I didn't think it was going to be as tedius to make this as it is x_x So many details and trying to work out the pieces you don't even see under the skirt to make it look right...
I've lost count of the number of hours it has taken to complete but I started it in October and worked on it every day until I finally finished it in the beginning of February.
it is all handsewn and hand painted. This is the first time I've made a dress like this so it has been a big learning process. I made the hoop skirt and the petticoats, the bloomers and the bustles underneath this monster as well.
