adventures in costuming
websites, tutorials, & scheming oh my!
Not too much happening in Jennylafleur land. I've strained something or other in my neck which has been rather uncomfortable. The worst thing is that is makes it hard to drive, very inconvenient that.

Mostly I've been sitting quietly with hot and cold compresses on my neck scheming about future costuming projects. It's been fun! I've got a master list which is too l-o-n-g so I need to narrow it down to the projects I'm really determined to do before CosCol. Still working on that – I want it all!
Next up for sure is the Victorian corset (the boning was shipping yesterday - yay!) then probably my Poe dress. I'm still debating about whether I want to revamp my original Poe dress (never happy with the bodice and it needs more ruffles) or make a new one. I'm leaning towards revamp, mostly so I can get the extra bolt of leftover fabric out of the stash. We'll see...

I've also been working on the Peacock beading. I finished a 2nd panel last night - yay. Two down 6 to go!

I also did a major update to my website. All the dress diaries and event pages have been updated, some of them with pictures that never appeared on LJ. Lots of pic posting fell through the cracks right before CosCol and the Ren Faire - opps! I also posted a video tutorial I made while working on the Diva demonstrating how I made the "zig-zag trim" on it. The page is here:

Yep the work-to-thrill ratio is great on this trim! :> Glad you liked it!

I hope your neck is feeling better soon!

My vote is for redoing the bodice and evil bertha. The dress is really pretty as is but I know it wasn't what you envisioned. The question is are you mentally finished with it or do you want to give it another go?

Yeah I think you are right. I'm almost looking forward to the challage of making it right... I really love that fabric I hate to see it wasted on something I never really want to wear, ya know?
