Halloween 2013 Sewing

This post was scheduled to go up over a week ago, but I probably messed up setting the date and time, so here it is now!

I don't have many pictures of the in-process construction of my Halloween costume because I finished it a mere six-ish hours before I had to wear it the next morning.  (Yeah, it was like that.)  "Finished it" is very relative in this sense.  The blouse is fully wearable, complete with closures, but the belt had to be safety-pinned closed.  As I learned from a friend at CoCo over the summer, you do not need closures for something to be "done."

No pictures of the mockup, unfortunately, since the ever-wonderful sister that normally acts as my photographer was comfortably reading in bed and could not be moved.

I have discovered the secret to watching movies or television while working: the program has to be something I already know by heart, so that I do not spend more time watching than I do sewing.  I also finally got smart and raised the table…

Halloween 2013

All those "Edwardian Hair Attempt" posts were not in vain!  I finished my Halloween costume on time and enjoyed very much wearing it to school for Pumpkin Day.
Prepare yourself for pictures.  Lots of 'em.  And most of them are silly.

The next post will (hopefully) be a bit more serious.

A huge thank you to my wonderful friend who took these pictures for me!  I'm sorry I can't take serious pictures sometimes, but they came out beautifully.
