Adaptations (Posted 11th May 2012)

Well, as I said in my previous entry, this costume looked gorgeous but needs a little work. I've reduced the collar so it no longer reaches my ears, simply by cutting it down to the stand and then back-stitching the stand to join the two pieces and make it tidy. I've had another look at the reference pictures, and she actually has a rosette on her hat, not a bow, so I'm going to change that, and I've bought a spare wig as this is one costume I plan on using for several cons. So, all that's left is to paint the boots all the way up, trim the spare wig and take the skirt and waistcoat in if necessary - oh, and buy the gloves. Other than that, all done! \o/

So, the costume's arrived (Posted 2nd March 2012)

It looks pretty good, actually, for £50.

Positives:
The colour is spot on
The skirt, waistcoat and shirt are all the right length
The colour matches my boots (more a plus for my boot-painting skills, though, I suppose)

Negatives:
The collar is a bit high and will need reshaping
The sizing is a bit big so, as I plan to lose wait before Ame, I'll need to take in the skirt, waistcoat and coat a bit
The coat isn't quite long enough - but it's close enough!

In addition, I need to sew the bow onto the hat (it's currently attached with a safety pin), and I've discovered I need to trim my wig a bit more - the fringe is still a tad uneven. But at least this is one costume that's almost there!
