I'm a masochist and haven't made this dress enough times yet.

I love this dress so much.

I can finally start this over the Summer! I make it a point not to do anything sewing related at Uni, so I've not had the chance to touch my sewing machine until now :)

Armed with metres of green embroidery floss...

@DKid: LOL, no not because of those caterpillars, they can be washed out xD But it was rushed and kinda badly made and so I want to remake it so that it's much better :'D

Ahh, such a shame you won't be able to make it for Gemucon! But I look forward to seeing it Aya instead, then, since you make such an awesomely pretty Garnet~ ^_^V

Not exactly progress, more of a "Hey! Look what I've acquired!" journal entry.
This is basically a repeat of what I've posted on Twitter/Instagram so please ignore, you've already seen this before if you follow me.

It's not as big as I thought, yet still more accurate than my old necklace!

Looking like this won't be done for Gemucon any more so am going to try for Ayacon. Mainly because it's very unlikely I will get a chance to do any sewing until the Summer holidays - too busy with Uni :(

Hoop skirt! (Posted 31st August 2011)

They used nylon instead of tulle. Which I much prefer, but it's not as the description told me. Ah well XD

It's not very well laid out because I put it on, fought my way to one side of the room to the other over the junk on the floor OTL. The timer took the picture just as soon as I walked over there without preparing the skirt and stuff. But you get the idea!! XD;

Hoop skirt (Posted 29th August 2011)

FYEAAAH trailing hoop skirt at last.

Reason why it's taken me ages to upload any progress on Version 3 Garnet was because the trailing hoop skirt put me off to no end. I was planning on making it because all the ones I found were over £40 and I couldn't justify it. However the loooovely Becca (ZombieNerdz) linked me a cheap one for around a tenner and I bought it instantly too!

Thank you lovely <3333

I don't normally post online pictures but I haven't got it yet and with no space in my room as it is, it's unlikely I will be able to get a picture of it anyway XD
Becca has a picture, so I know it looks pretty much as it does in the online pictures :B
