Cloak: Lined.

Lined the cloak. Was probably the most difficult part for me.

21st October 2011

Capelet Lining Finished

Done!

 
18th October 2011

Capelet Lining

Lined the capelets. The lining is too small and the other bits are too big, so I sewed darts along the edge of the larger pieces to have them meet up neatly with the lining.

 
18th October 2011

Middle Back Seam

Middle back seam of the main cloak panels are sewn together, seam is almost invisible which pleases me.

9th October 2011

Waistcoat Pattern

Drafted. Decided to make my cloak before making this, since the pattern pieces I need for the cloak are bigger.

Scrapped because I've been offered a sewing pattern to borrow in order to make the waistcoat.

 
9th October 2011

Trying to figure out how to modify sewing pattern...

For the Inverness Cloak. I scrapped the idea of using a free sewing pattern online and purchased a pattern from America to modify.

Info~

Trousers

Bought.

 
26th September 2011

Lovebite Fangs...

They arrived! Seeing how they look on me~

 
22nd September 2011

Waiscoat Interfacing, Vampire Fangs, Cloak Sewing Pattern

Light Interfacing's arrived, which means I can get moving on my waistcoat pattern and draft it, and finish the entire thing.

I've also purchased a sewing pattern for the cloak, because it seems far too difficult without one, and I've gone and purchased the vampire fangs.

I only need the walking stick and white jeans, the bats are an optional addition!

 
21st September 2011

Heavy Interfacing

Arrived. Now to make the pattern for my Inverness Cloak.

 
18th September 2011

fffffff!!

I actually got lucky at Barnardos! Because I volunteer there I get 20% discount, and they actually had a lovely grey and white striped t-shirt that I could use for Halloween England! :)

This has been sitting in my wardrobe for a while, I forgot to photograph it when I first bought it.

Should I use this hat?

I did end up using it, but I posted this on Facebook to ask people if I should.
