Re: Heavy skirts, is there a way to help with the weight?

You are absolutely right Heather! The corset I'm wearing is getting quite old (and my body has changed a little after my pregnancies ;)) so what you describe is exactly what is happening: I feel the pressure exactly at the points where the corset is getting tired ;) Thank you so much for your help a...

Heavy skirts, is there a way to help with the weight?

I'm so sorry for another question and one that is my own mistake I think ;) I'm working on a bustle gown with a combination of TV101, TV362 and TV201. I made the wire bustle of a light, sturdy fabric but for the two overskirts I used cotton velvet. The look is really nice, but with box pleats and al...

Re: TV201 - connecting the dots

Thank you so much for your replies! I think the upside down part (and the fact that for the shorter view, all my pieces seemed to have a different length at the bottom) got me confused and I didn't dare to proceed from there. But it fits great the way you all described it, so thank you very much!

TV201 - connecting the dots

My apologies for another TV201 questions, but I'm struggling a bit with this one. First off, I LOVE these patterns, but as a non-native speaker I sometimes struggle a bit with the instructions. So my apologies if this is really a simple thing, but: I've laid out the pieces of the TV201 and am wonder...

Tv201 velvet & pleating, inspiration?

Dear seamstresses! At the moment I'm working on a velvet winter bustle gown, with TV201 as the underskirt. I have found a lovely green cotton velvet, but I'm wondering: how to approach the pleated trim on this one? Is velvet too heavy to pleat? What kind of pleat would look nice? I try to find image...

TVE41 - Adding coloured pin tucks to a blouse

A very good morning to you all! I have pattern TVE 41 (an Edwardian blouse) and I am thinking of adding pin tucks to the shirt, because I really like the look of them :) In searching for ideas, I came across this image from the movie 'Adèle Blanc-Sec' and I really love how the tucks here differ in c...

Maternity gowns & corsets

A very good evening to you all! I've been trying to research maternity gowns and corsets for a while and was wondering: has anyone of you ever tried to make or design one of these? I find it really hard to find good inspiration material (even in movies and shows) and construction stories, so I'm rea...

Taffeta

A very good evening to you all! I have a question and hope that someone can help me out! I will be starting on a burlesque kind of gown soon, made of the TV corset and the waterfall skirt and have been doubting a lot about the fabric. Finally I have decided to go for a good quality taffeta, but I'm ...
