Well, 'secret project', aka finishing the Parade Handmaiden from the first Star Wars prequel I started in college didn't pan out. I didn't have enough fuschia dye for the lining and backing, so now it's back to Edwardian corset and White Witch.
I finished the largest panel for the White Witch and started the next panel (about half the width of this one). I think they are too skinny so I've expanded this panel by a row on each side and will be making the back of the skirt a little wider (it's smaller than the belt underneath, been bugging me.) It weighs 1 lb and 14 oz.
Now, I finalized the length once I got in my platform boots. Tilda Swinton is 5'10" and I'm 5'00". The horizontal line across my hips wasn't doing me any visual height favors, so I decided to add platform boots. They are 3.75" in the heel and 2.5" in the platform. I did a comparisson shot for funsies.
I'm hoping to go to Tandy Leather in the next couple of weeks for the corset material, I've been testing metal and paper clay for the lion crown, and I have the fur for the shawl sourced and am ready to order it. 6 months left til Dragon*Con!
