Supergirl Costume

18 Aug

2 blog posts in one day?! I’m trying to be good… keeping a record of what I’m doing, as I’m doing it… anyhow… one day who knows?! somebody might actually read this shizzle.

Right… My sister-in-law is having a party beginning of september… a fancy dress party… ‘heroes and villans’ the Geeky Seamstress in me cried a little cry of happiness!

So this is what I’m going for:

This is what I’ve got so far:

and this is the fabric I’ve got:

I’m a little dissapointed… I dont think I’m going to use the shiny gold fabric (it’s called ‘lame’… that confused me…. shiny lame fabric?) because it’s not on Helen Slater’s costume and has only started to be applied to newer interpretations of the outfit … I thought about making it into binding strip and hemming the skirt, cuffs and cape with it, but it’s not stretchy and if I hem the cuffs with it I won’t be able to put my hands through… and if I don’t it wont look ‘together’ all the gold’ll be on the bottom and nowhere else…

anyhow… thats what I’m thinking so far πŸ™‚
