Whew, now that Colossalcon is over I can finally have a little time to rest! The Pincushion outfit reached its final iteration at Anime Central a few weeks ago, and @imploder got this amazing shot of the wig which was newly completed for the con. I had a blast entering her in the masquerade and was honored with a Best Master Craftsmanship award!
Ah, tooth pain is it madam?
A very successful first event portraying a surgeon in the Royal Navy, wearing the coat I made.
Just added a bunch of items to the shop this week one of my favorite being these little wax Viking warriors perfect for waxing your thread while hand sewing and they stand guard to protect your home/shop while not in use!

Well, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy! Amongst other projects, here is a 1790’s Royal Navy midshipman’s coat I have made.
The Simple Solution to Perfect Pleats:
Passing on a GLORIOUS ‘secret’ from my sewing guru about pleats!! After wearing my new poketrainer skirt(black pleated cuteness from HELL), and complaining about how I’d have to redo the pleats every time I put it on, she imparted on me this glorious wisdom, and a quick google search led me to this lovely website, that’s probably chock full of fun little sewing secrets!
And initial test seems to be work wonderfully! Won’t have a full test until I abuse it for Mega, but I’m certainly hopeful! 🙂
Busy making a pattern from scratch for my late C18th civilian coat. Wish me luck…

Started a waistcoat today and nearly finished it!
Since taking the picture I’ve finished one of the pockets and marked the buttonholes on the other.
Need to find some buttons for it now!
