1950's dress - update 4 - the crinoline
Dress so far
So this morning I made my petticoat/crinoline to make the skirt stick out. I did originally intend to use the online pattern...but in a sort out I came across an old white linen tiered skirt with elastic waist and thought Ii might cannibalize the material to save me work.
You can see I even left the little loops on for hanging it on a coathanger.
And Here it Is at work..not quite sticky outy enough but I'm working on that....
