|This costume seems really simple. I'm hoping I can modify clothes for this one.|
Hey yo! Update after long time! (Posted 2nd June 2014)
So, you know how in the last post I said their was a Con coming up?
I practically finished the shirt earlier, but I made a huge mistake of sewing up the sleeves before testing if they were the right fit; and now their too small. So I just decided a few weeks ago that I would just leave the top without sleeves. Also, my perfect shorts have gone missing, again!!
The gloves were a pain, and I ended up ruining them, so I have to get another pair.
Where are the shoes?! (Posted 11th November 2013)
Well, I haven't really been working on this costume for a while due to Uni and privacy issues (sharing a room has become difficult, but now that there's a Con on the horizon, I thought I had better start working.
Good news, my skirt is almost finished, I'm just debating whether or not to hand sew the hem, since the machine has been shirring the fabric when I try to sew. Oh yes! I also learnt that doing a straight stitch on stretch fabric is bad when you're trying to keep the stretch.
On another note, I still have to get a bag...... Yeah!!!! Op-shopping!!!!
Yohohoho!!! (Posted 25th April 2013)
I have done it!!!!!
Whooo!! (Posted 15th April 2013)
I've actually gone ahead and painted the bandana! I know.... I can hardly believe it myself. I tried using fabric paint, but it turned out really pale, so I switched to acrylic which is soooo much better.
And I've actually worked on the top, although I've almost had to completely rebuild it from scratch. But I'm doing something!!!!!

I officially have no idea what I'm doing. I found a really nice red shirt, which happenned to be too big for me, so today I shredded it up by taking the sleeves out.I'm hoping I can pin it into the right shape and re-sew it, but I haven't had much luck with that in the past. I probably won't be able to move in it by the time I'm done. I must remember not to pin it super close.
The bandana hasn't progressed at all. I drew out the pattern and tried it on, but the fabric overlaps, so you can't see most of it anyway.
I will think of something.
Bandana (Posted 8th January 2013)
