Quick snapshots of the silk sample shown here without the gloves and polonaise. Also, the fichu is not yet stayed to the back of the corset and a band on each arm from which to hang the wings has yet to be applied.
The bat costume sans wings: Finalizing the drape of the skirt polonaise:
My daughter fashioned this little bat in paper and fabric mâché.
Below, you see the corset and polonaise with the wings. This is the stage where I am marking the fichu for fastening it to the wings and corset:
I had my daughter hold the wings up for these shots which was tough due to the constant breeze!
I will start the gloves this week. It has been 6 years since I last sewed this style of glove, so I am taking my good old time. I will be happy to post photos of the process here as I proceed.
I then expect to have good photos made of the entire costume.
