Het was erg veel werk om de petticoat van donkerblauwe organza (niet zichtbaar op de foto) te maken: 4 lagen met 4 banen per laag, alles met de hand gerimpeld aangezien ik (nog) geen rimpelvoet ter beschikking had.
Patroon: Burda 8174
Stof: Katoen & Organza
This dress was finished just in time for a rock 'n roll party. Just a few minutes before we had to leave home, the last adjustments on the petticoat were made.
The sewing-pattern (Burda 8174) was bought in Germany a couple of months before and I was lucky enough to find the checkered cotton (with and without little flowers) at a market. The flowery fabric was used for the top and plain one for the skirt. The only alteration was made to the skirt: I made it wider to be able to wear a petticoat underneath.
The dark-blue, 4 tiered, organza petticoat (not visible in the picture) took me ages to make, as I made 4 layers and I did not have a ruffle foot and had to ruffle all tiers by hand.
