ELSA BLOGGING, LAST POST OF THE DAY

by admin, December 22, 2014

The book is Elements of Modern Dressmaking. It’s on Gutenburg and I am pretty sure I posted the huge section on bodice linings on my blog (search for sateen 🙂 )

Mina and the beaded chiffon make an appearance. Best viewed in 720 or 1080 resolution to actually see anything I’m rabbiting on about.

 

If you spot the fluffy balls of yarn and guessed Pink Diamonds was on the re-do list you’d be right 🙂 I need to treat the yarn in a way to make it a bit more able to stand out than it is currently, I got to see how heavy the original is. No way I’m sewing anything as heavy if not heavier!

The lace had to be applied by hand and then machine so it was a bit of a time sink.
Kind of nice having so many old projects at this actually really finishable stage!

Real and new content! I promise!

Finally got the lace all applied to my silk for my Lucy dress. Yes, it has been ongoing for years. I mean yeeeeeeears.

Twice hand sewn (loosely) then machine stitched with straight stitch then zig zagged. Same effect on the sleeve wrists and on the bodice.

I also got my togruta mold in the sun, it was raining this morning and now, boom! Sun! So the molds are heating nicely right through which should mean I can pry the molds apart when I expected to….

I also used the last of my latex to splash in my turian and asari molds 🙂 I’m casting the Samara eyebrow piece again 🙂 But I have so very little left that I need to save it for any repairs. I also did some repairs 🙂 So I now have three full Turian pieces to find new hones for (scalp, jaw, mandibles, and face makes five pieces each, it’s a fair bit of latex!)

Yes it’s been a long time… I finally got as much assurance of being allowed to use the photos as I could (which was sort of repeated more than once so, yeah 😉 )
