I have almost completed the overdress of this outfit. I’ve added some delicate braid trim to the waistline between skirt and bodice. It accents nicely and gives a more finished look. The skirt is of course supposed to be rough around the edges. All the more reason to have everything else clean finished!
I added a little embellishment at the low apex of the bodice :o)
I ordered up some tiny little eyelets and now I had a great place to use them! I set about installing them on the back of this corset shaped bodice…
I’m putting these eyelets on by hand with a variety of incorrect tools, lol! I haven’t been able to find an eyelet setter small enough yet for these, but I’ll keep looking!
They’re so dang tiny that the cording I was going to use is too thick! I knew these were small, but sheesh :o/ so I had to come up with something else. I tried thick gold metallic thread/narrow cord. I didn’t like how long the cord needed to be in order to open the overdress up enough to slip over Syb’s hips, and it was too insubstantial looking that I decided to try something else.
After trying a variety of cords, cord lengths etc. etc. and wound up with this as the winning option!
I like this. The ribbon is substantial enough looking and the colour is a nice complement to the floral and looks great with the yellow silk too!
So here’s my Trapeze modeling the outfit so far for me :o)
I have a couple of ideas for her footwear and what will go on her head too. I’m moving slowly, but I am almost finished.
Thanks as always for reading and have a great evening!
