Costuming Five

I started the green costume today.  It didn't start well. 

I was told by the person who purchased all of the materials that the store was half a yard short of what was called for in the pattern.  Now, usually you end up with some left-overs when you cut a pattern.  Not this time.  We really needed that short half yard.

This is what it looks like when you don't have enough material for your patterns.  You tend to also get a little dropping sensation in your gut.  And  mumble something like, "Damn."

Oops.  Not enough material
Thankfully, I was able to find another bolt of the exact same fabric.

What it looks like when you do have enough material

So, I was able to get it all cut out and start sewing.

Pile to be sewn.  And yardwork that needs to be done, just outside the window.
