9th July 2011: Wig cut Not much progress trolololol. BUT IT'S SOMETHING.
I miss styling wigs, not in a fabric mood, figured I'd cut some wigs!
Yeah, basically cut in a fringe. I want to cut in some side bangs to frame my face better but Asuka doesn't have any ;^; When I wear this wig for Shirley I'll cut some in and I will be happy again~
Time Taken: 10mins XD
26th December 2009: 26/12/2009 - More dress progress Wow, it has apparently been a whole month since I worked on this! Doesn't seem that long ago tbh xD;;
This time round I have pictures and have done the modifications I said I would do in my previous entry.
I've made it fit better, although I literally hacked the bodice small and re-sewed on the skirt to achieve this loool, which is why the time taken bit is far longer than it should have been. I've also hemmed it and gave the bodice the 'V'-shape look.
Cannot be bothered to sew on the straps - because that would involve fishing around fabric piles to look for spare yellow fabric which I cannot be bothered to do :'D
Time Taken - 1hr 30mins
P.S. Please excuse the mess on the table, haven't tidied up from Christmas yet >o>;;
P.S.S. In the picture the skirt isn't hemmed yet. I took the picture when I was trying it on to see if the bodice fit properly and thought I may as well take a picture as well to save me from trying it on again :'D
27th November 2009: 26/11/2009 - Dress Well well well, I decided to do some sewing again. The bulk of yellow fabric was annoying me, so I decided to hack it up and turned it into a simple dress. Because the fabric is rather thin I had to double layer the torso, thankfully I had already done this when I made my Mitsuki dress so yipee! Less work for me! Course it's shaped differently so I'll have to fix that later, I can't be bothered now xD;
The dress part was also double layered but I didn't think it was necessary so I cut out four panels and sewed them together to make a circular skirt (fabric was already in dress shape so I couldn't make a proper circle skirt the usual way!). I'm undecided as to whether or not to buy some lining or not, we'll see. For this reason I am leaving it unhemmed for the time-being.
All that's left to do is make the straps and add them on with the bows and as I said previously, shape the bodice into a V shape and hem the skirt.
Time Taken: 45mins-1hr
Costs: £4p/m I think???? Can't remember!

Aah, Eva is one of my most favourite anime so I can't wait to see this, especially if you do a violin performance as her in the Omake =D

Ahh, I'm going to be a bit of a failure and not going to do a violin performance anymore. Mainly because I can't be bothered to practise XD;;; Song I have in mind isn't one I can just sight read and perform (not that I do that anyway LOL) because it's rather challenging! I hope to do it some day though :)
But thanks for the support! I hope I do her justice~
