CADD Strikes Again

I feel like having unsuccessful mockups makes me have really bad CADD. So naturally, I haven't touched the Regency dress in about a week at this point, because sleeve mockup #1 didn't work. Instead, I've been planning and plotting for the 1890s gala gown. At this point, I'm still in the gathering materials phase. I've had the yellow silk since last year, but I needed lining materials, and everything for the embellishments. Because I have no patience (and it's hard to find), I'm not using princess lace tape. Instead, I'm going to be cutting up embroidered and pre-embellished bridal trim. Or at least, that's the plan. I found one I liked and ordered it from aliexpress, so I guess I'll find out in a month if it will actually work. And if the 9m I ordered is enough! I also went to one of the giant Joanns yesterday to buy sateen for the skirt lining, and the matte satin for the cutaway sections of the skirt. I still need to get hair canvas for the hem, and I need to get fabric for the petticoat, but I hope to order both of those this afternoon. Of course, I want to work on the skirt right away, but first I at least need to make the petticoat, and I should make the corset as well. And I really need to finish the Regency dress and get that out of the way. I'm ordering the fabric for the long sleeve part, but otherwise, I want it done. 

Also, I know I have posted this a bunch of different places, but what is the best fabric for an 1890s trained petticoat? I'm using TV 121, though hopefully modifying it to be more like TV 125 if I can figure out how. 

By the way, I'm really concerned this is going to turn out super tacky, with the feathered hem. Ack!
