Done! I think..

This is what 14 purple Waltz of the Flowers bodices look like.

And this is a mock up of the result, on an underskirt belonging to my daughter, The real ones will have a shorter, flatter tutu under them.

Over 700 metres of thread went into these. I bought a pack of five 100 metre reels of thread and also used two different ones I had in from something else, and still had to go and buy more. And that doesn't include the overlocking round each piece. It was just seams.

And this is what 14 swan bodices look like, all in a heap.

and a mock up of these?

Difficult to see on the spare bed. I think they will be okay.

Dress rehearsal Sunday, we will see if they ride up, in which case they will need anchoring. Hand sewing of press studs. I hate hand sewing, so keep fingers crossed they behave.
Thank you!

And does this clematis remind you of anything? I think it has similarities to those waltzing flowers I have been working on!

So from the second half of April, until now, I have made 40 separate garments!

I may now be making petticoats as well for some of the dancers. How many? What style? Not sure, but will find out tomorrow.

Happy sewing...
