Sewing With Sakaki!

I finally jived with my sewing machine, and mucho progress was thus made on Leaf this weekend. The yellow underdress is more or less done (minus the straps). The green overskirt has been cut out and I am assembling that now. I trimmed the wig, too ... it'll need some hairspray at con to give it the proper floof, but it will work, methinks.

Attempting to turn narrow tubes inside out for the straps just wasn't working for me, so now I really want green bias tape to make the edges of the straps look neater. Or maybe I'll just make 'em again and bigger, since I don't have green bias tape. Phooey. The green fabric, though nice, wants to be a shag rug sometimes. ::trim trim::

I've named my sewing machine Bobby, because loading the bobbin is a pain. Bobby also has a tendency to unexpectly come unthreaded on his top, which is rather annoying. I think he's got some issues he needs to work out, so I'll be there for him, if only out of necessity!

Zippers and I have a love-hate relationship. I love irons, though, and they love me.

7:02 p.m. Sakaki has just realized that she got the skirt confuzzled and has sewn up where the zipper is supposed to be. Oops.
7:25 p.m. Sakaki has finished ripping out all stitches. Reassembles, pins, and then realizes she hadn't screwed up in the first place. Oops.

I straightened my room yesterday, but you can't tell anymore. Haha.
