To prepare myself for the bodice construction I have cut the circles out in advance to save time and make it easier to apply to my bodice. I am still waiting for one of the fabrics so have cut out the remaining 3 fabrics as that will be the next step after finishing my back of the skirt. The way in which I created these circles was by tracing around a masking tape tube and simply cut around them. Easy! I decided to leave the raw edges as it links in with my chosen theme giving the feel of a working class era.
