Soooo I dyed this unitard last night, and then had a minor bout of panic because the box said “taupe” but the unitard after just a minute in the dye (it was supposed to be in the dye bath for 30 minutes!) it was super dark, so I pulled it out and rinsed it furiously, and hung it to dry, hoping for a small miracle.
As you can see the dye did dry a lot lighter, thankfully. Not light enough, though. How do I go about making the bib lighter? Will paint actually do the trick? Do I go the Misto route and give her a fluffy light bib? Halp.

So. Much. Crisscrossing. And. Hatching.

I finished the last bit of brown and started hatching today! I both love and hate hatching, because I love doing all the scribbling, but I’m not particularly good at it, so I get awkward joins and splotches. I have a feeling if my mannequin could stand this would be a whole lot easier.

Replaced the black ribbon with a blue one!

I cannot. I have lost the ability to can.
I swear, Katie is a goddess. Hoooly crap.

It’s looking remarkably like clothing considering it was flat uncut cloth 15 hours ago.  And now I sleep.

So much pretty I can&#8217;t even. &lt;3 Eeee!

Tomorrow I’ll be doing final fit adjustment, installing the corset back and drafting some sleeves.

This was as much fluff as I could be bothered to cut up and fray for now. :P
Still a long way to go, but at least it&#8217;s starting to look like something!

Skirt for my Mad Hatter all done! Made with copious amounts of help from my friend Karen - she did all of the actual sewing. <3

It has large in-seam pockets, so I’ll be able to carry around my camera, phone, money and suchlike at conventions without having to carry a handbag! :D

Wore my vest with it just to see how it’d look, and this model is definitely way too short. Must ask Shadow to make the vest long in the torso, so it covers the waistband of the skirt :)
