Sewing for guys

Usually when I sew for men it's costumes for theater. this week it was for my cousin's wedding. I have to admit I completely underestimated this project. I was thinking, oh, it's just vests, no big deal. They weren't a big deal but they took more time than I expected all the same!

A work in progress

My girls have a lot of faith in my sewing skills, a LOT. My 11 yr old picked out this outfit from a cartoon and requested it. It's Bloom from Winx in her Sirenex/Harmonix outfit.
Here's what we have so far.
We're getting fishnet tights from the Halloween store once it opens and I will be sewing ribbons to them for the leg portion of the costume. She has a pair of wings picked out we need to order and we're going to spray paint the crown to match the outfit too. I'll be sure to post more pictures once it's done!

Fin Mermaid

This little mermaid has been delayed at my house, Las Vegas got some rain today and the subsequent flooding sent my day different directions then I planned.

She will be off first thing tomorrow and I will hopefully be able to get to the stores I need for my next project!
