The Jedi is done! I hemmed it today and it can go to its rightful owner when I next see him (which will be Tuesday).
I spent most of a lovely sunny October day working on both costumes while The Avengers played to keep me company.
I have the sleeve and collar patterns drafted for the Sailor Moon costume. Which was fun since I didn't have an actual pattern for the body of the costume. So what I did do was pin the body suit down and trace the shape of the body suit to get a front and back pattern.
Which ended up looking like this:
And here is the back:
Then it was time to draft the sailor collar and sleeve. Which generally starts out looking like this:
One half of my sailor collar pattern.
And a shot of the sleeve in the process of being drafted.
Which eventually looked like this:
Aside from sleeves and collars I also made the armbands and choker today.
This is the armband before I sewed it and stuffed it full of stuffing! The cuffs will later be sewn onto some pre-made while elbow length gloves.
And this is the choker. The Gem is a maybe. I have a larger one too, but I want my clients opinion before I tack anything down. The choker will close with Velcro.
And that is it for now! Tomorrow I will cut out and try the collar and if all is good, cut into real fabric and get down to business!
