Gala Nocturna 2014 - Underskirt

And on to the first sewn and finished piece for Gala Nocturna! I made a simple layered skirt as my underskirt as the fabric I originally bought as a draping fabric lost all its body when I washed it. Bummer...

But I made pretty rolled hems (with my sewing machine, I'm certainly not seaming more than 20m per hand!) and ruffled with my serger:

I made a simply 6 part skirt which was 50cm wider than my crinoline (my crinoline is 3,5m wide, so the skirt is 4m) from some dark grey cotton in my stash. I simply sewed the layers on with the machine:

As you can see, I made yet another elastic waistline. Screw historically correct, I like to eat and move! ^^ I spent a lot of time sewing rounds and rounds of layers. Neisella always includes some d-rings to have the possibility to add a removable purse. I copied that:

I think it looks rather unimpressive, but when you add the crinoline -boom!
