Coat Part 3 (Posted 1st September 2010)

Ok! Today I made the Cuffs and Sewed them on. Then I tailored the back a little and tyhe saddle to let it fit a bit more comfily on the hsoulders. I also added in shoulderpads .. caus the shouldershape isnt great on its own.... its .. only just ok with the pads XDD

I also started making the front panel.. I've fnished one... need to do the other tomorrow.

Coat part 2 (Posted 31st August 2010)

Ok, so today I added the sleeves.. and.. teh collar.. aaaaaand I cut the bottom to proper length.

I'm a little worried I've messed up teh back on it.. because the collar seems wrong... It bunches up a tad at the back .. .so It seems I'll have to model it on someone and draw where it needs sewing into and stuff to make it.. un.. bunchy? ((its unbunchy a word?))

I'mma get to work on my embelishments tomorrow = 3 make it look pretty...

and tailor it..

Coat Part 1 (Posted 30th August 2010)

Well.. today I started making the coat.

I made it miles too big.
So I'm swamped in jacket atm! but that'll be fixed tomorrow. I mean.. all I need to do is Undo a couple of stitches, Stitch some more and snip a bit off.

Its too late to be taking pictures.. but I can tell you now that todays work alone has added another 7 hours on... XD

it'll be fun trying to tailor it tomorrow~ XDDD;;;;;

First Day of making (Posted 27th August 2010)

Ok Ok. Today I did the Ruff and the Waist Coat. Couldn't have done it without Emzone's help though - she fixed my Sewing machine!!! FAIL THREAD TENSION!!

So that was today...
I can't do any more tomorrow... as I'm working .. or the day after, so it'll be Monday before I can make the pattern for the coat. Though, I'm looking for a wig right now to use for Jack. I'll have to invest in some Clay and some earing backs that I can use for his earings. I'll have to head to the Bead shop at Afflex in Manchester for it, see if there are any beads or wether I could use clay. They Wont be hard to paint.

I'm worried about doing the coat though <,< It was hard enough doing the Waist coat... Mind you, It was a lot easier after my machine was fixed... so It will probably be a lot better.

The Ruff I made looks really nice. I'm glad. I just have to make sure it doesnt get damaged seeing as its made of Silk...

The Dutchess Satin I'm using for the cuffs should be intresting to sew, considering its actually quite thick... I'm hoping it wont flop. ... I did find some padding/stiff stuff made from a cottonywire material that'll hopfully make it a lot eaiser to stay up. I have enough for the cuffs and the Lapel of the Coat!

The Wig'll be fun if I have to get an extention clip for it... hopfully I can just plat a reaaaally long one. I KNOW THEY'RE OUT THERE SOMEWHERE!!!!

* goes off to find them*
