23rd November 2009: Bleh Soooooo a week to go... Thankfully I've been working on it all this afternoon and I'll be working on it all of tomorrow as well. I'm currently making the short trousers, sewn all of the blue cotton velvet (forgot the lining, got carried away D: will add it now) and preparing the black cotton velvet for the cuffs at the knees. Half of the jacket is ready, need to take in the bust (as I'll be wearing a binder), make the sleeves, cut out the collar and sew the lining in. then I can just add the black panels and line it all with the white chording I bought yesterday. I have a shirt to modify as well not but it's proving to be a pain D: like the boot covers...
Bustle is nearly done, just gathering it all and adding bias binding. I've sewn in some ribbon on the sides of the bustle and short trousers so that it can attach at the sides as well as clipping on the top of the trousers with hook and loop fasteners.
Hopefully this will alllll be worth it... T_T
12th November 2009: Progress-ness Wooo finished the hat today, also halfway done with the waspie ^^ found the best pattern for the jacket too (McCalls 5936) which will be very easy to alter ^^
I got habutea silk for all the lining, cotton velvet for the jacket, trousers and waspie, and navy pinstripe suiting for the bustle ^^
Just made a start on the jacket, god I love velvet :D never got to work with it before since it's so expensive! I want to go all out on this one though, I <3 Ciel that much :P
Anways, I'll get back to the jacket before I get too sleepy!
11th October 2009: Madness! Hokay, so I pretty much decided today that I want to get this done for the ball instead of my Steampunk >_>
I've ordered my Phantomhive ring, I already own the boots and I'm in the process of making the skull-topped cane.
So I'll need to modify a shirt and top hat. And then make some trousers/shorts, bustle, waspie, jacket and bootcovers.
The difficult part will be all the pinstriped bustle and ribbons, as I'm most likely going to have to hand paint all the pinstripes O_O I don't know anywhere that does that particular fabric...
Wish me luck guys!
