Progress Journal

12th October 2013

Change of plan

Decided against snap fasteners as the process of measuring where to place them wasn't fun. Instead I'll sew the collar to the dress at the shoulders, so I should still be able to be zipped up fine ^^

5th October 2013

Collar issues

Still working on my collar. Gona add snap fasteners to secure it to my dress (will be hidden underneath).

30th September 2013

Collar pattern done

Make a practice collar, not interfaced. Here's a photo of my pattern. Collar with real fabric next! ^^

23rd September 2013

Progess!

Fixing my back sizing was surprisingly fast. I still used my practice zip to be sure, then replaced it with my proper zip. I'm currently working on my collar paper pattern, got the front done. I've been fiddling with interfacing too.

14th September 2013

Skirt part done. Back issues

Skirt all sewn to bodice with folds. But somehow, the middle of my bodice back is way too big. Only the middle. OTL *sigh* Means more re-sizing my back just like my Sakura Epilogue dress. I'm going to use a spare white invisible zip while I re-size it. I know from experience if I repeatedly sew an invisible zip into a bodice as I re-size it several times, it will wear away the zip and it won't be as strong. So the white one will be used until my back is sized correctly and then I'll insert my navy invisible zip.

Also attempting to draft collar at the same time. I'll be making a draft collar with practice fabric as can't rick messing up my main taffeta fabric with the first draft.

26th August 2013

Skirt nearly sewn together

Sewed the skirt panels together today. Just need to connect the front and back panels. Then, I'll need to pin the bodice into that "V" shape and fiddle with my skirt to have folds like in the ref ^^

24th August 2013

Sleeves Done

Finally finished both sleeves today. Monday starting skirt part of dress. Work is really eating into my cosplay time XD As expected.

5th August 2013

Slowly Slowly

Finally starting real sleeves after making my practice one. This needs to be sewn properly (pinned at the sleeve seam right now) and ironed neatly.

12th July 2013

Started sleeves

I'm making a practice sleeve/wrist area before using my real fabric. I want to be 100% happy with the "diamond" shape before moving onto real fabric ^^

7th July 2013

Bodice Lined

Wow this is my first cosplay to go over the £100 mark *_*" And quite a bit has gone to wig and ears XD Its worth it for accuracy though :) Lined my bodice today. Its longer than necessary so I can cut it to the V shape like in the ref.

21st June 2013

Finally starting! ^_^

Bought more fabric/stuff needed. Will cut out fabric and start on the bodice soon. Decided to not use boning in bodice (though might use some on the shoulder thingy to keep it upright). Lining the bodice is gona be boring >_<

23rd May 2013

Not starting yet

Wow this has been sitting here a while!! I'm not ready to begin this cosplay as I'm juust finishing off my Sakura (TRC) Epilogue cosplay. I'll need to make a draft bodice as I've never worked with boning before :s

28th April 2012

A bit of early planning

I'm gona do some early planning, a few rough sketches & a pattern check. I think I can use patterns I've already bought. Probably won't start making this until end of this year/beginning of 2013 ^^ Just adore this dress!!
