Progress! (Posted 6th February 2014)
I've spent much more on this than I thought I would. And with Kita getting closer and not having started this I'm getting a little panicky!
Got most of my fabric from Shepherds Bush(I miss Leeds and their cheap fabric shops ;n;) I just need to get the skirt fabric online.
Bought my Wig and that's arrived in Leeds, won't get it until I next go back.
Bought patterns from Amazon! So once they arrive I'll start on the shirt, Shirt deadline is the 16th, skirt is the 23rd, Corset is the 2nd and the cape is the 9th. One week per item but I think I can get it done! I'll just have to make sure I get on with Uni work this weekend. Then from the 9th-26th it's embroidery time!
I bought gold vinyl for the boots, thinking I could cut it out into a pattern and glue it onto them, but when it arrived it turns out the vinyl has a sticky back anyway! I was so happy~ I also bought plastic sheets to cut out embroidery stencils from. Plastic doesn't tear easier, fold or rumple like paper does.
