Thwarted

 So, at first I figured money would be my enemy this month.  I would have to get all this fabric, which I wasn't budgeted for, but no, I found everything I needed in the dungeon.  Then I thought boning would do me in, but no, I can get i locally.  Then I realized what would do me in...the stupid busk.  The place I normally order from is completely off-line right now, and I don't have another supplier I've used and trusted.  That's the kicker, I could find another supplier, but I don't trust easily, and I've used my current one for nearly a decade now.

However, there's at least progress.  I've got my corset cut out, ready for assembly.  I've all the fabric for the Steampunk set except the belt materials, but that's not the hard part.  I need to draft up the hat, pants and bodice, but can't do two of the three until the corset is done and on so I can take measurements.  Amanda's is in the drafting stage, but I have all the material...and more extra organza I've no idea what I was doing with.  So this month's goals may take me down, but I'm determined!  And if all else fails I'll do wigwork, bleh.

#Edit#
Too lazy to make a new post.  So, corset is as done as it can be ATM, need a busk and need to decide on the color of the binding for the top, but can't put that on until the busk is in.  However, it's assembled enough to allow for fittings and measurements.  In light of that I've drafted up the pants...god how I hate making pants...and have them cut out and ready for assembly tomorrow.  Assuming that works out the bodice shall be drafted shortly thereafter and I shall get cracking on that.  I'm torn as to whether or not I want to do a jacket with this outfit.  Part of me says HELL YES ANOTHER MINIJACKET!! and yet another part says MOAR WORK??!  So we shall see.  Which reminds me, I need to find a place to get the closures I want for the bodice, I believe they're sold more for purse clasps, but I think they'd be smashing front hooks as well....
