Aaauuugghhh...my eyes...  
Current task: topstitching the edges of the blue pieces that edge the openings of the palms of Rikku's gloves. I'm not using a fabric that frays, but I want the edges to look neatly finished, so there ya go. The good news: the process is going well, and I'm quite happy with the results thus far. The stitch line is a little wavy in parts, but who the hell cares - extremely precise sewing comes only with lots of practice. The bad news: since I'm farsighted, this sort of work makes my eyes get tired pretty fast, so it's break time for me. Bleh. Maybe I should get some reading glasses in the near future - I am, indeed, going to crossplay Zhang He (Dynasty Warriors 4 version, which doesn't involve a bare-chested costume) along with a big group of friends for ACEN 2005, and that will involve a FUCKTON of tailoring and detail work. Hrm...I wonder if I could bring the pieces to sewing school... ^_^

Thanks! ^_^

I'm not sure - I have to look at all of them and then decide. (I don't think I'd want to do the DW3 costume, though, because I highly doubt I could come up with a bare chest covering that would look right.) I'll definitely be buying a dress form for this costume because it's going to require mad tailoring and I'm not going through another round of "fit muslin to oneself while not poking pins in one's sensitive bits"... =P
