I spent many hours the other night working on my Doctor cosplay for GenCon. But I didn't get nearly as far as I had intended. In fact I only got one part done: the piping on the back of the jacket.
It may have taken all evening to do, but I'm really happy with how it turned out. I still need to give it a good steaming so the ease lays more smoothly, but I think it really gives a nice pop of color across the back.
At the same time, my husband was out having fun with a friend. The result was that he arrived home very happy and very muddy. So, we spent a good chunk of time this weekend de-mudding him, his clothes, and omg his shoes.

I was working on attaching the lining in the last couple of days, and last night I realized I might have to re-cut some of the pieces for the vents in the back.
|can you see what's wrong here?|
|and now this is how I feel...|
So I could feel better about making some progress, I also did a quick fix-up of another kind. I've been feeling totally nervous over how short the skirt is. And I had some eyelet bloomers that I had made to go under my kilt when I used to do contra dancing.
They actually end up being a little bit long for this application, and I've never felt they were particularly 'pretty.' So I added a couple of rows of elastic thread at the bottom.
Amazing how something so simple can make such a huge difference!
I guess that's all for now. Hope you are having a good week!
