I'm tired, but then, what's new?
I managed to get my entire Victorian (steampunk) outfit done, and then I tried it on. I am really quite pleased. I even managed to dig a couple of vintage petticoats out of my vintage stash so I don't have to make a petticoat for the purple Victorian. Which was good, because all of this is stash work, and I didn't have enough of the right kind of lace to make the petticoat.
It'a almost all done - the last major thing I'm working on is the sleeves to go with the black and pink loose gown that pinkleader , lisettelaroux , theodorad and friends made for my Pelican ceremony - the sleeves are done, and I'm working on the buttons (about 75 or so, I think - I'll know when I'm done), then I'm adding false vents around the base of the gown body. For reference, this is the gown in question:
It needs sleeves. pinkleader gave me the leftover pink silk used for edging and lining the gown, and last week I made sleeves. Sleeves. Yup.
OH GOD, KILL ME IF I EVER TRY TO DO THIS KIND OF THING ON A DEADLINE EVER AGAIN I CAN'T TAKE THE PRESSURE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE *slap*
*ahem* I mean, yeah, sleeves. I think they look pretty good. *cough*
We had dinner with theodorad and Roland on Friday, which was lovely, and theo, just so you know, when I unpacked my work bag, I found a lovely parting gift from Hobbes, that he apparently tucked in my bag without me seeing it. I'll bring the orange mouse back next time I see you.
Nice cat. Very generous with his toys.
Otherwise, I'm working too hard, and not sleeping well. Typical LJ stuff, not worth whining about.
Maybe I'll post pics of the sleeves tonight.
