Didn’t get to setting in the sleeves as the collar took longer than I hoped, however I made progress. Sewed in by hand eventually. All the lining is now completed and some of the buttons are also in place.

Lining is whipped in the back and one half of the front is done. Showing the pleats here. Hemming can only be done after one final fitting.

Over half way there with the blue buttons! Got 19/28 large, 6/10 small embroidered and 3/7 plain ones done. Now I have to add the French Knots to the rest and make them up.
My goodness they certainly loved them buttons back in the day!

Repleating the skirt as it needed some fabric shifting to the back now the back will be made up of triangles. 
Thought I would do a quick time-lapse on it.

Today I started on a toile for Ondin. I used poly chiffon for this and pleated the front 3 panels, without being to frantic about it so it looks more organic. The back is gathered. The skirt will be attached to a basque to prevent bulk around the waist. 
The end photo shows a bit of silk chiffon pleated on top.

Today is the official start of my final project of my course for which I will create this fantastic design of Ondin by the hand of the super talented Giusy Coviello. When she showed her portfolio and saw I this design, I knew I wanted to make this. I’m super excited to work together with Giusy on it and to be the first one to make this come to life. It will include loads of creative dying & construction and I might use a few materials I have not worked with before. 
Over the next weeks I will also finish my first project, the habit à la française.

Last update of the week. 
Sleeves at tacked in with cuffs attached and all fastenings on the bodice are done.

Monday I’ll do one last fitting as I had to add another layer of net into the back of the skirt so the hem length is now a mystery

Top of the skirt is (as good as) done and the bodice is faced and hemmed. Hopefully I can finish it, apart from the fastenings, tomorrow.

For the @royaloperahouse production of The Cunning Little Vixen I made 140 sunny side up eggs . The skirts are made by Madeleine Fry, the wings and hat dresses are by other makers. It was a very cute production with amazing young talent.

Corset is done. Since it’s not going to be seen, it’s bound with tape to reduce bulk and a quicker finish.

Second fitting done. I can now concentrate on getting everything finished and look tidy. I can now also make the real apron and bows. 
The back had collapsed a bit so I will add another layer of net there. But overall happy!

Bodice top layer is cut on the bias and then shaped and steamed into the body shape. This has eliminated any darts. I did this because there are non in the design. 
The corset is more or less ready for the second fitting.

A few photos from the skirt progress. 
The skirt is more or less ready for fitting. I just need to tack the skirt to the waistband. 
I added a layer of soft net to the shorter stiff layer so it stands out a bit more. 
Working on the bodice and new corset now.

This week so far!
I also recut 3 panels of my corset as it was easier than trying to fiddle with the tiny seam allowances and take it in.
