.com profile] colleency, didn't you already see the FIDM movie costume exhibit? This green suit is in there... I don't suppose you remember what the bottom half of her skirt looked like, eh? Or anyone else out there who may have been to the FIDM exhibit already?

Just a public service notice for anyone out there who may be thinking of asking any favors of me today, Claire was up all night with an earache and mommy is really cranky. :-(
