1887 Bat Costume Pattern is Ready!

Quick snapshots of the silk sample shown here without the gloves (gloves process blogged here) 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.

I will post the process of making the gloves separately.
