I've sewn bias tape unto the lace so it will not fray and be kept nice. I started tacking it to the sleeves but some how I ran short so there isn't enough...I might have to get creative.
Here are a couple pictures of the sleeves on the original chemise worn by Keira:
I just saw this picture where the drawstring is on the outside. I put mine on the inside. Oh well...little details I suppose. ;)
The chemise is almost done! I just need to finish tacking the lace on and sew casings into the waist for the drawstring. I'm going to try and finish it tonight. We shall see....I'll update soon. I'm on a bit of a sewing kick now. I'm impatient to start on the corset, I have the fabric all ready to be cut. :)
Although I continually talk about movie costumes on this blog, I am not a movie reviewer. Not all the films I discuss are recommended and I do not choose to review weather they are appropriate or not for the simple fact that every person's standards are different. Something that is fine for me may be offensive to some one else and visa versa. If you would like to look into the appropriateness of a title, I recommend pluggedinonline.com. I have not seen all the movies I discuss, and am simply interested in the art of clothes in film. I will leave you to decide for yourself if you will watch the movie or not.
