Well, frustration over here - the costume isn't coming out to be the picture I had in my head. I'm trying to decide if I want to continue on or just stop and give it up and save finishing it for a rainy day project instead of trying to get it done by Friday. Here is half of it - the skirt has two bustles in the back and a train that I have not completed yet b/c I don't like the way the costume fits so far. To make it fit right, I'm going to have to take out the zipper in the back and lace it up like a corset and that's another couple of hours of work. The bodice is lined and has boning so that is a pain to rework.
I am also out of Dr Pepper here at the house. When I sew, I must have Dr Pepper.
