This will get to be a spoon bonnet once it’s sewn together, only pieces missing are the ones for the back. The white paper is just to show the pattern, the see thoughy thing on top is a piece of thin plastic I’ll be using instead of chipboard, as I’ve got none, and then two pieces of fabric, inner and outer, along with the lace i’ll be using on the inside and some mulberry paper flowers. Not decided on what colour ribbon I’ll be using yet but I’ll get around to it.
Pictures are a bit shaky/blurry, blame my hands for not being able to hold the camera steady, ‘neway..
Got the ruffle sewn onto the top and the top part sewn onto the skirt, and would you just look at it!
That lace and ribbon around the waist haven’t been sewn onto the dress yet, debating whether to do so or not, what do you guys think? Yes? No?
Because of the weather being insufferably warm and me not being much of a summer person this top took forever for me to make. Still not entirely finished, have that ruffle there to sew onto the hem and do a few adjustments here and there, sew it onto the skirt and sit, once again, hand sewing the zipper in the back onto the skirt as I have no clue as to how to sew on those ‘invisible’ zippers on a machine, I mess that up in matter of seconds ._.
Soon going to be able starting making that jacket and bonnet, it’s going be such fun! owo
I know it isn’t much, would have been more but had to dissect a dress for the parts I needed, fit them and sew together. Also had a few adjustments to the crinoline as the bottom part was too long, again taking time. Anyway…
The over dress, still needing the top part here, will have a zipper in the back, did consider the side but thought better of not doing that. Should have the top-part sewn together tomorrow and then it’s onto the jacket and bonnet!
All back in one piece looking gorgeous as ever, happy 6th buddy.
Riku got a bit of new paint today and am pretty pleased with the outcome. Need to buy him some lashes which aren’t 1cm long as that’s the only kind in my drawer.
Middle picture fucked up somehow, but oh well, he still looks great anyway.
Oh, also finished the crinoline and the petticoat is getting there, just needs a few more stitches and done!
Will be going on ahead and make a black over dress, which I’m thinking of making full body with little puffy sleeves, then a jacket using this fabric here
which will also be used for a spoon bonnet and a small purse, then sew some long bloomers, a cute little chemise, socks, put Liam in all of it and go out to shoot a hella lot of pictures. Yup, that’s what I’ll do.
Lookit who also got painted! Little Lucas. Need to grab my dremel and hollow out those eye sockets some more as the eyes don’t fit properly, they’re too far back into his skull, oh yeah, those are also new, his eyes. Love this little kiddo ♥
Just a sweet little moment in time.
Got these two gents painted yesterday. Zach with all of his glorious freckles and lovely tan skin, actually contemplating doing a full body blush on the guy at some point, have those freckles littler most of his upper body, arms and back. Huang with his paper white complexion, though a few imperfections are just slightly visible, or so I hope else it’s just my eyes seeing things and him being a bit hard to photograph because of his white skin.
Zach’s eyes were a pain to position properly, so forgive me if they’re a bit wonky.
Started making a crinoline cage this evening as I’d very much like getting this entire dress, consisting of some 8-10 parts with everything included, brought to life and be able giving it to a little songbird called Liam.
Used an old hoopskirt, cut it open to get the steel wires out, measured them up, scaled down, cut them up using my trusty dremel and re-used the tubing from the old hoopskirt and viola. The bottom most hoop isn’t in place as it needs some sewing done there, as does the rest as it’s all held together by pins. The top hoop measures 45cm and the bottom one is 1,32m. It’s much like when I last made a hoop skirt, this time it’s just a lot more sturdy and not flopping everywhere because of the plastic wires used back then. Will be finished first thing tomorrow and then I’ll be moving onto sewing a petticoat. Will update with pictures as I get stuff sown!
Won’t feel so lonely in bed tonight
(just ignore the quality, simply wanted a picture of these two being all snuggly in their little bed)
