|I love Enchanted and really want to do the blue period style dress she wore during the How does she know number. However hoping I don't have to destroy anyones curtains for it!!!|
29/01/08 - Update. My wig arrived today, haven't taken it out the packet yet as I'm at work and people might think I'm strange (well OK, more strange than normal!) but it's the perfect colour and comes in a really long bag so should be long enough too!!! Can't find the right fabric anywhere, so have bought fabric paint and will get the right coloured fabric and paint the flowers on myself (cue hours of painting flowers :? ) But hey, the price you pay for being obsessive about accuracy!!
07/04/08 - Cut the turquoise fabric last night, will start pinning it together this week to check the fit, then need to cut and pin underskirts to check those! making the dress will be fairly easy, its the damn fabric painting that's going to kill me!
14/04/08 - Main bodice sewn together now, had a bit of an issue with the main curves at the front gaping open and showing my bra, but seem to have solved that by a bit of craft sewing! Cut the underskirts out, sewn the sides together and pinned to the bodice and added the main split skirt to the top, stuck the ribbon round to see what it looked liked and it works quite well! Just need to make the hem a little lower on the underskirts and actually hem up the main skirt! Oh and sewing skirts to bodice is always a plan as the pins hurt! However I actually ran out of cotton last night so sewing together proved difficult! Rectified this on my lunch break! other than that, its just embroidery to go!
15/04/2008 - w00t sewn together now! embroidery to go. :?
21/04/08 - Started the embroidery at the weekend, took about an hour and a half to do the first bit, most of that was trying to work out how to do the flowers, should pick up some more speed now! *waves good bye to sanity*
29/04/2008 four hours of embroidery done and I have only finished the bust and very nearly done my left shoulder. Oh god this is going to take FOREVER.
