So, I've made many an outfit in my day. But HOLY HELL this one may eat me! I'm only a third of the way into it and I've already used 14 yards of fabric. I still have to make a petticoat/tulled underskirt, detail the bodice, pleat in the skirts(there's three of them), hem said skirts, and make sleeves that defy logic and reason. Oh yeah, FYI, doing Queen Serenity from Sailormoon. Amanda you know this proves I love you right? Cause, french-seaming 9+ yards of organza makes me weep.
Steampunk is still missing a hat and belt and front closures and busk and bias tape, but I'm just done with it for now. Yes this means I'm falling behind...HOWEVER, I did tint/style Sakujun's wig, so I'm down a wig for next month. Doesn't make it even, but does make it less.
I'm sorta costuming myself out I think. Next year so not going to kill myself over costumes again. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Who really believed that?
