As usual, I’m behind schedule – but here are some photos of the pink gown as I tried it on last week with (most) of the pieces of the whole costume.
The puffs are poofed, ribbon trim is on, and the skirt is looking finished!
Just to prove that I have actually accomplished something since last blogging about this project! In fact, I’ve gotten more done than I thought, because the skirt is just about finished.
Hello again! I fear I’ve set another bad milestone – nearly four months without an update! Yikes! Well, things have been hectic, and as ACen is now a terrifying three weeks away, I’m in full crunch mode to get the convention costumes done. Unfortunately, I don’t have much more at this point to show than I did when I last blogged… double yikes!
Well, I’m going to be quite busy with work stuff over the next few weeks, and most likely won’t be doing much sewing. I should pick it up again sometime after February. In the meantime, though, I did get a bit of a start on my cosplays!
I slept most of the day today, but I did get up in the afternoon and make some good progress on my green gown’s bodice.
Have you ever just seen a costume – in a picture, a movie, or read in a book – and knew at that first look that you were someday going to have that costume? Of course, there are tons of fabulous movie and TV show costumes that I would love to be able to make, but I definitely don’t have the time or resources to ever get to everything on my dream costume list. But this costume would not let itself not be made.
