HELLO LOVELY PEOPLE. i hope youre doing well! :3 my names kelse. and im in college for film! Ooo gasp such wow. this is my blog for things and stuff and whatnot. i hope you like it :D its a little all over the place. apologies. i do cosplay and stuff. my cosplay tag is actually just my me tag. woops. if you ever have any questions about how i made something or if you just wana chat or if maybe you just need someone to talk to, my message box is always open :3! i think thats it. hmm. OH YEAH. always remember that you are beaUtiful. keep smiling :3
uhm. this is gonna be kinda sucky cos its after the fact but hey. alota people are asking how i did my skirt :3 so.
i started out with a 6 hoop crinoline.
then i cut open the front a bit. LEAVE THE TOP HOOP INTACT.(dont cut the wires. not yet.)also. your going to have to cut out alot more than you think because it will collapse alot. but start off small to avoid mistakes!
i then sewed on a layer. (with the extra fabric i cut out so it matched) and added a stronger and thicker hoop. i made this hoop out of a long bendy piece of plastic, but since it just wanted to push out straight again it popped out wrong. soooo. i added some metal on the edges to make it curve in correctly.
(i made yall a little diagram :3)
then judging on how much you want it to open, cut accordingly and hem the edges! (when you cut the wires, push them taunt to get a nice curve on the dress) i got something like this!
now. some people were also asking about draping. so these are some pics of what it looks like undernesath??? sorry im not more helpful.
^^this is how i pinned it. then just tack it where the pins are with some stitches!
