I think I'm just going to put the walking dress up for a while. The dying jobs have me depressed about fixing it. I don't want to look at it anymore. I don't want to scrap it all together because the skirts are just fine but the bodice is such a complicated piece to completely remake.

In other news:
I got a Christmas bonus the other day and I tried really hard to be good and put it on the credit cards. They soooooo need it after getting into the house but I heard through the grapevine that mother-in-law is giving me a sewing machine for Christmas (one of those chepo brother types at Walmart I think). I couldn't do it. I ordered a new dress dummy and am going to pick up the map I want for the living room at a store here in town.

My measurements are an in between size med and med/large form so I decided to get the med/large with the smallest cover (10). I got the form in the other day and took the cover to grandmas to tailor it then wrestled it on last night. I'm guessing the foam stretches the cover a bit because it's on average an inch too large. So I'm going to sew it down a smidge and try again. (I don't quite get it as the cover fits me perfectly as is)

On the New Year's costume front I ordered this feather mask to scavenge the feathers and I ordered this hair piece thinking I would end up having to curl it to spiral sausage type curls. It comes that way out of the bag! I will say that it's MUCH longer than I expected and sooo much hair. I'm not sure how to work it to a more appropriate style with other Victorian outfits. For a saloon hussy it's fine for now as is.

Here is the test run. Sorry they are blurry. (I haven't done anything with curling my own hair so it blends better in the pics)
