My first time making a pleated skirt, or baring my midriff. Also the first time employing large amounts of rhinestones. Blouse is finished, but un-embellished.
7/18/2011 Decided not to use practice blouse, and bought 2 yards of ivory satin, along with rhinestones- billed at about $50.
7/25/2011 Top and skirt are sewn- ribbon added to blouse, and onto skirt before pleating.
7/29/2011 Headband, top, skirt all embellished. An old headscarf was salvaged for the tie.
8/26/2011 Got new fishnet tights- wig came in the mail.
Great picture of the outfit in action: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jennkr/6118428359/
