On the stand
At this stage a lot of the finishings has been added. I bias bound the chiffon hem with the pink poly satin from the dress. At this point, things got fairly stressful as my deadline was onto of me and there were still lots of little finishings to be done. As a temporary quick fix I attached the sleeves so the actress could wear it for dress rehearsal. She didn’t wear it in the end which offered me the chance to finish it with the additional finishes that the costume required. Moreover, the skirt and bodice were still separates and all need to be attached to the waistband of my panniers.
