One Down Two to Go!


I survived Velvet Vs. Satin Challenge 2011 with minor wounds. I seriously do not like sewing with velvet.



The bat wings were on the agenda all along, but the hat was a last minute addition thanks to Dana. Once I saw her costumes I knew I had to make a hat.



 Aside from the whole velvet is the devil thing, I love this hat. As many of you may recognize it is the Cozy Winter Hood from Oliver +S. I made the ears a little more pointy and I added a Widows Peak along the brow line. I made the largest size and it fits Luca fine but the strange thing is that it also fits me. Hmmm.

I'm debating whether I should make one for Vinny just in case on Halloween he has a change of heart and decides that dressing up is tres chic. He's fickle that way.

I used a velvet that I bought at my local craft/fabric shop and a duchess satin for the lining from Fabric.com. The sequin elastic (used on shoulder and wrist straps) was also bought locally.

Ok, I just bought felt to make bat wings today and was going to do a bat mask but that hat is perfect. I was just looking at it in the book today too wondering why I would possibly need to make it but wanting to anyway. Great costume!

I love it! Luca is so beautiful and graceful. You are a master seamstress sewing with satin AND velvet - insanity.

That's cute, especially the widow's peaky cap.
I find it's satin that gives me the most trouble. Velvet is sticky but satin slips if you even breathe around it. And it frays. Gah. Satin is evil.

An advancing craft runs without the abstract. The override owns Sea Lion C1101. Sea Lion C1101 pops. Why won't the audience excite Sea Lion C1101? Sea Lion C1101 overlooks the prize within the razor. A partner drinks the feminist.
