Journal

Complete! (Posted 11th April 2012)

Finished the night before!
A first time for everything =]

hair piece / flower (Posted 7th April 2012)

First attempt failed - made amendments second attempt worked =]
Ciaran suggested putting the pipe cleaners into each petal to give it the flexibility - I used sharpie pens to create the darker shape on the inside of the flower and took some wire and beads to decorate them / will upload a closer shot soon of the finished thing!

Belt Progress (Posted 7th April 2012)

The beginning of the belt!
Clear gem bases provided by Street-Angel

Armlets and Bracelets (Posted 6th April 2012)

Craft foam, gems and spray paint! <3

pleats (Posted 29th March 2012)

gnthuiryhr I've never pleated anything - which is probably REALLY obvious XD;
I need to iron them and sew along the top edge add the waist band and zip!

Base complete! (Posted 28th March 2012)

and not in the slightest bit revealing - ohno not at all x_x
Thankgod for a long stretchy vest that day.. XD

Base WIp (Posted 23rd March 2012)

Modifying my current dress pattern to suit Nia's practically involved creating an entirely new one XD;
But it's done! /Looks darker as the photo was taken on my iphone in shoddy lighting

[Image shows the back of the dress]

I need to work out the final length then sew it up and add the zip and fit it

Shoe bases (Posted 22nd March 2012)

Originally had a line of diamonds on the upper strap which I unpicked
Adding craft foam and gems soon!
