This is today! The capelet is fully sewn together, except for the last bit of the purple trim which is currently just pinned on. I’ll be stitching that by hand, I think. For that bit, I mostly followed this tutorial for seamless trim. I considered doing the same thing for the top and bottom of the bodice too, but we’ll see. I may end up just bias-taping that, center seam be damned.
The bodice is, at least, now in one piece, though the closures aren’t on yet. I’ll need to do that after trying everything on tomorrow, along with closing and hemming the skirt, and painting the pink and teal onto the black shirt.
I’ve come to terms with the fact that there’s no way I’ll be entirely done by the con on Saturday, so I’m getting done what I can. The cape will definitely not have its pattern painted on, nor will the skirt, unfortunately. Depending on time, I may also remake the sleeves, since I know I won’t have gloves.
The most important things to get done tomorrow, anyway, are the dress bits itself, and then making the crown. I’d like to style my wig tomorrow too, but thanks to all the tutorials online, that I can do Saturday if I really have to.
