I’ve been looking through my stash of fabrics with a calculating eye and have finally settled on a few absolutely desperate to make right now projects. Most of which use my stash in some way or another 🙂 This is all locked in and I have plans for what occasion each will be for 🙂
Freya from Hunstman: Winter’s War (robes and armour) & Norma Shearer from Upstage
The armour can be from my stash (so lucky!) so can Norma’s gown. It’s the robes that is currently making my brain itch because I need to calculate and create my patterns precisely.
But that slinky velvet. Obsessed. There is a preview that has survived and it’s at the NZ film archive! The skirt front of the gown isn’t so exciting but the rest is. And I have many options to adapt the front of the skirt. And a lot of research as slinky gowns abound in the 1920s.
An early mantua.
These are illustrative only, I am trying to debate between my stash options of black ribbed silk or a shot pale blue polyester. 9m of each!
I have about 12m of cotton net. Now that I have my fluffy Robe de Style in lace I can put it all towards a fashion style that has had a dedicated folder for over a decade!
These are “new” projects. I am still working on my wall of things but these are mostly stash busting so really just a shifting around in my workroom 🙂
Marie Antoinette: thought I’d forgeotten? AHAHAHAHAH! All my trims are here so time to start patterning and washing sizing out of trims 🙂
Cleves red velvet: this is long term hand sewing. And fiddly. But everything is put aside.
Valois: the skirt needs hemming and I am worried I have been rushing the stitches. Also the silk is insanely difficult to work with. I have scrap silk that is less difficult to try!
Silver Spanish: it’s lining, so much lining. I also took out some extra weight from the skirt to make it wearable.
Princess de Cleves: You’d think a doublet would be easy. Nope. But I figure I can couch some braid over the existing braid for some extra texture!
Hannibal gown: reassembly!
Phantom wedding gown: in storage with the Hannibal gear, no rush, but it is silly to leave it this long!
Mina: I have to make the lining absolutely perfect as the silk has zero stretch and all my bodices have had some stretch. I now have the same ripstop cotton as for the bustle so it will be done!!! For my birthday? Maybe…
Worth Sunburst: on hold, I did just find my 9m length of pale aqua silk chiffon so I may wind up with my own interpretation of the gown seeing as there are two extant versions already. Also I have glass pearls set aside and that is more of the Kyoto style than Met style 🙂
Ahsoka: lost a bit of steam on this. Still want to finish her 🙂
Mothma: my dress shrank :/ I’m thinking of passing on the fabric parts to just reset.
Darth Talon: New bikini is fantastic! ANd I do need new lekku. My 2nd set are just too heavy 🙂
Ashara: potentially be remade into my own SWTOR jedi knight Neimhaille 🙂
Nyreen: With Andromeda coming out and more female turians running around I dug out my robes for her that were about to be thrown out. So resizing them 🙂
Leia: my senatorial robes have just gone into the wash, I got new photos for my tutorial, and finally found a pair of soles that work! SHe has no heel, her shoes are made with that really gummy rubber and there are so many cool seams in her boots anyway.
Draenei: slightly on the back burner again. I have a habit of wanting to figure out how then figuring it out and then not really wanting to finish 😉
So at the heart of it I love patterning, and figuring stuff out, not so much the final stages. Ah well 😉
@BIOWARE @SWTOR YOU DONE GOOD! SHADOW OF REVAN AND TOGRUTA <3 !!!!!

I’m not kidding, with my Bounty Hunter running around as essentially a Rene-gon femShep with Mako as practically Liara and then Rishi being such an interactive and responsive planet (butterflies- they smack in to my camera evete, and I play chase the birdie and piggies!!!). I’m loving the expansion and even with my “casual” status as a gamer (I’m a fraidy cat more than anything- though get me on a racing sim, and I am a reckless tearaway!) ANyway, I have adored playing even with my current fever. Though it means not being able to play long the game I *have* been playing has been really rewarding 🙂
I really do wish I was able to be involved with Togruta testing on the PTS. Hmm I did enable access to the PTS but I just had to do so again. Never mind. I’m honestly not sure if my adoration of the species is a good or bad thing. Much of what I love about them comes from the EU. Sadly:
This is the new customisation for Ashara (number 4). You can buy them on the GTN for very cheap. But Guh, so pretty! And her face shape works with mine so I am pretty sure I can get my current set of montral new lekku to paint in this style.
It also gives me hope that Togruta are not far off as a playable species in which case Darth Tykhi may well wind up looking like this 🙂 I can see how the customisation could work too 🙂
Meanwhile my Merc is still rocking her white knight look 😉
