|Here is my costume for May 2013. Getting a good start on it already|
Its made of a dark green and blue, heavy taffeta with satin ribbon appliqued on top.
I cut one pattern piece of each colour and then cut into strips. I then turned over alternate strips to give me a left and right pattern pieces, and stitched the strips back together.
The hat had 22 pieces of fabric!!
I have so far appliqued the sleeves and sewed the jacket strips together. The hat is almost done but for the band to edge it with.
