ELSA LIVEBLOGGING FOR THE NEW YEAR!
It is 2 hours until 2015 .
Elsa raglan sleeve shape is basted on one side, Eddie Izzard is still on tv, okay our collection, and I really am now going to bed. Tested the dress, got a goood metal zip to tint but it is strong and brilliant.
Obnoxious Bart Mode enabled. I need a pan for a hat and one for a drum to shout “I am the greatest, everybody loves me, I am the greatest” because I freaking ombre dyed fully sequinned fabric and I so deserve it!
Recipe is equal parts Kelley Green and Turquoise but in a very dilute bath and a bare skant amount of colour enhancer.
But baby that is ombre dyed and while the hem and bodice are very different, it’s very hard to find where they merge.
My posts are a bit backlogged due to file size- updated WordPress and that setting seemed to change.
Anyway. Back to original plan. Pinning the shell layers and removing the stitching guide.
The shell layers are stretchier than the lining which is why I wanted to use it to hold the layers in place, but three or four layers of sequins is too much bulk at the waist seam.
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!
