More Chunli Photos

The sneaker boots are made by adding fabric spats that are laced up with the canvas shoes.
The dress has a white sash, and will have further gold stripes added, after we do the fitting and get the length exactly where we want it. There are high slits at the side seam and back seam. A zipper will finish the back neckline.
The wrist bands are leather with fabric spikes, painted silver. Aspen is the quality control expert. She approves.

New Halloween Costume

this year, it's Chunli, from Street fighter....
These are the cute little bun holders with the big ribbons...
Above is the first sleeve, and below shows some poly-filling, puffing it up a bit.

Tomorrow I will be making the China inspired dress, (that requires these sleeves) and sash. There are white boot type runners too. The wrist bands have spikes, and I have already made those from fabric, and need to spray paint them silver and attach them to black leather wrist bands.
More photos tomorrow!

Suit Number Three

The last suit if from Vogue 2987 (Anne Klein), and features cool seaming on the jacket. The simple stand up collar and black buttons are classic. The pants are my favourite design with a wide fitted waistband, and I have switched the zipper from the front and put it in the back for a smooth flat front (in my opinion, more flattering).

I can't wait for my sister to try them all on. I still have lots of work to finish the pieces, but need her in person to do that.
