YAY!!! Fabric for underskirt has arrived. It is a satiny duponi material that I found on Ebay - 10 yards for 15.00. So 23 total with shipping!

The color is a perfect match (there is no yellow to it, just a pretty ivory cream) and the texture difference will make it noticable. I think I have decided to use the goldish fabric from my mothers dress to make a box-pleat trim to go around its hem, and when we bustle the dress up properly, it will be a very pretty accent. Will post a pic of moms dress soon.

Also, I found like 20 yards of lace that my fmil gave me years ago, so that will be gathered and flounced to make the petticoat cover for the wire frame.
