The fabric has not yet arrived, but according to UPS it is due to arrive tomorrow. I anticipate much squealing in excitement and shock at how heavy 10 yards of velvet really is.
I have also been a bit side-tracked today due to finalizing my costumes for Costume Con (woo!). Apparently I am suffering from CADD (Costume Attention Deficit Disorder). I am not sure who came up with the acronym, but it is an excellent one! The sugar from the gluten free cake balls my sister made and the gluten free Pop-tarts (I haven’t had one in YEARS) that my friend J.L. made is just making the whole thing worse. The let down tomorrow will be painful, I think.
Today I have been focusing on this costume, which is completely unrelated to anything Italian:
Generally costumes don’t scare me in terms of complexity, etc., but I admit to being highly nervous about embossing foil on organza. And thanks to The Seamstress of Avalon I now know what several of the trims and designs are made of. Thank you!!
This weekend I am going off to Stitchville USA to procure new punch needle tools and to start sourcing thread for Eleonora’s dress. Hopefully on Monday I will at least have a sample started to see how this is going to go.
I just have to remember to keep the cake balls off the fabric…
