Hello! Sorry for the skip on Tuesday’s post. I find myself swamped with comic work lately that its hard to keep up this week.
I did however manage to make a chemise for the Amidala Senate Gown however. I knew this was going to take a long time to make each piece but I’m still excited! Also all of the Kylo Ren pieces are coming together as well!
Surprisingly, this was a lot like making the hoop skirt! And super easy as well! It came together incredibly fast!
Always start with cutting out your pattern. The only hitch I saw was that I couldn’t find the gusset pattern with this, but it’s more than likely that one of my cats stole it. So I won’t worry too much. It’s just a square afterall 🙂
Then like the hoop skirt, you sew the sides together on the front and back. And also like the hoop skirt I finished the edges with pinking shears 🙂
So far so good! Then I just added the gusset to the sleeve like this. Gussets are adding at moving parts of clothing that that have a lot of motion. i.e. crotch, armpit etc. They really help with everything if you can manage to put them in correctly!
That was pretty easy 🙂
I tried it on under the hoop skirt already as well so you can see how it’s supposed to look!
Adding the facing to the chemise was another story. I was having such a hard time because my fabric was thin and my interfacing was slightly stretchy, I didn’t manage to get photos of that while I was putting it in because it didn’t turn out the prettiest and I was getting frustrated. But! Luckily no one will be seeing this part of the costume so function is everything 🙂
Thank you so much for tuning in! I’ll be making the bum roll next, then the corset which I’m super excited to start. Hope everyone has a great day!
