And here I ended up not saying anything about the cosplay XD It was absolutely amazing! Your skills are certainly improving rapidly! The cape looks amazing, as did all of those coins! They really made it stand out :3 The sleeves worked incredibly well, as did that necklace! I hope the fish inside of it are still alive 8D

Journal

COINS.COINS EVERYWHERE. (Posted 19th May 2013)

I have to cut out over 100 gold cardboard coins as each coin is made up of 2 pieces glued together.
............
I am sick of seeing circles. That is all. XD

Nearly there! (Posted 15th May 2013)

Progress pic of dress and cape. I've started sewing the bias binding. It won't look as big/messy when it's sewn on the wrong side of my cape lol! This was a test fit to see where my jewel is going to attach to my cape. On next test fit I'll fir the cape higher up.

One sleeve done (Posted 9th May 2013)

I made a practice sleeve and it was good to edit and use it to adjust the best look for my final sleeves. I've now sewn one sleeve and will start on the second soon. I'm glad it's so flowy!! ^^

Dress main body done, now sleeves... (Posted 7th May 2013)

I've edited my back so that it fits nicely now and the invisible zip has been inserted. I'm currently making a sleeve pattern and will make a practice sleeve since they're different from usual ones.

Dress progress (Posted 29th April 2013)

I've sewn the 2 patterns to the bodice and added an invisible zip. The patterns dont line up perfectly on the back, plus there's some extra room in the back. So I'm going to edit it, remove the zip, make the back more fitted and try to match up the patterns more. Then I'll add the zip again.

Bodice Pattern Progress! (Posted 23rd April 2013)

This is what the (top) bodice pattern looked like as I was pressing the hem using bondaweb. It took ages XD Its complete now. So just the lower pattern to hem/bondaweb and then I can pin both of them and adjust their positions before handsewing them to the bodice. :D I'm really pleased with how neat it's turned out ^^

Getting there slowly XD (Posted 22nd April 2013)

The past few days I've been checking my supplies, bought a headband and have been planning the bodice patterns. The headband had an accessory super-glued to it, so it met my coping saw and has been removed XD

I've made paper patterns for the bodice patterns and cut my fabric out. I've attempted to iron press the hem allowances. They are SO tiny, I'm worried about how I'm going to hem and sew them onto my bodice. Oh well! Must be a way somehow :P Even if we weren't going in the masquerade, I'd still be perfectionist on everything XD

Starting again soon (Posted 15th April 2013)

Bought some materials recently, snap fasteners, materials to make my necklace. Will start on the paper pattern for the bodice next week or so. Might have to hand sew the stupid pattern on because of how small the sqaures are (Damn you CLAMPPP!). XD Will then add the zip and finally have a complete dress. (Then sleeves etc)

Dress Bodice Patterns - Early stages (Posted 1st February 2013)

I lined the cape about a week ago. I've now worked out the sizes for my patterns on the bodice and their positions. Sadly I can't sew the dress together/add the zip until these patterns are neatly added to the bodice (means I have to keep getting pinned into the outfit for test fits XD). The next step whenever I'm free, is to make accurately sized paper patterns for both patterns. Slowly slowly ;D

Cape progress (Posted 11th January 2013)

Cape pattern now sewn own. Just need to line it. Will be adding the gold bias binding and jewel in a few more weeks since I haven't found the perfect paint for the jewel yet.

Slowly getting there (Posted 8th January 2013)

I've bought most of my fabric now including lining for the cape. I'm currently making the dress and making paper patterns for the bodice pattern. I did want to gather the skirt part but due to skirt pattern issues thats not possible XD So waist seam it is then! :)

Cape-first stages (Posted 22nd December 2012)

After making a practice cape, I've cut my pink fabric. Had a few issues with fabric size but hopefully it should be fine on the final version (lined etc). I've ordered my fabric for the pink pattern on the cape. I'm currently finishing off the bodice. :)

Beginning a new project :D (Posted 16th December 2012)

I've decided to do a detailed journal for this outfit. I'll try my best to note down how long I've worked on it each time, not including cutting fabric (which seems to take me hours as I'm so paranoid) XD I've found some spare pink fabric that will be perfect for the main body of the cape :)
