And this is why I let my rayon/Lycra mix maxi dress hang for 24 hours: I cut off 5.5”! Hemming in progress.
#sewingprogress #hemming

Coming together!! It’s going to be hemmed soon! I also am going to have to get an invisible zipper, because the waistband I chose to make didn’t end up working. :P This whole process has gone a lot faster than what I thought, my childhood memories of sewing involved lots and lots of tediousness. But I was super impatient back then, and couldn’t sit still for anything, so that’s probably why! #sewingprogress #sewingproject #fashiondesign #selfdrafted #skirtinprogress

I am taking a break from Perona to make Flareon for Aikon, but here is my last wip from a couple weeks ago.

Mock up of the Vanessa Ives dress! I need to make a few more changes to the bodice darts, which you can't see here. But I think the silhouette is nice. I started off this project as an 1880's project, then it became an 1890's project. So I'm really not certain what I'm doing at this point. If it's not historically correct I'm gonna play it off as cosplay. 😅

This cosplay gave me the chance to learn a new skill, prosthetic making! I never made one before but I had a blast and definitely want to do it again in the future!
.
So this was a long process. It took me weeks with all the drying times and having the time for the long processes. So the first part was definitely the most stressful. I had to get my entire face covered in plaster to get a mold of my head to work off of. Luckily @proppedupcosplay was kind enough to help me. It took us quite a few hours, but eventually I looked like a mummy. After that dried, we were able to free my head.
.
With the head mold ready, I filled it with cement to create a bust of my head. Unfotunately, this was my first time using concrete. I didn't mix it right and you can actually see how all the layers of concrete were different mixtures. Luckily the head worked well enough to finish this sculpt but it does after opening the final mold so I'll have to do it again someday.
.
The next part was the clay sculpt. This took a while to get right, but I'm happy with the result. There are things I would fix if I did it again but overall I'm happy. That clay sculpting class really came in handy. When making the mold this time, I actually learned what a good cement mixture was and the mold was a lot better. .
Finally, I cleaned the mold and ran it in Latex. The first run had a few rough patches but the second one is already looking better. Can't wait to paint it tonight! I'm really excited to be trying it on. Hopefully application goes well! .
Tune in at 5pm EST for a live stream with @caketastrophe_cosplay and I as we paint our faces and I apply this piece!

In the process of adding button bands to this amazing @megannielsenpatterns Matilda dress! 😍 Isn’t the fabric just too amazing for words? This is my next project for the @minervacrafts Blogger Network and it may be my favorite one so far! 👌🏻💚
————————————
I’m sewing away in-between dyeing yarn. The color takes a bit to set, and while I wait it’s the perfect time to get a few other things done. Swipe to see one colorway I did this morning. I am in LOVE with how it turned out! ❤️❤️❤️💙 .

My current project is the Vanessa Ives cosplay I'm working on. I'm often conflicted about whether I want to make a cosplay or historic costume and this tackles both. This is an image of the actual dress from when it went to auction so I have plenty of good reference photos. I'm hopeful that this will be my gala gown for costume college 😁. I will be using a silk taffeta rather than a duchess satin, because I want to use natural fibre but I also can't afford satin. I am making my mock up in poly satin though. So there's that. 🙃

#V9251 Progress! Last night I finished the skirt hem and stitched the bodice and skirt together. Today I added these little ruffle flutter sleeves and worked on ties but I just can’t figure out them out! (The ties are only pinned on in this photo haha.) I may just figure out my own method for the ties. Up next: 1) roll hem the neckline 2) figure out ties and 3) oh I hope I don’t have to, but shorten the skirt if it’s still too long! (I’ve already cut 3” off the pattern!) .
