I made my first pair of deco nails. I have to mention and thank Violet LeBeaux here, because she was my insiration to make deco nails. She makes such awesome nails, and I wanted to make a pair of my own. I made a pair that would match my blue skirt (The one I made for the Alice in Wonderland movie). I used pink, blue, and white for an OTT sweet look, with nail jewels and pearls. My theme was "Nummy cakes". Here they are:
I think that they turned out really cute, what do you think?
I've been modifying patterns and making mock-ups, mostly for the bodice, to fine tune it before I work on the real thing. I'm going to line the bodice, but probably not the skirt part. We'll see. I have finished the underskirt though! (Almost, upon finishing I realizing that the skirt rises up in the back because of all the ruffles, so I do need to add another row). Here are pics of it:
I decided to make the underskirt seperate, that way I can wear it by itself (with a blouse or cutsew) or under another dress.
I'll post an update on the Gothic Lolita dress project as soon as I have one. Sorry it's been so long since my last post, and thanks for bearing with me!
