[Battle] Tauriel Cosplay - Pattern Prep and Cutting

I've been so busy working on my battle Tauriel costume this week that I've neglected updating ya'll on my progress... ;)

Just a word in advance: I will have this cosplay completed way before the Hobbit 3 premiere on December 17th. Which just means... I'll have to figure something else out to keep me busy in the long months ahead. xD Maybe start working on Arwen's coronation dress? I mean, I've got the fabric already... :)

Anyway -- back to the pattern (McCall's 6818).

First up was reading over the instructions for making the pattern, to get an idea of what would be entailed here.

Next, was cutting out the individual pieces from the larger pattern sheets, and then taking some measurements for alterations.


Then ironing the pattern pieces out so everything would lie smoothly when I cut the fabric...


Prepping the fabric to be cut...


And finally, pinning and cutting the fabric. Which is most likely my least favorite part of sewing. That, and sleeves. xD



And here is the end of today's [rather short] post -- but don't worry, more updates coming soon! (;

P.S. THE COSTUME IS ACTUALLY COMING TOGETHER.

    1. Oh yes! :D My [mental] "costumes-to-make" list is getting way too long, so I might as well make some more to check off the list in my downtime! ;)
