Ok, so I haven’t put the trimmings on, and I’m not attaching the bustle to the rest until I’ve done that, but otherwise this is just about done:
Not including the trims or the price of the pattern (as the pattern was purchased for the green version and not this, which was never meant to happen) the yellow polonaise and the overskirt is currently standing at a cost of £2.70, so basically £2 for a duvet cover and 70p for the new thread I needed to buy. the total cost of the trimming (and rigilene I’m planning to pop into it) is less than £5 (6mm wide gold ribbon and some ivory coloured lace)
It’s safe to say I’m pretty chuffed with all this. Excuse the silly faces!
