Crappy satin mock-up ftw. (Posted 2nd May 2013)

Tonight’s endeavour - Bit dodgy because one side isn’t tacked up yet, I need to alter both the front and back neckline into v-shapes and shorten the shoulders, but it’s working out. I know they don’t feature on Morgana’s, but the curves of the princess seams down the front look really nice, so I might keep them in and have the blue outerdress follow the same lines. And the train looks super princessy! :D

Success down Goldhawk Road. (Posted 30th April 2013)

First round of fabric shopping for Morgana, for May Expo:
* The pattern is one I already had from way back when, with Merida in mind, and should pass, with a few modifications.
* The most gorgeous colour-changy blue and purple chiffon that I am positively in love with for the outer dress.
* Obligatory action figure ;)
* Gold lace for the sleeves, which legitimately look like medieval arm-warmers.
* Black and gold beaded trim possibly for the arm cuffs, but I don’t know if I like it enough.
* Crappy purple satin to make a mock-up of the under dress. I have my eye on some perfect fabric - Just need to work out the logistics of my pattern first!
Hoping to make a start within the next couple of days - Really looking forward to this :D
