It's quilter's broadcloth. It was cheaper than muslin, since it was on sale for $1.99/yard, and I get an employee discount.

I'm also going to use the mock up for the lining, since there's not many seams and the gauze is pretty thin stuff.
It's getting there.◊ Just have to hem the chiffon, and then I can get started on the wings.
Wow, that is looking good. How is the chiffon attached at the neckline?
It's just folded over the top hem and topstitched down. There's a channel for elastic in the neckline, but it only goes through the gauze and the lining.
OK, that makes sense.
Oh, wow, DG, that's looking great!
Also this thread is just the thing for me. Bleaching the sin off-white out of the yarn I got. It requires fifteen minutes with undiluted bleach, and since I didn't have quite enough to soak all of them I added 1 cup of water with the 2 cups of bleach I dumped in there.

A second bleach bath for the yarn as the first bath only resulted in an ivory color (and yes, it is noticeable◊). Crocheting the remainder of the white yarn while I wait. Fifteen more minutes.
Finished up my costume. Pictures forthcoming, since I'll get someone to take some snaps of Drunkscriblerian and I at Norwescon.
Front view of the finished costume.◊ I borrowed the mask from Drunkscriblerian, since I had just finishedthe wings the night before.◊ The feathers in the back are a out of array, since I was sitting down earlier and they got a bit mussed.

Wow! Tres kewl!.
I decorated an old denim bag◊ of my mother's today, with iron-on patches and assorted buttons.
A pincushion ring.◊ I got tired of chasing my regular one around the table while trying to sew.
Damn, there's a good couple of things I'd like to put together: a steampunk/futuristic Mauser Broomhandle pistol (not Han Solo's blaster, the same base but different style, with a "Predator"-style laser pointer), a harness to sling my katana across my back, tsukamaki grips for my Springfield 1911 and maybe some plastic plates to reinforce my riot vest (it'd be more for show anyway). Too bad I'm broke and I don't have tools.

This one's not-computer-based hobby is beadwork. Sadly, she's been neglecting it lately, but she is not about to forget it forever.
The latest creation Nothing fancy, but nice enough to look at.
And this is the result of trying to get rid of left-over beads. Heh, and thing is, there is still plenty of left-overs.
It's always amazing what can happen when you're just trying to use up stuff. I think that's when creativity really comes into play.
Heh. So, my headphones broke. The band part that goes over your head snapped off, and went missing. So I've improvised. I now have a snazzy pair of sunglasses with the ear parts of headphones attached. I like them. Makes Mowing, walking, etc, really fun.
Making three dresses for summer. All I know is that one is purple, one is white, one is blue. There may be buttons involved, and if there are I will be sewing all of the buttonholes by hand.

No sewing machine?
I have one, but it's ancient and only does the basic stitches.
Suuuck. I got a new machine earlier this year that does automatic buttonholes. I don't know how I ever lived without it.
