i'm hand sewing what's going to be a 50s housewife costume. and by hand sewing i really mean by hand since i don't have a sewing machine up here. argh. it's taking forever.
^ quick sketch of what it's going to look like.
i'm about halfway done with the polka dotted dress. I still need to start the apron. and i need to procure some white stockings, i wanted seamed white stockings to be historically accurate, but no one sells white seamed stockings. bastards. I have the shoes (they're little black patent leather mary janes! love!) i need to find someone who knows how to weild a curling iron to flip my hair out, because i fail at girly things and have no idea how to.
i'm really excited. i think i might finish in time. i was really worried about that earlier. heh, kelly and i are going to make quite the pair. she's going as jim carrey from ace ventura when he's in the insane asylum.
