So, I've done lots of work on my undergarments and a bit on the skirt base. Pics will be uploaded showing this work.
For now, here are 8 completed ribbon roses and 3 more ready to sew to the crinoline. And of course I had to put the green leaves in there to see how they are all coming.
I love varigated ribbon as you can switch it around for how you want the flower to appear. The more solid pink rose on the far right is the same ribbon as the two whiter roses next to it. This will look great on the dress as they will seem more natural in variation rather than having dozens of the exact same flower.
