For a recap on the making of Kate's dress click these links: the petticoat, satin part of the bodice, skirt, sewing the dress and skirt together, and making the lace part of the bodice. This costume is almost done, I just need to get to the store to pick up more buttons first!
Hubby picked out the fabric & pattern (McCall's Costumes M4745) which will work well to make the base of Prince William's uniform. I'll be making views A & D. View A is the coat, which I will make in red and add white piping. I will make view D, the pants, in black with a red stripe on the sides.
Of course there is much more decorating that will go into the costume after the base is made.
And here, are the items I will "decorate" the costume with. I have a plan in my head for all of this... I just hope it works out!
Here I have all the fabric cut out, which took forever! (good thing for watching old TV-show re-runs in the background)
