Made it myself if you talk about the fabric, bought one from truly victorian (ball gown bodice) for the shape ;)

Sorry to bother again. I've checked out your blog about making the BBQ dress but still have a couple of questions. My french is not the best nor am I the greatest seamstress around, so please excuse if you have already written about it in your blog:

- I've seen that you have first made a bodice from plain white cotton (?) first, then sewn the fabric with on it, did you make also a white skirt first, before sewing the actual skirt? And how I do sew a skirt like this anyway?

- I guess I would need a hoop skirt, too. Which kind of hoop would I need? I think I rather buy one than making one by myself. Seems kinda complicated

- the ruffles - it seems like you made a green seam, plus the patterned fabric plus some lace with a green ribbon band.

- which kind of corset do you recommend?

Any help is greatly appreciated :)

Hello! I'll try to answer the best I can:

- I've made a white lining first, then covered it with the BBQ fabric :)
You can make a white ruffle petticoat if you need it (I generally put one under my crinolines so you can't see through the skirt and the cage, but this one is SO big that a simple petticoat with no ruffles is better. If it's too heavy, the dress will take a 8 shape.

- I've bought mine since this one was really big. Here's mine: i1087.photobucket.com/albums/j…
It seems that it's not available anymore, but you'll find other ones, it's a 5meters one (more that 5yards).

- The ruffles: yes exactly! It's one band of fabric, something like 12 meters.

- I use the silverado corset from laughing moon. Very comfortable! made twice! :)

I hope it helps!

I've used this one from Truly Victorian: www.trulyvictorian.net/tvxcart…
I've removed the bertha and the V shape on the front. :)
