15th July 2011: So... The penny loafers arrived and they're perfect, just had to pick up some brown shoe polish and protective spray~
Can anyone hazard a guess at what I'll be doing over the next day or two? :P
12th July 2011: Dress progress So I cut out most of the dress pieces the other day only to run out of fabric just as I had one piece left to cut! FFFFFFUUUU so I had to order more fabric :< luckily it arrived today though so I made a start on the sewing.
Here's what the dress looks like so far~
It's still rather big around the waist and I haven't even sewn in the back panels yet :/ will add the zip to the back panels before sewing them in and then I'll just take it all in at the end. Then it's just a matter of the collar and the ribbon-y stuffs
12th July 2011: Dress-ness A-woot~
Added the zip and back panels and have taken it in evenly all the way around the waist
Just need to make the collar, decide on what to do with the arm-holes and finally add the ribbon-y bits and diamonds :3
10th July 2011: Bow Shoes got shipped out today, should be here in the next few days~
Here's the bow for the front of the shirt :D
9th July 2011: More stuffs Made a start on the dress today, been cutting out the pieces. Totally restarting the shirt as well as I found a semi-stretch cotton which will work much better. Made the bow for the front of the shirt though, looks super cute and I wanna wear it all the time :3
Just bought some penny loafers as well since they work well as Japanese school girl shoes, the cheapest ones I could find were red though so I'm gonna have to take some brown shoe polish to them and hope it works :P
Anyways, off to shower and then continue cutting out the dress~
27th June 2011: Wig~ Finally got my wig :3
I need to cut the bangs to frame my face and I'll need to perfect how to wear it as it comes in quite a few pieces, but otherwise yay~
11th June 2011: Eartips~ Eartips arrived :D
As with all new eartips, I wanna wear them forever!
10th June 2011: Late to the party Ok so after attempting the shirt in poly cotton I decided that it's not going to look the way I want it to look so I'm gonna try to get some other fabric with a bit of stretch to it
In the meantime I've ordered some medium/heavy weight cotton lycra for the dress and my eartips. I ordered my wig as well, prestyled just to make my life a bit easier, so here's hoping that it arrives as nice as the photo!
24th April 2011: Shirt times Made a start on the shirt tonight, but it's so hard to make fitted things out of non-stretch fabric that needs to go over the head to wear it D:
Anyways, made a base of white, will try to put some darts in it tomorrow and add the lilac over the top so it's not too see-through. Made the collar tonight though so I feel at least a little accomplished :P
20th April 2011: Stuff! I broke my bank account today TT^TT
I had to buy a ridiculous amount of fabric for my final uni project so while I was out I went and got some lilac and white for the shirt. Couldn't find the right fabric/colours I wanted for the dress so I'll probably have to order those :< oh wells~
So yeah, got the ball rolling very early for once
