Progress, such as it is, on the Theda Bara costume:
- one borrowed sewing machine (thanks, Matty!)
- some gold chiffon, but probably not enough to make anything with
- a folder on my desktop full of Theda-as-Cleopatra images
- two laughably bad sketches
Ahahahahahaha. I have no skill at either drawing or patterning. Also, I am very likely terrible at draping as well, but as I don't even have a dress form to drape on, we won't find out how bad I am at legitimately draping (as opposed to the "let's just swoosh this fabric around my torso and hope" draping I will end up doing).
Not pictured: extreme amounts of stubbornness and inability to admit defeat. Also not pictured: the hot glue gun that will very likely figure into this project quite heavily.
