Yeah, I've been busy.

The skirts ... yeah. I forgot to remove the extra 4" from the waist and ended up with 4" of overlap in the back. It looks fine, and I talked myself out of taking it all apart and re-cutting it. I wish I'd gone with a lighter weight fabric (a drawback of ordering online is not knowing exactly what you're getting), but Sweet Daughter is happy with it, and it works.

And then I got to learn to work with Naugahyde. It wasn't as awful as I thought. We made a belt (buckle courtesy of a 75 cent thrift store belt), a sheath for her wooden dagger and a pouch.


We're going to the Renaissance Faire tomorrow. Did I mention Sweet Daughter wanted me in garb, too? Yeah. That's a story for another day. But they're just costumes ...


  1. Very nicely done! Congrats on getting it all together!!!

  2. SD looks lovely. Is there no end to your talents?

  3. What do you mean just a costume? That girl is truly clothed in love.
