That wasn’t actually the silence of me not doing any sewing – I got plenty done over Easter, and I even wrote a post about it. I just didn’t post it, because I wrote it at work, and my photos were at home. Thinking I’d post it from home, though, clearly didn’t work out. Might as well just post it now…


Once I’d finished getting my pleats pinned in place, I had a quick experiment with what setting method would make the nicest pleats on this fabric. Four wee samples later, I had two samples with very nice pleats, and a decision that I spent a few days being annoyingly indecisive over. I ended up going for the more crisp-but-fluid, rather than crisp-but-slightly-stiff pleat – I can always attack it again if I change my mind when more of the outfit is finished. I sewed the waistband in a few nights ago, and the pleated ruffle last night.

The underskirt now only needs a fastener at the waist, the ties for the skirt, and the velvet ribbon trim, and it’s finished. I’m going to abandon it for a bit now, though, and start work on the overskirt instead. Which, from past experience, should be strangely fast for such a complicated looking beastie – with the exception of even more pleating! XD 
 
I'll post the photos seperately, when I remember. ^^
