Kapow! bodice is a go-go (Posted 5th July 2013)
So in my last journal I was umm-ing and ahh-ing about how bland it all looked. Well today my mums school got a donation of scrap material and she bought some home for me, in goody bag was some gold and ivory brocade. Expensive looking stuff, matches with my previous material perfectly and it looks amazing~ without being in your face. i've got a few appliqués coming in the mail just to see what i can do with them.
I did a thing (Posted 30th June 2013)
My hoop skirt arrived, and it turns out the petticoat I made for Esmeralda fits over it perfectly. Rad. So I pinned my material into a dress to see id have enough to make it. Probably i still don't know. It looks kind Blah and bland to me its not very impressive, so i'm gotta try and figure out whats gonna me it look amazing. I'm leaning towards brocade and sparkles.
