12th February 2010: JACKET! Yeah. Pattern arrived and my impatient self was impatient and got started on this as soon as it landed on the doorstep. Only some fluffing bad news, not got quited enough material to do this so will have to grab some more. Its like a sleeve's worth that I need, which is spigginly annoying. The only other thing is that the fabric shop where I got it from doesn't seem to have any left in stock O_O
ENTERS DRAMAMAMMAMA LLAMA MODE!
I'm hoping they get more in or that I can order some into store as that material is perfect and perfectly gorgeous. Though there is an alternative if that ends up being a fali option. There is another fabric that is similar in colour. It doesn't shimmer like the other one but it is shiney so wouldn't matter if it was for the side front/back panels rather than the other "more on show" parts of the pattern. PLAN B WHOOOOP!
Rigght. On a more positive note, my wig for Lisa arrived today (Thank ye Sammykins!) and I'm wearing it as I type. Its really nice to wear though it does need a little styling. The colours a bit darker than what I wanted it but unfortuantly this was the only one that thas the right length and style
Neeeep..Other than that, its perfect! :D
3rd February 2010: PATTERN!!!! Yesh. Pattern for the jacket arrived yesterday....gosh its hugeeee! Has a pair of trousers pattern in it as well which I'm going to try too as they're very nice. Worked out that I've enough fabric to do this + Lining etc. *phew* The only thing is that its giving me a headache trying to work where/what part of the shapes to insert the stripes into. Tis quite confuselling as i'll have to seperate the pattern shapes/cut them up to insert the stripes.....neh.
Almost done with the main top too. Just need to work out the neck and attach the tie then its done.
Pictures will follow sooooooon :D

2nd February 2010: Part way there! Yup! Lisa is coming along nicely. The Skirt is complete and I'm half-way in completing the top. Had to make the pattern from scratch for the top and its mostly gone to plan, though I just need to work out what the fluff i've done with the sleeves and sort out the shape a bit more.... Just waiting for the jacket pattern to arrive now then as soon as the top's finished I can get started on that!

yays for the wig! Cha, it is a bit darker than I expected but oh wells, it still looks good on you x3

yeah. I wanted it a bit lighter but that was the only one that was the right length to work with. The others that were shiney teal blue were too short or very expensive. Its a very nice shade of blue though. xxxxx
