28th July 2013: insert title here Okay, so I started working on this yesterday and I should be as finished as I can be by tomorrow!
I bought blue satin bias for the jacket, which took to it very nicely, the colors compliment each other very well! Had a bit of issues with the collar as usual, but it all got on in the end! I ended up being lazy and not sewing both sides of the bias anywhere except for the lapels so I may need to use so glue to keep the corners down...otherwise it looks pretty good!
Also started and finished the neckbow today. Damn long parts gave me hell! I bought more satin for this just to match the ribbon more that will be on the hat...so much fraying while I was trying to sew. Sigh. But it worked out! I'll need to attach the bow to the neck wrap a bit better once I wear it proper, looks awkward else @_@
And 5 minutes before writing this thing I cut up the "tears" in the skirt! I just need to make belt loops and do some adjusting, then that should be done too! And that will be everything until my hat comes in the mail, then I'll just add the ribbon to that and keep it attached with my rose clip (that I am stealing from my Imitation Black Len, bwaha)
