The details on the dress are phenomenal. The yardage in the skirt is BRILLIANT- that cartridge pleating almost made me swoon, especially knowing someone had to do it BY HAND. What I wondered was, did you use any special boning for those panniers? Because I’m amazed they didn’t buckle or lose shape holding up the weight of those skirts. Or did they, and you just had a separate set of undergarments for the other piece of the episode?
