This is what I've spent the last 6 weeks making, folks: Once Upon a Time Evil Queen Regina's velveteen riding jacket from episode 2x20. May the gods of sewing have mercy on my soul.
You'd think it wouldn't take so long, no? Yeah, me too -- but I think that every time I go to make a costume, and I am wrong every. single. time. I was right up to the wire, finishing just an hour before the party. I'm not super happy with the way it turned out, as some things really got rushed, but hell if the overall effect didn't look fantastic. And my sister was happy with it, so that's all that really matters. (...she says through clenched teeth.)
No, really, I was very much enjoying myself up until late-in-the-game setbacks happened (set-in sleeves are THE DEVIL.) It's been a long, long time since I last made clothes. If not for the deadline, I might have kept my good mood and moved right into a new project.
...maybe after a break, haha.
