Versatile Patterns

I just want to mention really quickly that if you make dresses at all, the two most versatile patterns that I use are Simplicity 9891 and Simplicity 4940.  I have dissected these dresses multiple times to make my own patterns using the tops, sleeves, skirts, etc.  I highly recommend purchasing them both and making copies of each piece on pattern paper.

Shadow Weaver for C2E2

Well, I decided to go to C2E2 at the last minute (last-minute in con time = a few weeks out).  There was no costume that I'd already done that I wanted to wear, so I decided to finally make Shadow Weaver.  I've lost about 18 pounds in the last few months, so I finally have the confidence to wear something a bit more slinky than I normally would.

I'm starting today.

That gives me 14 days to design and build it.

Wish me luck.
