That's the exact tutorial I tried. And I can get it- to a point, and then one half of the zig-zag rips off in the middle and destroys the whole thing. I don't know why.. D< I almost got it last time but then it popped twice. The thread didn't break, it just- popped.

You Alice looks amazing, that wig is perfect.

That is weird. My method is sewing only about a foot, tying it off to secure it, and then continuing in the same pattern. What type of fabric are you using? That could be a factor if it's too lightweight, or maybe the tension is too tight?

I'm just using a plain cotton that I doubled layered for some extra meat. I was thinking it might be a tension problem and I'll test it out later, tomorrow maybe. If not I'm gonna try your "sew a foot" method. xD

Thanks so much! :3 I had fun with making Alice! That bodice was a pain to draft, but so worth it.

Annnddd...I finally got around to seeing the new "Arrow" series. Too early to make a judgement, but I really like it so far. It's also made me excited to see the new design for Black Canary. I've been procrastinating waaay too much on Dinah and maybe it'll give me a boost to work on her

I gotta sew my first french seam O.O

Oh that's out already? I didn't know that, I wanna give that show a try.

And the mention of Dinah (besides the cat) reminds me of the outfits I WISH I could make :/

@Link: Best of luck, but don't overwhelm yourself!~

Tulipe: I used casa satin from Joann's. It's the perfect weight and sheen, but be sure to serge or zig-zag stitch the seams, as it tends to fray like crazy. (I even used glitter finish for the belt and white panels~it only shows up in person, though, not pictures, so a personal choice there) The original dresses have sequin fabric for the lapels but I cheaped out and used confetti dot sequin fabric instead :P

It's a basic overbust corset, but with a ton of decorations But I say that you finish what's on your plate first!~

And who's up for a Halloween event at Balboa Park? It's October 27th. and I'll probably be bringing my puppy (I want to make her a Sparky costume from Frankenweenie :P)

Someone on here said I should probably make it into a two piece and my mother wouldn't mind helping with it

I'd like to go to that! I probably could since the Halloween party I'm attending that same day isn't until later x3

Edit: Oh and I forgot to add that as of yesterday I started watching My Little Pony on Netflix ( I was in a depressing mood and I decided to watch it) and I'm just like Twilight Sparkle and Fluttershy combain xD

Hope to see you at the park, Link! Be on the look out for Alice

And woohoo! I just sold a Gunter plush on my etsy! ^O^

Oh, and is Once Upon a Time even trying anymore? They need a MASSIVE plot device to get things going again. It's practically stagnant. And Dr. Whale? Come on, the next episode is a Halloween special that deals with reanimating the dead....dun, dun, dun! Who else? :P

I've been slacking horribly on homework. I got super lazy with my English stuff, and haven't read the articles- and ending up getting a B on my test. I forgot to pick up the book on Thursday and I'm not ready to talk about it today in class D: I am disappoint. And I've been lagging on my CC paper too. With only eight weeks left I need to step it up, yo.

Gonna attempt that new gathering technique when I get back from class today. Since Halloween is next week I really should finish that. xD I wish I could go to all the events with you guys! Hopefully next year!

Once Upon a Time last night was kind of... eh. I liked Belle's parts, you go girl, but all in all. I really liked last weeks episode though. Snow is awesome.

I'm looking into buying tickets back home. My eyes are on the 12th of December. Were we all potentially planning the Hobbit thing, still? xD

Oh, and I've been taken over by comic books. I just want to cosplay all the comic things. Especially since a new Young Avengers comic is coming out in January~
