Some of you are new and some of you don’t exist and I’m basically just talking to myself. Even so, I know you’re waiting expectantly for the latest update. Please be patient. Emerald City Comic Con has come and gone and I am preparing for Awesome Con in a couple of weeks.
Alright, fine! Here’s a quick note.
Ripping seams. You’re gonna have to do some. Get used to the idea. And no, there’s no trick to make it easier, faster, or less messy. Sometimes you’re just gonna fuck up and have to resew the seam. I must have ripped the seams on my zippers 3 or 4 times before I got a working shirt. I just ripped the seams on my jacket seam so that I can rework the inner sleeve. Although this last one was pretty easy as they were hand sewn in the first place. I had made the inner sleeve a little short on the high side and it made getting into the jacket a pain in the ass. Which, apparently, is an indication that you’ve done something right. When I tried on the jacket without the shirt the sleeve was functional and looked good for the length but when in costume it didn’t feel right to me. So with 2 weeks to go I am reworking the sleeves to improve the length and ability to don.
