I'm having a costume party with rufous03 in a couple of weeks so I started working on my costume a while back. I finally finished it!  Grin I'm so excited!



Sorry about the frowns in the pictures... I was really tired yesterday when I took them and my camera was being annoying which irritated me--meh, you get the picture (no pun intended). I am happy I'm done!

I used simplicity 9966:

But I didn't put any boning in the corset/vest because by the time I got to that section, I realized I didn't buy any, and I had already made a second trip to the store to get stuff that I didn't know I needed. Somehow, the backs of the patterns really don't prepare you for everything... Anyway, I really didn't want to wait to go and get stuff before I finished it, so yes, the corset is a little wrinkly. But that's okay, it's certainly more comfortable!

Oh and thanks!   Cheesy

A bodice like that would probably have cording instead of boning anyway.  I think it looks fine.  Smiley

Thanks Ludi! You're so sweet!

Rufous, thanks, when I was picking out fabrics, I was going to try to get some blue/green plaid, but then I decided that red would just be better. Classic red plaid. Plus, that was the only plaid that had enough fabric on the bolt. It seems that every time I go to the store to get fabric for a lot of stuff, there is never enough on the bolt that I want. In fact, the blue fabric underneath I couldn't even get at Joann's. All the plain blues that they had didn't have 4 and a half yards, so I went to Hobby Lobby on another day. When I asked for 4 and a half yards, the lady just stared at me like I was crazy and made me go into detail of what I was making before she'd cut it! It kind of made me irritated, but I got my fabric (and for a good price) so I was happy in the end.

Scarmouche: Thanks! Like I said before, it's definitely more comfortable. Although since it isn't as tight as it would have been, I have to wear a sash or belt holding the skirt up because it's so heavy! Ha ha!  Roll Eyes
