I'm doing this pattern right now, and I cannot, for the LIFE OF ME figure out the collar! It's my first real collar ever. Any pointers?

I've been trying and trying to make these "flat" like you have here. But they always end up cone shaped. (they would stick off my head too far) how did you make them so flat?

This is truly beautiful, and eye catching. I found myself just staring at it for about 20 minutes.  Grin
I do have a question, if you don't mind; how, exactly, did you get the texture for the front? was each feather pieced together? or was it more like a "quilting" technique to make the feather pattern on the outside?

well, anyway, it's absolutely stunning! great work!

It's a technique called 'cording' or 'Italian Quilting' where a cord is actually sewn inbetween two layers of fabric. There's no padding in it.  It is visible on both side of the garment, it's jut more apparent on the gray side. Here's a close-up to give you a better idea:


ooooooh! I see now! of course how silly of me not to think of that! I thought perhaps it looked like you used a cording foot on a sewing machine. It's absolutely LOVELY! thank you!

Does anyone know where I can find these for DIY purposes? I really want to buy some so I can paint them, yet I can't seem to find any blank ones (such as ones that are just solid colored)

anyone know where I can buy these in bulk?  Huh

I'd LOOOOVE to know!!

Thank you ladies and gents!!!

Sorry it's late! Smiley

Here are the actual characters:
Alice:

#47:


And here are my Husband and I...He's not wearing the jacket, because it was actually really warm...
My costume was completely handmade (even the petticoat) and better pictures are to follow. (because you can't see all the little details that I worked so hard to include.)

I made the skull for the middle of the apron bow, and I also made her Omega necklace as well.

Whew!


those spats and shoes were the only things NOT made by me....(necklace was handmade..sorry you can't see it too well)


My skull! (my fav part of the costume)
