August 2011

Yay! The butterfly train is done. This is worn over a regular skirt (bustled or natural form) instead of an overskirt, and with any of the Victorian bodices. It is fully lined in black satin.

I have no idea what I was thinking. This is so far out of my normal set of sewing skills. Maybe that was part of the allure. I don't even know what would make a rational person say, hey, I'll make a tutu! I have nowhere to wear it to, and nowhere to even store it, but I need a tutu! NEED! It started the way most of my project ideas started... a glimpse of an image or word that catches my eye, and leads me on a path of research. Sometimes I end up where I started, sometimes I end up in a different century altogether.
