26th October 2014: Progress Last time I attempted April (which must have been in 2008/2009, I think), I went about it the completely wrong way - I used cheap fabrics, and instead of making a mock-up I dove in and ended up with a mess that in the end, I had enough of and chucked away. Now that I've got several more years of sewing experience under my belt, I'm ready to give April another try.
This time, I'm making a mock-up out of calico. I've got some lovely bright yellow gaberchino fabric to use for my final version, which I'm looking forward to using!
I've also received my wig in the post (the fringe needs trimming), and my boots are on order. I'll have to make boot-covers, but I've done that before so that shouldn't be a problem.
