I've been doing a lot of work for Naka-Kon lately, which is in the last month before the con, so I haven't had a lot of time to sew. I'm also waiting on some dye to come in to work on the lantern dress. I did get mirrors in, so I laid them out in pattern:
I think I need to swap the small mirrors for even smaller ones. They await buttonhole thread so I can couch them down.
Meanwhile, I've been working on a commission for Naka-Kon. We've got a live-action show this year, based on a beautiful Manga drawn by Amelie Belcher, and I'm making the Tomo-side Kimonos. You can go here to see what they look like.
Here's the base of Tomo's Kimono:
There is a fight coreography and such so to make the dress different we went with a circle skirt instead of a straight kimono. The other girls will have straight ones. I've also patterned out the sleeve, which has a really beautiful wing-like design:
I can't wait to work on this some more!
