I started on this project a while ago when I found the materials that were almost exactly like the official pictures. However moving and work got in the way. But I finally finished. There is a base layer of a petticoat and bloomers. I could not tell from the dolls design if the top undergarment was a chemise or maybe one full length garment with the bloomers. So I made a corset with a gathered front for the “poof” effect. The petticoat was my first attempt and I feel the skirt needed more flare. Next time I will double the layers of a petticoat. The blouse had to be modified since i gained some muscle weight, so there are extra closures that were not intended. And I did not have time to finish the boots. Overall, I think I am mostly satisfied with the way it turned out.
