And my project is....

A hybrid of Princess Serenity and Queen Serenity from Sailor Moon!

I started watching Sailor Moon when I was 10 years old. I was in middle school, and I'd watch the show while getting ready for middle school at six in the morning. In high school, Cartoon Network started airing the show in the afternoons so I'd watch it religious at 4:30 pm every week day.

I thought it would make for a cool Halloween costume.

It's going to be a strapless empire waist gown with lace and a scalloped edge on the top of the bodice made out of platinum metallic thread, with cotton sateen and an underlining. The bodice will also get a chest bow which will be made out of cotton sateen and crystal organza. Because of the bows, I opted not to do the beading on the bodice. There will be trim, though.

The skirt of the dress will have cotton sateen, a layer of crystal organza, and will be lined. The back of the dress will get a bow made out of the same materials as the chest bow.

The dress will close at the side with snaps. The bows will be attached via snaps as well.

I already made a mockup and it needed absolutely no adjusting, which is a first. The pattern is Kwik Sew 3400.

The skirt panels are a bit of a pain to put together due to how big they are. When I make the actual garment, I'm going to go slow and work on it during the weekends. I take care of Oliver during the week while my boyfriend works. And with the layers of lining, main fabric, and organza overlay, I have to cut each skirt panel three times. It's going to be a lot of work but will look amazing when done.

I realize I have a ton of sewing projects lined up (just look at previous posts), but this is the one I want to do the most so it gets priority. I'll eventually get to sewing everything I want :P
