Sequins! (Posted 26th May 2011)

Oh my gosh sequins are taking forever to sew on!
So Im going to Emergency Plan B ..I'm glueing them on instead, and half the panel is now done.

One more day left. I can do this. ^_^

making paper pattern (Posted 26th May 2011)

I used the Rough to draw around, transfering the shape onto thick lining paper. The curves on one side looked nicer than the other so I folded the paper down the centre line and copied the shape onto the other side to get a nice symmetrical pattern. Then cut the shape out and used it to trace around onto the back of my costume fabric. Seam allowance was then drawn outside these lines.

Pic shows my finished paper pattern for the centre panel.

centre panel making a Rough (Posted 26th May 2011)

Bearing in mind that this all stretches when worn!! ..So, wearing the bodysuit I pinned spare fabric on the front and kept adding adjusting and drawing on it to match the shape of the centre panel of the costume. When it looked right I unpinned it and lay it flat out to draw my pattern. This is how the rough looked at this stage.

Bodysuit II (Posted 26th April 2011)

So I bought a new body suit, and this one is made from a beautifull stretch Satin fabric. :) So soft to the touch too.
The back is very low cut..so that needs filling in. Apart from that though it is a great base to start from. Next I will get to work on drawing up the patterns for the main centre panel, and also build the back up to the bra line ... :)
pic - base bodysuit

body suit is Matt ! (Posted 25th April 2011)

cheapo body suit arrived and...dissapointment. Fabric is Matt! ¬_¬

sequins instead (Posted 19th April 2011)

So after calculating this was gonna take a whole heap of Shwarovski crystals to cover the front, and hence mega expensive, I have decided to go for cup sequins instead. Yes this is a lot to sew on. @_@ If it takes too long though I will just glue em on! :P
Silver Sequins and Hot Pink sequins on their way.

buying parts.. (Posted 17th April 2011)

ok ..Waiting for a nude colour bodysuit to arrive - that will form the base for my cos. Ill have to re-shape the top part cuz its more like a leotard. And Im hoping the fabric is the satiny shiney type..
Cant wait to start on making the diamante centre panel. I want to try to get that colour gradient her costume has ..from clear diamonds at the top through rose pink in the middle and finishing with fushia at the bottom. Ive seen the Shwarovski crystals I want to use on eB. I just hope it doesnt cost a bomb to fill the front panel. I might have to cheat a bit and use part crystals and part sequins. Sparkly again. ^_^
