Heads up, we have a family emergency in the making over here so I’m either going to not be on at all for a bit or have short bursts of being on all the time (as escapism/a coping mechanism) and—yeah. May go into more detail, may not. It depends. Thank you for your patience.
I had a Skype interview and then I didn’t have a Skype interview anymore.
One of my favorite fashion plates and Watson’s Christmas jumper were the inspiration for the Victorian Watson ensemble I made for 221B Con this year.
The Red Pants underwear is a separate post. :)
This outfit had about 17 yards Blue Cotton Silkatene, 10 yards Garnet Silk Dupioni, 4-5 yards lining, 1 yard white Silkatene
I’m not certain exactly how many hours it took, but I can confirm that I spent 17 hours at an ironing board making the mini-pleats and all the triangular trim for the skirts. I caught up on ALL the shows I had been missing in the last month. 75 yards were folded down to 37 yards and 11 yards of white were pleated to 3.5 yards. That’s a lot of vinegar spray my friends.
A quick Chemisette fills in the neckline and allows me to take the dress from daywear to evening wear should I choose to.
Many, many thanks to HeLovesRose for the group and costume photos! She was the super adorable (and hot) Bunny Molly.
I would have been nothing without my Sherlock (CousinCecily) and Mycroft (Frauleinninja). They did a phenomenal job on their outfits, especially when you consider that CousinCecily was a beginning sewer and Frauleinninja had never tackled historical costuming before. I get a bit teary when I think about how much I loved this group.
