Progress Report

So some of you have perhaps been wondering where the heck I've been. Well... it's been a busy month. First of all I was on vacation visiting Florida for a week, so obviously I didn't get any work done during that time. Also, I've been working on designing a new pillow to add to my Etsy store. I wasn't happy with the first try, so I've redesigned it and hopefully will have that up soon here as well as my store. I continue to add details to the skirt of the Glinda dress. I'll have some progress pictures of that within the week. I'm really hoping to have the dress completely done very soon, it's just turned out to be very time consuming to add the swirly design. Anyway, I hope you'll bear with me. I'll have some new stuff up really soon. :)

Almost Ready for the Emerald City :)

So I basically finished the construction of the dress last night! Woohoo. Now all I have to finish is some detail work. I'll be adding rhinestones to the bodice and there's a swirly design that needs to be added to the skirt, but this can be done at a leisurely place while sitting on the couch and watching tv. Ha. I also decided to make Glinda's purse. I have a fair amount of experience making purses, so I thought "what the hell, I'll just add one more thing to work on." :) I couldn't find a purse that I was happy with already made. Anyway, check out the dress!

"One Short Day" dress progress

I have a few pictures to show my recent progress with my "One Short Day" dress from the Broadway production of Wicked. They're not totally up to date anymore, but I'll take more pictures with I have more significant progress. :)

The actual Broadway costume is likely zippered since Glinda needs quick costume changes. I took some artistic liberty with the back. :)
