30th August 2013: MF Progress WIP for Miss Fortune's outfit
First step was drafting the suit pattern, since it needed a custom sleeve, collar and fold-over at the front. I baste stitched it together to check the fit, and worked out the spacing I wanted for the pinstripes. Then I took the suit apart and started applying the pinstripes to each piece.
Eventually once all the stripes were sewn on, I was able to sew the suit back together and apply the lining to the inside of the collar and sleeves.
Finished up by doing the accessories: adding a strip of purple to a pre-bought fedora, making a choker with an ornamental gem, modifying a pair of boots to have purple laces and a black tongue.
I made this costume in 3 days while finishing up details on some other costumes and packing for GemuCon.
