feymeggan: (what happened)
 So, got the dremmel up and going, got my lengths of boning ground down.  I'm awesome right?  Not quite, managed to FUBAR to things that told me to just put Amy down and walk away.  One, went to all the trouble of carefully measuring and pinning on the lace...only to hack it three inches too short.  Solution?  Bang head repeatedly on the wall, rip off the lace and reapply it when not a moron.  Two, while getting the dremmel set up I let the skirt brush against the machine...which low and behold was storing a lovely globule of oil just waiting for such a moment!  So now I have a sewing machine oil stain riiiiiiiiiiiight on my ass.  Lovely.  I shall be testing a few stain removal options on some scrap tomorrow, wish me luck.

However, even with these setbacks I'm nearly done with her outfit.  I've finished the sleeves, garters, all the components of her necklace and gotten her dress/top fully pinned together.  Next I shall sew the top pieces together, reapply the lace, and hopefully get the stain out prior to hemming the light purple layer.  Which had I been smart I should have French seamed that sucker.  Oh well, live and learn and do shit the hard way.  But yay for being on schedule!  

Up for next month:
Amanda's Neo Queen Serenity(this outfit scares the beejesus out of me!)
Wigging out! IE Amy's wig, Kouchou's wig, Sakujuns wig
And if I still have time/sanity
Red Mars Elissa 

Pray for me internets.
