Costume update, got the bodice and skirt almost done.

This costume is definitely a challenge. And is taking a bit of time to do. But, when you can only do bits at a time because of a tiny human and needing help to sew things go slower. Tiny human reprogrammed my mother’s sewing machine while we were fitting the bodice.



The costume was a couple sizes too big for me, the pattern was only a few sizes too big. We have had to fit the costume a bit more than we were hoping to.



The bodice has been the most work and it still needs more done. The sheer overlay still has to be attached.



The skirt is proving to be easier than anything else. I am hoping to get it mostly done this weekend for Halloween next Friday.

wpid-20141022_113750.jpgStill needs work yes, but is is getting there mor and more. the bodice will be more form hugging. and the skirt is mostly done. We just have to hem and connect the two together as well as add a zipper. Which finding the color of zipper to match was almost impossible. Great/

Oh, and my son’s leaf of Lorien came in and he had mama wear it. He also got Sting in yesterday and has not stopped playing with it.

We didn’t have to go into a troll cave for this, Amazon did that for us. HA!
