The last couple of weeks have been focused on my schools production and after finishing a couple of maid's caps I then needed to finish the dress.
The dress started off with loads of black lace around it and buttons down the front. They were the first thing to go so I had a basic black dress.
I then cut the pieces of the apron from an old white flat bed sheet (boiled at 90o first in the washing machine!) and then sewed them together.
I then pinned on the white lace and then sewed it on.
I then pinned the apron to the dress.
I used invisible thread to then stitch the apron to the dress.
P.s. The picture of the dress is on an awful metal mannequin... I am begging the school to buy a proper one for the department as it would make life so much easier!
