26th October 2010: Dress Progress *Just to show I am making progress lol*
What my dress looks like at the moment. All the peices of fabric are just pinned on atm which is why it looks a bit funny lol Need to also sew on the sleeves and cut & hem the bottom as its too long. Oh and hand-sew the big stitches...fun xD
Also need to add the black circles to the blue, black swirls to the top pink part, black stripes on the dark pink/red park and lines on the bottom pink park. Seems like a lot but ive got everything under control...I hope ^^'
The dress shape is not accurate to Sally's as well my original more accurate pattern just looked awful on me >.< So ive used a dress pattern that i'm more comfortable in, I'm hoping it won't matter too much ^^' Also I know some of the colours don't match but I just had to work with what I could find so yeah lol
12th October 2010: Update & Boots! Okay much needed update~
Dress is in progress =) I'm basing it off of reference pictures from the movie as well as my own interpritations (looks different in EVERY picture I find -_-)
I'm making the base dress first using a bought pattern then once ive got the dress shape how I want it i'm going to sew the various peices of fabric on top.
I hope it goes how I want it to ^^'
I have Boots! Saw these on ebay and thought they would look pretty good, great price too. I had to remove these silver clasp things they had on them but apart from that I love them xD I got some stripy black and white leg warmers as well instead of using socks as these are longer and fit better over the boots =)
Will hopefully be ordering the wig tonight as well. Still need to do the make-up test which i'm not looking forward to...not yet sure if i should go for a white look or more pale blue..we shall see. I'm hoping to use actual thread for the stitches on my face too~
