IRCC 2014

Realm of Venus is holding their costume challenge and once again I am going to enter. This year's outfit will be very different form what I have entered in the past and while it may not be something that will place me in the top three it will be something I hope to get my sewing mojo going again.

My inspiration for the underwear layer

And my inspiration for the main outfit
I've never made a ladies doublet so that could be challenging

I hope to post my plans within the next week then jump into work on the 1st

persona shrine

so I was struck by the idea of creating a personal shrine to my persona's personal saint.

A little nod to my persona's catholic background. I have finished the reliquary and I was very lucky to find a real 3rd class relic. Being a Courtesan my persona's personal saint is of course Mary Magdalene. I hope to also make a small walkable labyrinth. Adding a statue, some candles, an incense burner, some holy water this could look really good! I hope to put up a bit of my shrine at battlemoor

Arg! Did awesome drawn thread work on the sleeves of the camicia cut everything sewed it together and i have discovered that the sleeve is too tight. Which means i need to fix it, i guess i could insert some lace to widen it
