I started working on Bakumatsu Renka Saitou's shirt yesterday and I just finished it. I didn't take progress photos of every step because it was a rather simple project and I focused more on getting it done because, as we all know, Tracon is this coming weekend and I also will be leaving home already on Thursday.. and Wednesday goes for packing stuff so.. yeah.
I will now show those few progress photos I took while making the shirt:
|Front and back pieces cut out + arm hole facings|
|I had to widen the collar to get the thing over my head. My chosen fabric didn't stretch at all.|
(I did widen it more than what this shows in the end)
After that it was time to attach the facings. I had never done this before so I was worried the facings wouldn't fit, I angled them wrong etc. But luckily they ended up being pretty damn perfect.
|Test pinning facings in place to check that they were of the right size..|
|Sewn together, zigzaged around the "flap edge" and stitched on top so that the facings stay better on the 'wrong side'.|
|Making a self-made facing patterns for the collar because the original pattern was wrongly curved after the widening earlier...|
|Test pinning the collar facing on|
And by that I was finished ~
|I has a shirt! :'DDD|
Now just to make the glove and get ready for the con ~
