Blaaarg. Finished figuring out the measurements for the alligator skirt, drafted a muslin and pinned it, tried it on...had to add .5" to one measurement and some length to the back section, but I *have* figured out how much fabric I need for it. (40" long and 54" wide, which is nice.)

I still need to finish sorting out the jacket; I've made progress on the body, but haven't touched the sleeves yet. I have the first pattern cut apart and I am taking the advice of doing the second draft on a heavier fabric similar to what the actual material will be like. I'm fairly certain it'll be less than a yard, but I'd rather be safe than sorry - especially with how much material the pleats might eat up. I need to get this sorted out pretty much tomorrow, 'cause I need to buy the fabric Tuesday if I want any hope of finishing the outfit in time for the next Dorian's. (Which I'd *really* like to manage)

What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on

Neutral. Not Northern, Southern, or Western, just American. Your national American identity is more important to you than your local identity, because you don't really have a local identity to begin with.

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?

Easily the cutest thing I've seen all week, and that includes cat antics.

Bachue: Sweet Jesus spread on a cracker, Lyn, have you NO impulse control at all??!

Me: Meh.

Yes, this is the Mayfaire Moon corset I mentioned I was up all night lacing the other day. I can't wait to see it when it's actually got all the Tardis-y bits in place.

Started off the day trying to map The Big Picture o' Motivations for a writing project, shortly thereafter found myself researching antediluvian Sumerian kings, got distracted and read part of The Tempest, wandered over to Nikki's place and sorted all of her fabric, then made a color-coded list of corset progress, and ended the evening lacing a Tardis. I wonder what tomorrow will bring?

I has the brain dumb, for my week has been a full and distracting one.

Aaaaaand DONE.

Sweet jesus spread on a holy cracker, George R.R. Martin!

I might just have to go back and read the whole thing all over again after I've had some sleep. And punched the wall a few times.

Drafted the first attempt at a pattern for my Sally costume, and on a whim I hand-stitched it together loosely. It's damn near a perfect fit for what I was aiming for. Just need to drop the neckline a little. (and do the sleeves.) I had thought the body shape was going to be the hard part, but I think I can just go right ahead and use this design.

And now, sleep.

Aaaaron, ping me on AIM when you get home, if it is soon. (I have to be up early and my phone doesn't get great reception here to begin with.) I think Headspace!YJ might have a seventh member. My brain is trying to amuse me again...

This is not a fanvid. This was created and released by the people who made the show, as a promo.
