  • Mood:

well.. I feel kind of accomplished!

I finished peicing together the bodice tonight. I still need to peice together the lining, but that shouldn't take long at all.
I don't know.. I'm still not 100% happy with the neck line.. but I'm a lot happier with it than it was before. I think it sits kinda funny.. but that might just be because I'm having issues sizing the damn thing. I would put the zipper in, but I'm not putting the zipper in until I put the lining on. I want it to have a really clean, finished look, both inside and out... which means the lining goes on first. Then the zipper. Besides.. I don't know how to put zippers in! ( I wonder if I even bought one for the dress, yet... )
In any case, the bodice is pretty much finished. I need to cut out the sleeves, though. I still need to experiment, b/c I'm having to modify the old sleeve pattern from the old dress, and it's ALLL messed up. It shouldn't take too long to get straightened out, but I don't feel like messing with it today. Maybe tomorrow. If Ringo makes it over, I'll have her help me size everything, and then help get started on the skirt! Mwah!
I really wanted to call a freind of mine today. He seemed kind of down about Valentine's.. and I wanted to try and cheer him up, but my cel phone (with his cel number in it) was dead T..T Sorry Jeff.. I really was going to call you!!!
More dress stuff~~
I need to pull out the skirt pattern and see how this silly thing is supposed to be assembled. I can do the cutaway pattern with another panel of satin.. and I'm thinking about finding a layer of patterned chiffon/organza/somthing to put there that will match the brocade, but look softer& more subdued. I'm thinking a nice gauzy material would do it. IT woudlnt' even need a pattern, really. (Maybe some gold sparklies.. whee!) But, then, I wouldn't have to modify the pattern, and it would make the dress more interesting in the front. I still need to re-design the back.. but I'm not sure what I can do yet. Someone needs to close it up while I'm in it.. and then we can cut it as low as my corset goes.
I think I may want to cut the front neckline down some, too. Shoudlnt' be a problem, right? XD


    Yaaaay! The con is over! Time to get ready for the next one! Sometimes, twitter just cannot contain all the things I want to say about a subject.…

  • Oh wow, I haven't blogged in forever!

    I kind of forget about Livejournal now. It feels so empty that I've joined a bunch of communities, but it's not really helping! Since November,…

  • November is almost over already?!?!

    I've really enjoyed not having anything important to do for a while. I've been cleaning (a little bit), quilting (a lot, but in short bursts), and…
