I have been really bummed lately and I honestly had no desire to sew today, but I dragged myself to sewing machine anyway. I do want to get this project finished up in time. The only things I will not have is the proper wig, shoes, and the bra. However, this is a kid friendly event so I don't need a green bra hanging out. I will be buttoned up.
So from noon until almost midnight I was cutting and sewing. I was able to actually make the skirt with the green lining. It's ridiculously tight because I am not used to working with wet look stretch knit but that's okay by me. I am really happy I got the lining to work. It just need the waist band, but by time I got the hem finished it was 8:14pm. I try very hard to not sew at night because my machine can be heard upstairs. I also need to add the button detail.
|Oh that green lining!|
So I moved on to cutting my fabric for the skirt. I am using the pattern from my Bewitched shirt (and skirt actually). The shirt pattern is a zippered collar shirt with long sleeves. Bombshell Black Canary is a button down collar shirt with short puffy sleeves. To add to the fun it's plaid and I have never worked with plaid. So fingers crossed I cut it correctly, but I won't know until next weekend. I do need to figure out how I am going to create the canary's on the collar. I cannot find a proper applique so of course I will need to make something.
|This is actually very clean for me when I sew.|
I also finished off the rose for the hair. I do need to make the earrings. I also need to make the belt.
