It’s March already??

“Do not merely practice your art, but force your way into its secrets, for it and knowledge can raise man to the divine”.

-Beethoven

March has snuck up on me, I dare say!  In some ways I’m glad it’s here (because that just means there’s only 65 days until I’m done with Mount Mary University, and then 89 days until I leave for Italy, but who’s counting?), but I’m also starting to fret.  My next outfit is due March 26th and I’ve only gotten as far as the patterning.  Luckily, that’s done, though.  I can speed through cutting and sewing in just about no time since I’ll be making similar jodhpur-ish bloom pant things (idk what I’m going to call them) that I made Sarah, but the top might prove to be a bit more difficult.  Debating whether or not I want a bias casing, or a ribbon casing for the elastic that goes around the upper edge.

In other news, it is, and has been, officially my spring break and yes I definitely needed this.  I have gotten 4 days, and 3 nights since I came home Thursday that I’ve been with my love, and I’m feeling pretty recharged.  Had to get in as much time as possible over the weekend because he works pretty much from dusk ’til dawn due to his two part time jobs during the week. (And with Dark Souls 2 coming out tomorrow, it’ll be even harder to see him ;P  Just kidding.  He’s actually pretty good about giving time to spend with me and neglecting his games so I wont be too hard on the poor man).

Other than seeing m’love, I’ve managed to complete one C/D scale bra that will be sent out tomorrow (about 2 and a half weeks earlier than planned which will make her quite happy~), some awesome scale flowers, and a bunch of other random stuff.  I am taking special orders to be completed for pick up at KitsuneKon.  Check out the information here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=428886943914395&set=a.157549637714795.34067.153977624738663&type=1&theater
I can’t believe that KitsuneKon is so close.  I don’t feel ready at all.

 

Okay picture time 😀

I got to work more with leather last week. It was exciting! The left one is a curved seam, and the right one simulates a waistline dart.

(almost) ALL the colors!

Post AMKE, More Progress

I’m going to say this right now.  Anime Milwaukee was a HUGE success (especially when compared to last year).  I’m glad there weren’t any panels (except for one) that I wanted to go to because that allowed me to be more active with my booth and create more items for people to enjoy 🙂  I was so lucky that my friend Cassie was there, because she helped me tap into some interesting ideas with the stuff I had. 
 
I was so proud when I saw people wearing my items ;0; made me so happy!.  I was also able to sell the one scale bra I had made and it looked so adorable on the girl ;0; It was a bit bitter sweet, though, to see one of my babies go.  I am, however, excited to make more!  I’m planning on trying to make at least 1 C/D sized bra for KitsuneKon.  I don’t know if I’ll get it done, but I’m hoping so!  I am also hoping I can get some scale flowers made to either use as part of hair forks, maybe a set of hair sticks, and whatever else I can do.
 
Here are some of the nifty items I came up with (some of them with help from Cassie!)

Monday was not fun, though.  Post-con depression, and incredible tiredness.  I honestly don’t remember much of Monday except for some hazy details.  That aside, I think I finally managed to get a good nights sleep the past two nights (with like almost 9 hours or so of sleep lmao).  Either way…it’s been pretty productive, sewing wise.  I’ve gotten pretty far with Sarah’s pants, and shirt, and I even started drafting my patterns.

Peasant Blouse, front and back on left; raglan peasant sleeve on right.  The sleeve can go to hell. D:<  It took me 2.5 hours, and about three screw ups before getting it to look that pretty.  I cut both of them in muslin too.  Completely forgot that this is a raglan sleeved top, so I have to cut out another sleeve (I usually can get away with one sleeve for fit….T__T)
 
That’s it for now everyone 😀
