...*chariots of fire blares out from all over* (Posted 26th November 2010)
I DID IT!
I have officially finished making the outfit! HUZZAH!
And now the pipe dream has become a beautiful, velvety, lacey, blinging, lined, royal, fluffy and very likely rather warm reality!
(I really wish I had confetti canons for moments like this! and a little marching band too for celebratory music...)
Really looking forward to wearing the outfit now with everyone else! and seeing all the other beautiful costumes.
See you all at the ball! xXx
SOOOO CLOSE! (Posted 25th November 2010)
YAY! I'm actually almost finished with this costume!
I'm sat here looking up at in on the hanger and I still can't believe I've managed to pull of making it. I thought when I first saw the costume ooo that's pretty I wanna wear it, but kinda always thought of it as far too hard for me! but I've done it =D and it looks pretty awesome, if I say so myself.
Lapels! LAPELS! (Posted 22nd November 2010)
Okay so I have now bought everything I need for my costume, I have also won 2 broaches for it! YAY!
I have almost finished the collar and lapels now, and here is a photo of the lapels so far, I need to make the bigger one smaller, but thought I'd give a teaser anyways!
Basics done! (Posted 18th November 2010)
I have actually fallen in love with this coat!
I'm really pleased with how it turned out! and am now definitely going to be working with a lot more patterns! whenever possible.
I have now finished the basic coat and have started on the cuffs, collar and lapels. Will be starting the scarf this weekend, though that won't take long, keeping it simple.
So can't wait for the ball now!
In mother russia cosplay sews you! (Posted 17th November 2010)
I have now come to the realisation that this is true!
I have made excellent progress today and am very pleased with how the outfit is turning out.
Pieces, sleeves and lining! (Posted 15th November 2010)
I have cut out all the pieces of fabric to make the basic jacket and the lining! Huzzah! now I just to make them into a jacket and Embelish!
I have so far almost managed to make the sleeves, though the sewing machine proceeded to throw a hissy fit and spew out a load of thread at me so have given up for tonight. I hope to have the basic Jacket done by the weekend.
I can has Fabrics, Pattern and Wig (Posted 11th November 2010)
I have bought my first ever pattern! Woo! Now I need to attempt to use it with all my new fabrics for this outfit. I have lots of cotton velvet, duchess satin and other such wonderous things! (and yes there's more gold bias tape on the way *shudders*)
Will keep you posted on my progress.
