18th October 2014: Outfit bits complete Did the finishing bits on the waistcoat today, which despite breaking two of my sewing machine needles came together fairly easily in the end. I'm debating whether or not to just use some similar shoes I have for this costume rather than buying totally new shoes as I didn't really want the expense of that for something that is only really a casual costume. The necklace is actually fashioned from a curtain ring which I still had a pack of lying around from making Elise.
15th October 2014: ACTUAL progress, what? Okay, so I got hella busy and then distracted by other things so this costume kept getting put back. Anyway, I've finally got around to starting the waistcoat today and it's almost all sewn up - just need to finish the fitting on it and do a little more hemming. After that it's just figuring out what to do with the shoes - if possible I'd like to just make boot covers for some existing shoes I already have but we'll see.
7th July 2014: the start I've managed to find enough black fabric left over from another project for his waistcoat, so cut that out today. The necklace ring is actually a curtain ring that I already had a set of leftover from Elise. Shouldn't take me long to put together and then it's just making the boot covers which is probably going to be the trickiest part of this costume.
