I've been working hard on my large, and I have ideas for at least one medium and small. Unfortunately I had two setbacks: I found the perfect buttons, but I needed at least six and they only had five, and I discovered that I needed to add an underskirt to combat some translucency.

I'm 90% finished with my large and I'm getting ready to start on my medium. I added an underskirt to the large, which made it a little heavy, but it should be perfectly fine with enough petticoat.

FINALLY got all my materials together for the most part... I'm already in ' OMG only 20 days until sendoffs!' panic mode! XD

Then again, I'm planning to spoil my partner quite a bit, so if a downgrade is necessary, I've already thought it out. I KNOW she's going to love it to death, even if I go with Plan B.

Argh, times like this make me hate work and wish I had a car! I've got all the stuff I need to start crafting, but my patterns are a two hour bus ride away, and the boyfriend's still at work! Blargle! Oh well, for now, I can still finish up my smalls, and I'm going to start on the interchangeable bits for my medium. Woot!

On the bright side, once patterns are in hand, it'll probably only take me 2-3 days tops for each of the other pieces. Yeah! Cheesy

And sorry for ranting, but this swap is the highlight of my month! Cheesy

Oh... Actually notating my progress would probably be helpful... TTuTT

I'm about 60% done with the smalls, and have started on pieces of the medium, but haven't started on the main part of the medium or started on the large. Just picked up the fabric and such today, so that should change in short order.

good lord I feel like I'm falling behind... >.<

I'm sick currently, or quickly getting there...either way, pre-washed fabric and in process of cutting for the large and medium bits. Small I haven't started yet. probably will get to sewing on Friday and get a good majority of it done.

I hope you feel better soon rillystar!

I'm now 100% done with the medium and the small and 95% done with the large. I'm thinking of making another thing, but I'm not sure if I want to stick with the common theme of the other crafts or make something else.

Hi guys:D Thanks for letting me know how you are getting on.

I'm in the progress of doing my main item, & have the others planned out:)

I wish I had been on Craftster long enough to have joined this swap. I saw your post on lj and it made me join here again. Looks like you guys are making awesome stuff. I hope you do a round 2 sometime (or a smaller accessories swap would be fun, too.)
I'm looking forward to the gallery.

Whee! I'm about 30% done with my large now, and I'm caught up in some of the fiddly detail work, but after that it's smooth sailing and should only take 2-3 hours to assemble.

Now I'm caught up in a debate with myself about how my medium is going to work. I'm attempting to draft my own knitting pattern, but I'm not exactly an expert in that respect, so I have a sewing-based plan B if worst comes to worst.

And the smalls are just about complete! Whoo! Cheesy
