The King and His Hound dog
 
For Halloween my nephew was Elvis which is extremely appropriate since everyone calls him the King Smiley
 

 
My Puppy Phineas dressed up as his hound dog in a matching cape
You ain't nothin' but a hound dog, Cryin' all the time
 

 
Some more pictures of all my hard work. The outfit is made from Satin with over 130 gemstones hand sewed on. I used my embroidery machine to add the eagle and lettering details which helped make it pop. Its definitely one of my favorite projects!

Back (With and without cape):

 
Bell bottoms:

It was a lot of fun to make and I still have Elvis songs stuck in my head. Thanks for looking!
2  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / 1895 Victorian Dress (Simplicity 4156) on: September 18, 2016 01:18:55 PM
1895 Victorian Dress (Simplicity 4156)



Just finished this beauty for a couple to wear to a local convention. They are going as Sherlock Holmes and the Countess. I still have to make a mens frock coat to finish the ensemble Sad

Pattern: Sadly this puppy is out of print so it isn't cheap but the couple paid for it so it was fun getting to work with a pattern I would normally be too cheap to buy



I ended up altering the neck to be a split collar because the original which folds over and secures at the side of the neck felt too clunky and it was much easier to make it meet in the middle



These sleeves are evil and the pattern isn't the clearest on explaining the construction of the top of this dress. I'm still not sure I followed the instructions correctly in some instances but it came together anyway



Back:



The dress is made of satin and brocade. The brocade looks amazing but as always it frays terribly and was not the easiest to work with on the bodice.

The top closes via hooks and eyes. I hand sewed a strip of ribbon down the front since I was worried how they would hold up on the brocade fabric:





My assistant got in the photo Smiley



Thanks for looking!

I had a lot of help thanks to a blog post of someone who already made this costume and her dress looks amazing!

Dinkime: So glad both arrived! I know Reba had her other ornament broken; I am hoping supermutts' wasn't! 
Sadly I think that Ron's owl Errol was delivering the package because the Bertie Bots ornament didnt survive transport but the House crest ornament was so amazing that it more than made up for it.

patty_o_furniture I love your tree! The garland has to be my favorite part Smiley

The entire gallery is amazing and I love how many different types of ornaments people created.

The snape tin is fantastic and I love the details carved into the egg ornament. They are definitely going to be an awesome addition to everyone's trees this year.

I finished and have it all packaged, the hard part is remembering to actually bring it with me to work to get it to the post office.
