hooped things
The pannier are done! Unless I decide I really to need a ruffle at the bottom that is. I'm still pondering. To sum up it was very simple and straightforward but boring and pretty time consuming to make. My hands are sore from cutting and inserting all the boning. I'm icing one wrist as I type... ice is such a wonderful thing...

Right now I'm thinking the pannier look too big but then it could just be that my room is too small. I actually had to rearrange my furniture a little so Narcissa could model them. This is going to be an interesting project to work on!

Next up, the under petticoat - otherwise know as the toile for the outer petticoat...

And I had an awful time with the too small room. Oops. The first pictures I couldn't even arrange the skirt correctly :)

Yes, this is a project that really needs a proper sewing room!
