First things first

Having finished the 5-A-Day, I went straight on to the next costume sewing project on the list[*], which was the Purple Skirt Set. This is the third of the made-to-go-with-the-Pink-Confetti skirt sets. But the idea is that I will have several other bra & belt sets to mix & match with ALL THE SKIRTS!

So anyway, I got started on the skirt, and I got all the basic construction done this afternoon. It's my basic mermaid skirt, one panel at the front, two at the back, godets at the back & sides (the back one's a bigger one), elastic in the waist/upper hip, and a split up the left leg.

The idea is that I will be doing easy edge-beading- cup sequin, 4 beads (or however many it needs) cup sequin, all along the hem. Expect numerous "Gaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhd! This is soooooooooooo boooooooooooring!" posts in the next few days!

The plan is to make gauntlets, a headband and some sort of leg thingy or anklets.

I think this one will be relatively quick. It's going to be the beading that takes the time.

[*] Of course I've got a list. Lists are one of my Things. The order of projects gets jigged around a bit, OK a lot, but the Project List is how I keep my sanity. If I get a costume idea, I take it out of my head, and put it on the List, where it will be nice and safe, and I don't have to think about it any more.

It was either that or cleaning the kitchen!
