- Yeah, these clothes better turn out as nice as that
picture! I've spent the last three months (my entire summer
break) just trying to figure out how to get that
cone-skirted look without the farthingale( I have this
thing about being able to sit down). I have not even begun
to figure out how to do the freanch hood. And that's not
all! The corset took me a month, and I don't even have the
boning in yet. I have definitely not skrimped on the
material either...I am using navy velvet and a lighter blue
embroidered fabric for the gown.
