(So I only left it just under 3 weeks, getting better…..)
Anyway, have some Yeul updates!
It’s a weird kind of skirt. Yeul’s skirt looks like it’s supposed to be a wrapped skirt, but that’s kind of impossible difficult to do (would require recutting everything, probably, and a lot of trial and error) so I decided to cheat a little. There is a zip in the back of the skirt (hidden) from which the wrap pieces on either side come from, so they at no point cross round the back (which would have caused problems).
So yes, quite proud as I haven’t used any sort of a pattern. Just common sense and some trial and error.
Needs dying, but that’ll probably be one of the last things I do as it’s fairly simple.
Lastly comes me looking all gangster.
But I’m actually showing you the various bracelets Yeul has. Not shown (as they’re not done yet) are the ‘straps’ (for want of a better word) that go across the back of her hands, they’ll be pretty simple to do though.
There are still other various beading bits to do. She has other strap bits further up her arms. The main trick with that will be getting it to stay up, but I’ll manage it somehow.
And then, that’s about all the updates I have for now!
Still left to do is the top (not started at all), the beads straps as mentioned, finishing the headpiece and hemming her fur butcape.
Shoes were bought about 4 months ago, though I don’t seem to have taken a picture. But they’re just shoes, I’m not altering them at all.
Tomorrow I plan to bring out the sewing machine, get the skirt sewing finished and do the fur. Keep putting off the top, scared to start patterning that out!
