The grey and milk chocolate crepe de chine I ordered for the steampunk outfits arrived yesterday and it's everything I imagined it would be. There is something special about the feeling of silk and it drapes so well, it should be perfect for the overskirts.
Sometime back I ordered pyjama/jumpsuits for all my Pukifees as well a couple of spares for the two PF's to come. However, I couldn't order a yellow set for Cookie, because the supplier didn't have the colour. Well I used one pair to gauge the sizing and I made a set for her myself. Not the most ethical thing I have done, but I shan't be making them to sell and I couldn't see Cookie miss out could I?
Making them entirely by hand has helped me overcome my trepidation of working on such small outfits using stretch fabric. Even though I have made leggings before quite successfully, I have always worried about the fabric stretching too much as I sewed the seams. Now I feel more confident, I may even attempt a few casual tee shirts and dresses, as my Pukifees mostly own clothes which are quite dressy.
