|Time Taken :||8 days on and off with major procrastination done at the beginning ;3|
|Ciel and Lizzie's chocolate box matching outfits.|
I'll be doing this for the friday? of Ayacon... at least I think that's when! haha!
Lettie (My Ciel) drew up the designs for the outfits based on the original coverart.
We have decided to change the fabric choice due to difficulty in finding it exactly but it still works with the whole aesthetic of the piece.
So the costume is pretty much finished, all that's left is the hat. But I made a little ribbon headdress to use since I didn't have enough time to finish my hat as I was too busy making my Ciels hat xD
The whole dress is made from the same brown fabric. The gold diamonds on the skirt, bodice and sleeves of the jacket were sewn on by me.
|Chamise undergarment (hooped)||High||Complete|

|Cut the brown fabric (sleeves underbust + skirt) and sew the gold lines||High||Complete|
|Jacket /w sleeves||Medium||Complete|

Fabric + planning! (Posted 3rd August 2011)
So yesterday I went out with my darling Ciel to get the fabric! We could find exactly what we wanted but we found compromises. Although to save money I am now sewing hundreds of gold lines onto the plain brown fabric to get the pattern on the dress @___________________@ I'll try and count how many I do to share my torture ;D
Phew! Writing all that just took so much out of me, I'll be a goner by the time I've finished! Wish me luck :3
P.S. I want to post a pic, but I currently have no means of getting the pictures off my phone and onto the PC! Such a pain D;
