15th November 2013: New Sleeves 1 Due to the nature of the organza, after the beating the cosplay took after Ayacon, the fabric ended up fraying and tearing a little which is not good! So this time I’ve double-layered the fabric and will over-lock the edges in hopes it reduces the fray (I may also see about using some ‘non fray’ glue on the edges for extra safety).
Also, in the DVD version of the Coppelia dress, there are little flowers on the sleeves. I was thinking about embroidering them on, but changed my mind since I was worried too many stitches would cause holes in the delicate organza. So instead, I made little blossoms out of some leftover lace. Cut the pieces together into five-petal flowers and stitched them to the sleeves. I think they look quite cute!
