gaga for gaga step 8

Well, we're winding down to the last days and it's time for me to add the finishing touches.

Saturday is the big day! Who else is as psyched as I am????

Hot cocoa with mini marshmallows has been helping me get through this...


Cutting the centerpiece, I used a thick black board (not poster board), then covered it in lame fabric. The lines are drawn simply by permanent marker...







I also used lame fabric for the center front portion between where the "skirt" is.


Putting in the boning...



The dress is stitched together but I have to run and buy another zipper foot later today (it's 2:26am right now :( ) to fix my center back.

The rest of the wiring must go into the skirt as well...

And the silver squares shall go on tomorrow!

This is looking super awesome. I'm totally blown away by your dedication. I can't wait to see what the end results look like put together. Happy Halloween!
