“…I’m not resewing that.” My words to my sister Maru when we realized that we forgot to add the darts in the shoulders of the collar. The pattern online didn’t call for it, however we had added it to based on how the paper pattern was acting and the fabric was behaving in a similar way.

To do the darts properly, I would need to tear out all my stitching sans the twill tape. Since I personally don’t like how close to the edge my twill tape ended up being… I would want to redo that as well. So no. No. No, No. NO.

I know a lot of cosplayers wouldn’t hesitate to tear it out but since I’m such a n00b with sewing, Youmacon being only a month away, having a full time job as well as rushing to finish convention stock this is not feasible. Each sewing appointment has to accomplish something and this is a relatively minor point when the rest of my cosplay isn’t done. As my sister pointed out, who is really going to look at the squiggly stitches? They are going to have a lot more interesting things to look at.

So yay! Progess!

Cosplay Progress

Slowly but surely!
