1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Slinky Satin Robe on: February 27, 2012 07:33:59 PM
Hello!  Lately, I've been a little obsessed with the quest of sewing the perfect little satin robe.  I love lounge-wear, and like to keep something over my arms.  This is version six (I added piping and a pocket from the previous version) and I think I am getting close to exactly what I wanted.  I'm really developing a love/hate relationship with silky fabrics!









2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Lady Adventurer on: November 01, 2011 04:29:32 PM
Hello Everyone!

Early in October, my mom sent me a box of leather scraps left over from a furniture restoration project she was working on.  They were too supple and luxurious not to use, so I looked at it for inspiration for Halloween.    I wanted to use it for armor, but something that felt very feminine, so Steampunk was the perfect fit. My character was a Lady Adventurer, ready to take on the wild with a wink!  





Some detail pictures:



I love houndstooth!  This vest will get a lot of rewear, I have a feeling.

Here is my sketch.  I am pretty proud of the fact I was able to execute it (and then some!)

I got some tips from this tutorial when I was putting the bustle together:

The bloomers are my most favorite free online pattern, Collette's Madeline mini-bloomers.

The blouse, vest, and leather pieces are all original. The painted gun is from the dollar store!  



Thank you for checking out my costume!  Hooray for Halloween!
