- I watched Flash Gordon, which has fancy evil troopers with asian style
- I had some Asian inspired Fabric which I bought because it was cheap (1.99 Euro per meter, how could I resist?)
- Sintra asked me again to help her with Simplicity pattern 1819. We tried it before, but did not pull it through last time...
To try if I got it right before phoning Sintra, I cut the pattern and started to put it together. When it worked, I called her and she came around to work on her bustle. Unfortunately, we need to work on her bustle again because the fabric was misbehaving. But we will meet again on Saturday to finish it off!
This was my bustle:
As you can see, I changed some things. The zipper was set into the side seam instead of the back, The underskirt is much shorter to show off my pretty legs! ;) And the back poof was strange when I sewed it the way the pattern wanted me to, so I added some more rushing and made it a bit shorter. Generally, I'd recommend the pattern, but the sewing instructions are not the easiest, so you should have some sewing experience when you want to try it!
