That previously mentioned fabric order snafu has thrown the final wrench in the works not only time-wise, but financially. They still have not refunded my money for the fabric they never had in stock, and because of that, I can't order more from another (more trustworthy) source I know.
Maybe the top half?
Already, I can see this being yet another frustrating year of feeling like my outfit isn't quite hitting the mark, or just plain uncomfortable. I really needed a new, plain cotton corset to wear under all of it this year too :-(
I have a lovely one from Dark Garden but it's so beautiful, and it can get really warm in the Cow Palace. I'd be afraid of staining the silk, and I don't have time to make a sleeved chemise + cover.
Let's see what happens though. I really need to stay positive right now, since it seems just about everything has been working against me this year. Seriously, 2013 has been one of the most craptastic years in a long time.
If anything, I'll be sewing during the Dickens fair run, and might have something before the last 2 weekends.
I can hope, right?
