Progress pics! (See Aubry, never say I don't deliver when you *ahem* ask!)

Let's see, so far I've done the back en fourreau pleats (twice *sigh*), assembled the bodice (minus sleeves), added panels to the skirt and begun the skirt pleating.

The pleating as gone as well as it usually does. I spent most of Sunday working on it without much to show for my effort. Razzen-franzzen!!! After doing the pleats so many times I lost tract, I finially got them to a point where I liked the look but they didn't fit the bodice. So I finally came to the conclusion that a total of three panels of fabric just wasn’t enough fullness for the look I wanted. So next step is to add more fabric to the skirt. And of course redo the pleats. *big sigh*

Thanks to Real Life (TM) and a lovely visit on Monday with Casey (happy butt wiggle) I haven't gotten back to it... hopefully tonight, definitely Friday!

The fabric is so beautiful and it looks like you are doing a great job despite the pleat troubles!

Well, regardless of the pleating woes, it still looks awesome.

Razzen-franzzen has to be one of the coolest expressions I've ever heard.

It looks gorgeous! What a pretty shade of red. :) Hopefully the pleats will be more compliant when you come back to them.
