As for the Butterick pattern, that particular one is very straight forward. You probably won't even need the directions, as it really is an obvious "piece a fits to piece b" type dress.
Oh, thanks for the tip. I'll ask them next time I'm over there. I also appreciate the feedback on the pattern. I've always been nervous about Butterick.

When shopping for my vinyl last night (leather is still to pricy even the scraps are $25) I pick up a new white linen fabric for the undershirt as the fabric I got online remand scratch/stiff despite repeat washing for 100% cotton.

Also picked up my bow.... I think I'm making mine now. It a rather thick fiberglass body that has no give. Forget getting the one I linked because it seems more leather then I would like to carry around. I hope this works but I'll be carving it out tonight.

I have both version of the Brave Tartan up for sale now.

Well I tired to get my velveteen dry-cleaned first but the cleaner highly recommend me not do it with their machines. Might cause streaking was the issue. O_o

So soakwash it is!!! But it also means I wash after I've sewn it up so that I use less soap. ^__^ They also sell it at Aqua by la Vie En Rose store in Canada if they are not in the main La Vie En Rose stores.


I also recreated the hem of Merida's Epilog and Disney Parks dress (see the full pattern in 2 yards view)

Again I'm waiting on swatches before I can list for sale.



Edit:
Here a a few bow options with LARP bows.

Also attached is my drawing for the knots on Merida's quiver. The in movie ones not the strange one on the toy version. The size is 2" high repeat.

Sorry to triple post... But it do have a question for you ladies.

Here is my fabrics. Teal cotton velveten, a texture rayon, and white linen. (which Is will dye cream latter)
Flash

Daylight
http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c3...a_fabric_2.jpg

When i bought my fabric I was going by a few of the teaser images the cape looked brown but it a shade between brown and olive grey. I've tried to find something like it but have failed miserable over then on wool (but I'm allergic to wool so that's a no go for me.)

Do you think I can get way with this?



Tea dyed my feathers last night and cut down my bow shafts and sanded the ends as well. Feather are still damp in the photo and lightened a bit after drying

Also my attempts to make a bendable foam bow have failed so I commissioned this person for the base.
http://www.etsy.com/listing/10330497...vival-recurve?

This seller also has some amazing bows.

Ani_Bee, your fabric colours look good. I would say if you can, maybe try and dye the cloak? And if not, don't worry about it and just go with the brown. It matches the reference you had at the time, and really, I don't think people will nit-pick

Yes it's a lot of fabric to dye with iDye Poly and I'm not sure how well 7 yards will take. Last time I dyed that much fabric I ended up with random spots. I'll keep looking though.

Hand sewing my quiver right now as my sewing machine is still MIA from Sears! I'm made the form out of 4 10X13" sheets plastic canvas first as the vinyl is flimsy. My quiver will look longer on me because I have shorter legs compare to Merida >_< but I need it this length to hold my 30" arrows to match the bow and my draw length.

Well, I started to work on Merida. The base of the dress is done and I can tell that I'll need to shorten this thing later.

So, I'm not sure if I'm as pleased with the Merry wig as I thought I would be. I'm on a backorder for it, so I don't have it yet, but I've seen some pictures of those who got the first order in. I still feel like it needs to be longer and with more up top.
I just don't know.

It look thin to me even though it's not. You really need two of them to build up the volume with teasing it completely out. I'm on back order as well for a second one. But I might have to sell mine off and go with the natural Light Ginger wigs I got for Aug. 24 (Fan Expo).

Longer would have helped as well.

Yeah. I'm only really pleased with the look a claudia+glinda will give you, but I wish they both came in pumpkin or light copper red instead of only both coming in the dark version. There's just no winning here for me, ha. I may just have to settle for the Merry wig at first, and then as I can afford it, order another wig to help fluff it out and maybe lengthen. We'll see, I'm going to try and not stress over it right now.

I got my bow in, it's the simple, pale wooden one from ebay, not entirely the proper shape, but I'm hoping to add to it at the grip and ends to give the illusion of more curve in it. I might end up just making a bow later on, but this is what I have for now.

I really need to go and buy my pattern and fabrics. I think I'm putting it off because I both want to and don't want to start sewing, lol. I need to clean up some before I start sewing, honestly.

Never the less, I'm going to Jo-Anns today to at least get some other things, if I don't end up buying fabric. I need to get the leather and beads for the bow grip, feathers and dowels for arrows, and look into materials for the quiver and belt.

If you decide to sell of your Merry wig, let me know. I'm in the market

I've been eyeing a couple of different bows on ebay, but I'm waiting to buy until after Pennsic, in the hopes that maybe I'll find one there that I like.

Here's an image of the Merry wig after I played with it for about 10 minutes:

http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphoto...17805668_n.jpg

I got it even fluffier after I snapped the picture. I think with more teasing and some hairspray I can get the volume I want.

Another thing too about the Arda wig it look SMALL on me because I have a bigger builed and I'm 5'8".

kiggi did the wig you have any tags The wig is New Look brand so it should have a colour and model name. I'm guessing it's in GT_1000?

http://www.cosplaysupplies.com/store...-MaryG-1000-NE should i laught that is' also call Mary (Arda's is Merry.)
