Condition: Not Set

19th August 2009: The Dress aaaaaaauuuuuuuggggghhhhhhhhh Well Ada's dress is nearlly finished but aaaaaaaaaaauuuuuuggggghhhhhhh what a time i've had with it
1st i had cut the front panel way too short compared with the rest of the dress
2nd when i had pined it all together i thought all i had to do was just do a little alteration with it as the pattern said on it up to size 18 .... was it fairy cakes i couldn't even get it over my hips, but thankfully the back was near enough straight so i was able to cut out 2 more back panels and put them in, but that made the top half of my back way too big, so my mum helped me put darts in it so now it fits ok
then 3rdly trying to sew the thing together and to make the shape for the front was just evil
but the most evilest thing to do was to get that stupid, (did i mention evil) zip in it took something like 3 or 4 goes D:

now i have just tacked the collar on so all i need to do now is sew that properly and then turn up the bottom hem.

4th August 2009: Shoes done Well sadly the dye didn't actually work all it did was make them go a darker blue so thanks to some advice i got some black paint and painted them and they seem to have taken to it quite well.

My dress is almost finished too all i need to do now is sew on the facings and collar then turn up the bottom hem and attach the Zip and the hooks and eyes. and my wig has also come so everything is nearlly done

19th July 2009: All Layed out well today i got my fabric through from ebay and i decided to start making the dress today it was just placing and cutting out the pattern and tomorrow comes the what will be either the fun part or the nightmare (A nightmare if it doesn't fit)

I also checked my shoes tonight and they are still soaking wet and they still look kind of blue so i think i might buy some paint for them on wednesday just in case.

17th July 2009: Im Dying Yes that's right dying ..... my shoes for Ada XD well it was fun getting completely covered in black fabric dye. what was most annoying is that we had no hot water which i needed so i had to keep filling up the kettle and boiling it that way but they are done now and hopefully they will have gone black and if not i will just do what others have said to try and that is paint ^^ in a way i hope it works so i dont have to buy any more paint but in a way i hope it doesnt just so then i have an excuse to get covered in paint XD i m such a child.

14th June 2009: So nearly done :) Well at the moment i have the pattern to make Ada's dress .... but no material, i have the shoes .... but they need painting so these are stuff i'm going to be working on over the summer, got some leggings ..... but just noticed that they're a little too short :( however they may have to do as it's hard to find them to fit exactly like hers in my size. Also i was able to find a black belt so what is normally the hardest thing to find for me i was able to get first LOL so hopefully soon i'll be able to get the material to make her dress.
