*Trim height on boots, add suede cuffs+ rattail loops for garter belt
*Make strap for quiver, trim quiver with some gold embellishments, make the bottom, stuff with foam to hold kid's suction cup arrows
*Make placard for front of tunic, and sew MILLIONS OF BUTTONS onto it
*Make armstrap thing for tunic
And really, that's it! But the last one is a doozy. The front has circular cutouts which are supposed to be trimmed in the same color trim as everything else. I bought bias tape for that, but I have no idea how it's going to work out yet. I've been putting that off for now :P
The boots are starting to look pretty good! It is a mystery to me as to how to get a snug fit on the heel. Even when I'm careful about drafting my pattern, there's always a little extra at the heel like that. (Note.. it only happens on shapes where I need a heel cutout, like here and on Rita.. another Tales costume! Go figure!) I may go from the inside and pinch it in and see if that looks good. Otherwise, I'll just leave it as-is and call it a speed vent :P
I don't have to worry about getting a bow& arrows for this, though, since Tania has a kid's set from our awesome Ragnarok costumes. I'll just borrow that, and won't have to worry about weapons+ security+ all that. I mean, really.. who is going to get hurt by a plastic suction-cup arrow??
Today, I hope to get some more done. I still haven't heard back from Bernina on that ruffler foot I ordered, so I'm starting to loath the idea of having to make like.. at least a yard of box pleat ruffles by hand. The bit I did for the collar felt like it took forever already! I think I can leave those until the end, since they'll just need to get basted on top of the strap. I'll probably call Bernina in a few days and ask about it. I'm thinking about taking my machine back in, too, since the tension seems kind of wonky. I have to have it set on 7 for a half decent stitch, and it's supposed to be able to function on 5. I still have enough sewing to do with it that I can't just leave it at the repair place :( I need to at least finish the tunic, the quiver strap, and the boot cuffs! Wait.. that's everything :P
