Ready for my close-up...

Ready for my close-up... - Original design by Charlotte Whatley, for the Costume-Con 27 Future Fashion Folio. - Stinging Stunning Steampunk Polonaise
Having seen a Jean Harlow movie not long ago I found myself doing all these 'movie star' poses. LOL

All those little satin bands were quilted, then sewn into tubes, then turned (I never want to turn satin tubes again!) then hand-sewed in place along with the hand-ruffled lace trim. I want to adjust the lace a bit as it had a tendency to floof a bit too randomly IMO. Added pintucks to the sleeves (not in the original design sketch) just coz I love pintucks. XD

Crown is made by me; you can see similar stuff at my jewellery site: http://magpie.sarcasm-hime.net
