20th July 2013: Applique to start Cut out the applique and to be sewn onto the top. It's going okay, needs a good bit of neatening up but it's easier than Ion's right now.
20th July 2013: Black top The black top is on it's way! I need to cut out the applique pattern for the front of the top. The pink bias has been cut and will be ready to add once the applique is done.
I plan on cutting some more black as lining with interfacing between the two layers, then all the edges in pink. That in essence will be Arietta's outfit. I've decided if the boots aren't done, I'm changing them to leg warmers but right now they're still boots.
17th July 2013: Grey top 80% completed The grey top is almost finished, I need to buy a new zip the right length to sew it in, aiming to finish the last bit of the pink edging soon and starting on the top layer. After that just 5 belts to make, the hat and the boots.
13th July 2013: Skirt is 90% complete! So I finished off Arietta's skirt today, attached the grey to the black skirt. There is a 6 inch gap at the front. I'm not 100% pleased with how it looks but I'm pleased enough to keep it for now. Just need to add the zip and the skirt closure, take out the white tacking thread and it'll be done!
The arm warmers was made on Monday/Wednesday, I need to make the belts for them. But as I need 5 identical belts, I'll make the top and hat first. I've started the boots, not entirely happy with how it's gone but it's going okay so far.
