I lost a lot of time this week because of an unplanned trip to the ER, but I still hope to have this costume finished in time to wear it to the costume ball I'm going to for New Years'.
(Still have horrid hoop show-through, I need to make a petticoat)
I took the underskirt apart to install the swagging. Here is one piece all cut, gathered, and pinned ready to be sewn down. I may re-do the center bit because I don't like how it's not centered all the way up.
