26th May 2011: Progress, hooray. So, after the horrendous bright yellow material that the sewing machine ate up, I'm onto my second attempt, and have finished the sleeves. Still need to be closed up at the bottom, and before that, actually attached to the rest of the kimono, but I need to make the rest of it first. >_> Entirely hand-sewn because OH GOD THE SEWING MACHINE IS TERRIFYING.
Unfortunately, I'm liking the colour I picked for this less and less every time I look at it.
My wig also arrived today, but until I stop sucking at taking photos of myself wearing it, there will be no photos.
