I’m going to have a nap or something but that hem? Done today. I cut and pinned a felt facing then sewned two rows of feather trim (which was doubled to begin with) then bound the edge with velvet. Then sewed the wig wefts.
The sleeves were also cut and hemmed today. Pretty much everything left is handsewing including the collar covering, spine and then drilling holes to lace the carapace in place. It holds up by itself but if a little large so it will fall off if I don’t have additional support. I’m going to add feathers to the spine and more wig wefts.
So I still need to decide on the wig and how I’m styling it.
