Well done on your first ever gloves. Officially gloves are difficult to make - Yours look really good! :)

Thank you, I still have to attach a thumb at somepoint :-S

^_^ oh thats why the thumb isnt in the photo.. Ah well - tip when cutting holes in stretch lycra..cut them smaller than you think as the hole enlarges when you put the garment on.. Yes, I hope to see you at LFCC. :)

Thanks guys, unfortunately I'm going to have to start the bodysuit again from scratch as I've too may problems with compensating for the fabric being difficult to work with:( Moved back to October expo now

Yay! Some of my photos were useful :-) You looked fab as always! You make an awesome phoenix but I think you'll always be the definitive Rogue in my head :-)

Mk 2

So I've started from scratch on the bodysuit and I'm now at exactly the place where I was before but without any fraying YAAAAAAAAAY!!!

I've added a zip (my first zip) to avoid the fabric over stretching when you put it on.

Just need to add the sleeves and the collar to the bodysuit and then attach the boots and gloves and then it is done!!!

4th July 2011


Having to put this back now as when I had to make alterations to counter the issues I've had with the delicate fabric, it now doesn't look right at all. Everything I've done to try and compensate just results in a fail!

Going to start again from scratch (with lessons learned) and have it ready for October Expo!
