Well this is taking a while, but today I finally got the front of the skirt ironed down. It took ages to carefully remove all of the paper backing, making sure I didn't fray the velveteen or rip off the sticky stuff. Next, everything had to be lined up with the template and pinned down. I finally worked up the courage to take to it with an iron, using an offcut of velveteen to try and stop the pile getting crushed.

I couldn't help pin in the pleats and hang it on the model...what do you think?
