I just hope I survive the sewing machine part. I've only used machines on faux fur for those RCH wigs I make. >< Well that and the collar and interfacing of Gabe's ren garb. I didn't have time to do the rest of the shirt myself so my mom finished it and the vest.
I'll be doing Venus first though so that should get me used to it. I'm just not expecting a miracle on my very first major sewing job. Capes do not equal Sailor fuku.
