While we're on the subject of faeries...the new outfits are coming along slowly but surely. 'Slowly' partly because I have so many ideas in my head and I know I can't do them all, so I faff about trying to decide which one I should go with. But mostly because my sewing skills are rather BASIC and my ideas are not quite so basic, so there tends to be a discrepancy between the two that is filled with cursing and swearing and a lot of unpicking and re-sewing. But here's where I'm up to.
Still a bit more embroidery to be done on the front, a couple of spirally swirls. The headband is finished, with more lovely Autumn leaves, roses and ribbons. I have a red long sleeved top to go underneath.
Detail on the headband.
This is the 'Forest' Faery as of yesterday. Headband finished, but lots to do on the jerkin.
Detail on headband. Green leaves on this one.
Jerkin as of this morning. Not quite finished, but getting there. And managed to buy a green top cheap (in the 'boys' section of course, because all you can get in the 'girls' section is pink, black and lilac...aarggh!), but it was a skivvy and miss doesn't like skivvies, so the polo neck had to come off, and the cuffs as well. Now I need to find/make/dye some leggings to match!
Detail of front. My sewing skills, or perhaps more my pattern drafting skills, are pretty woeful and this isn't quite sitting right, but I'm trying to be very Zen about it...IT'S JUST A PLAY DRESS-UP!!!!
