Journal

80% Overall (Posted 5th February 2013)

...A very rough percentage. What I actually mean is it's all complete save for the cape, the new sewing machine is working like a dream and I'm not as behind schedule as I worried!
I've just finished the breeches. Originally I had planned for them to have pockets but that proved a little too fiddly for me in a panicked con-in-a-fortnight state, but I think I get the idea of them nontheless so that's a sort-of experience?
I digress, I'm excited for Midlands now instead of just worried. I'm pretty happy with with how the breeches turned out and though there's one or two parts that have gone a little wrong, such as the seam placements when worn, the fact the waist band is a little spacey yet the trouser hems hug my chunky calves, they're comfy and better than I expected myself to achieve.

...Oh! I also acquired 'Sting' from Toys 'R Us 'with realistic battle sounds' - shwingggg :'D

The story so far... (Posted 17th January 2013)

Well I was supposed to start off easy and work my way into it but of course with my terrible sewing machine nothing is ever easy and doing the simple task of getting the most basic waistcoat done was hours of crying and trying not to break things. *sigh* This makes the fact I've made the breeches already in the past even more upsetting but alas we press on! Can you tell that's the part I am most dreading?
The waistcoat still needs buttons and button holes but I wanted to show some progress anyway even if it's the most boring.... I'll also probably do a journal concerning the hobbit ears (which arrived this morning!) when I have some spirit gum.
I'm still waiting on a couple of things (Lorien brooch, binder cape material and cape pattern) but once the buttons are bought I'll mostly have everything under the cape so it was worth making a journal I guess?
