I wound up being very unproductive with my sewing time yesterday, though I think I at least figured out the base crinolette shape for the Fairy Godmother. I took my old Ren Faire hoops, took out the top wire, and decreased the circumference on all the others (particularly the bottom hoop). I added my Jane bustle on top, and pinned the hoops to the bustle in the CB and sides, so that it lifts up the back of the hoops just slightly, making it a tiny bit more elliptical. 

I think it works! But now I need to make a new petticoat to go over it, since none of my existing ones are the right shape. 

I tried draping silk to figure out the funky drapes in the overskirt afterwards, but that's where my brain shut off. Also, I thought I had cut out the whole plaid bodice mockup. Apparently I've only cut out three pieces. :( 

And though I felt better yesterday, I'm back to feeling crappy today. Blurgh.

I didn't realize you were legit building that costume from that inspiration, it was dickish of me to post your link in that community. I have deleted, with contrition.

I came to historical sewing because it interested me, so part of me is overwhelmed by the desire to do it "right." Which never happens and means I rarely start new things. Need to get over myself to so I can try new eras occasionally.
