If she looks a tad unhappy, she is. Draken is not big on having fittings. Usually I fit clothing to Cleo- she is my resident 'model on call' for fittings. But Draken has some "special" attributes that require I fit directly to her. Her horns and tail must be taken into account. This is a dry run- I never cut the actual material until I am sure what I am making will fit properly. This cape is hand and machine basted. Once I am done fussing with it, I will rip the seams and use it for a pattern. The yellow fleece cost 1.00 for almost 2 yards in the remnants bin.
I rarely fail to make a mess when I paint- which is what you see on the label.
After Draken is finished with all of her fittings, I will apply her hair. She will remain a little spitting and hissing baldy until I am done with her garments. Right now she is clawing her way through my goodie drawer looking for weapons. As if her fangs and nails aren't enough! Pretty sure she wants a staff as well. I will go twig hunting soon if she continues on this path...
Skirt made of batik in layers of shredded single pieces.
Vest style top made of white felt with faux white fur and vintage embroidered ribbon.
|Cape has soft suede ties at the throat. |
I would have fussed more with the hood, but both of us were
feeling pretty impatient- best not push things. I will fuss after she has hair.
I lined her boots with the same material as the cape.
Everything fits. It has been a long day for both of us. Tomorrow, she gets hair and then an outdoor photo shoot.
Next Post will have her finished and will include some better photos of her garments and her wearing them.
