P-19 Progress Update

I haven't been very active at blogging so far this year, but I've been busy sewing all month. Emerald City Comic Con is only 2 weeks away, which means it's time to hustle and get Padme's Picnic Dress done.

Because of the high mount of embroidery, I know I'm not going to have all of it done in time for comic con, but I plan to have enough to make it look good and will finish it afterwards.

Last week I finally (finally!) finished the bodice; embroidery, lining, and all. It's by no means perfect, but I'm quite happy with the end result.

The big piece I've been tackling this month is the skirt embroidery. It's simple, and has been going faster than I expected, but I'm still learning as I go and have a few spots I need to go back and re-do when I have the chance.

And finally, this weekend I got around to making the headband and hair pieces. The buns were crocheted, which is something I haven't done in a long time, but they turned out pretty well. I'm working on a blog post with a pattern, which you should see sometime soon.

I put it all on Trisha to see how it looks and I'm quite happy with how everything's coming together.
