TDTuesday

Welcome to To Do Tuesday August 16 hosted by Christine over at Stitch All the Things!

1.  Sunkissed Tee from Peek-A-Boo Pattern Shop
2.  TSNEM:  August – Bodice Sloper (remeasure and adjust pattern accordingly)
3.  Pattern Test: Capsule Wardrobe (finish capsule wardrobe)
4.  Little Mermaid Costumes (sketch and mock-up both costumes)
5.  LARP:  Short Sleeve Underdress (get it made and off my list)

I am a day late, again, but I don’t mind.  I got quite a bit done this week, but I don’t have any pictures to add.  Everything is in a partially done state, so next week’s update will be a lot more fun!

I didn’t work on these projects at all because I have been working on the capsule wardrobe and the Little Mermaid costumes.

3.  Pattern Test: Capsule Wardrobe (finish capsule wardrobe)

I have all the bottoms completed, and I expect to have all the tops finished by this Sunday so we can take pictures and close the project.  I love how everything is turning out, and I can’t wait to see Reagan in these!

4.  Little Mermaid Costumes (sketch and mock-up both costumes)

A.  Ariel’s Sail Dress – It took me a while to wrap my head around how to make this costume because even though she’s supposed to look like she’s wrapped in a sail and rope, she still needs to look good, the costume needs to be durable, and it needs to be something she can change into quickly.  While searching for inspiration, I ran across the blog Strange Like That, and she had a post detailing how she made her own Ariel’s Sail Dress.  I love her results, so that is the direction I am taking the one I am making.  This is my first priority to finish because we have a Media Night scheduled for Thursday, and we will be performing the song/scene where Ariel wears it.

B.  Ariel’s Transformation Tail – I have the plan and pattern made for this costume, as well, and I will be putting it together before Friday, which is the first rehearsal with the harness flies (insert excited squeal here).  I cannot wait to see it in action!  Reagan is not going to have a ton of time in the harness to practice kicking off the tail, so we want her to start practicing Friday.

1-B.  Ariel’s Transformation Tail
2.  Pattern Test: Capsule Wardrobe (finish capsule wardrobe)
3.  Sunkissed Tee from Peek-A-Boo Pattern Shop
4.  TSNEM:  August – Bodice Sloper (remeasure and adjust pattern accordingly)
5.  LARP:  Short Sleeve Underdress (get it made and off my list)
