Bow, apron, and more ruffles

It feels like all I’ve been doing is modeling ruffles at this point.

Lots and lots of them. It’s been going okay despite the fact my left hand is giving me some trouble, I’m having some sleep troubles too as I regularly catch myself nodding off while doing these (It is such a slow and boring step!).

It feels like this is a decent chunk of work for the past 3 days. I’m trying to keep the geometry of the apron somewhat close to the skirt underneath to avoid obvious clipping issues later (which will probably happen anyway, no matter what I do)

The apron surface need a few tweaks to connect to the trim properly, and I need to clean up where the ruffles meet the belt, it is a bit messy in there. Like with the underside of the skirt, a back-face might not be necessary here either if I use two-sided rendering.

Once the tea apron is all good I think that I’ll jump to the collar & tie before worrying too much about the apron bib option. In fact, I might put it aside for a time and see if I can get a preliminary weight painting/UV map done, just to see if I can expose a few obvious problems this model is going to “feature”.

I also want to take Robust Weight Transfer for a spin.
