Laissez les bons temps rouler!

It’s Mardi Gras day!  And it’s raining and freezing cold out!  And I’m under the weather!

All that adds up to me, a heating pad, a blanket, some coffee and photo editing/listing of newbies for the shop.

Just listed seven (SEVEN!!!) new capelets over in the etsy shop:  https://www.etsy.com/shop/TrappedInTimeDesigns

Here’s to hoping it’s warmer in YOUR neck of the woods!

In Progress

I’ve been working on a custom full costume order.

Image

I actually *gasp* made a mock-up for this one.  I’m combining a few existing (highly altered) patterns, and draping a few of my own pieces for this, so a practice garment really just HAD to be made.

Image

Plus, I can use it as the final pattern moving forward, as I do plan to offer the costume in my shop.

Image

There are a few tweaks to make for the customer before I start on the real fabric.  The sleeves need to have less puff, the corset needs to be a wee bit shorter.  Nothing too substantial.

Image

So, it’s back to the studio with me, armed with a cup (or 2, or 3) of hot tea.

Image

I can’t wait for this to be done, so I can post images of the final!
