The Day Before Atlantis

 

I’m fucking awesome at doing everything at the last minute.

Like today.

I got a whole load of my costume finished.

Last night I hand finished the hem’s on my murder robes – there’s about four days of hand sewing in this thing.

And the back:

That’s the seam inside the hood:

And what the inside seams look like:

Just a close up of that nice, almost invisible hand stitching:

Then I got started on hemming the sleeves of the bottom layer of robes. Fancy decorative stitches on the sewing machine meant I didn’t have to hand sew it invisibly:

And I also tacked down the neck facing, you can see it showing through here because I’d just ironed it:

Then I figured that I had to add a new project to the mix. This is something very loosely based on Arya Stark’s belt in the new Game of Thrones series. I’m going to make a second one I think to go over it, made from hemp cord and beads:

The fastening, same as I used on the Mythlore belt:

And then knotted and all together with the top layers. I also have a hero style belt to wear over it, so you won’t see the cord the macrame is attached to:

Then after going to see Rich at Evenlode, we had chips in Chipping Norton. Wonder if this is where David Cameron gets his chips from. They were pretty good:
