After finishing the undershirt, I sewed white lace around the sleeves and neckline. I took the same white lace and hand-dyed it pinkish/purple to match the fabric, then sewed that around the bottom of the undershirt.
The fabric I used for the overlaying bodice was ordered as a custom print through Spoonflower, designed by Aimee Major.
I had to tinker around with the opening of the bodice, which shows a slither of the undershirt, until it looked like it was showing just enough.
I then added white colored eyelits and sewed around each one for extra reinforcement.
I drew the puffy sleeve pattern free-hand (basically just a bell shape with a rim at the bottom, as seen in the picture). I sewed pink ribbon to the sleeves (shiny side up this time).
The corset ties are pink suede and I added pink swarovski crystals around the sleeves and cuffs. The sleeves look super skinny because I dyed a pair of little girl's white leotards pink. However, they do stretch and fit my arms nicely.
Note: The blue line down the middle of the top piture (the undershirt) is a water-soluble fabric marker. These really come in handy for drawing non-permanent lines and writing notes.
