5 days until PurgTwo more button holes left (I hate button holes). Friday I made a sleeve (lined) and attached it. Then ripped it off and reattached it correctly *sigh*. Saturday I attached the other sleeve. If I’d known what I was doing when I “designed” the Waffe I think I could have eliminated at least 3 (possibly 6) of the button holes. Oh well. I’ll know better next time.
Sunday night I started on the guards for the skirt portion. It’ll have two guards (2″ and 3″) that are 1 inch apart and about 2 inches from the hem. They’re going well. Oh, minor gripe: Fabric marking pens for making white marks on black fabric SUCK. By the time I got done drawing the lines down the length of the skirt (375″ worth), the lines at the beginning of the fabric had faded to the point I almost couldn’t see them.
At this point I need to finish the guards, pleat the skirt, attach skirt to doublet, add hook/eye to bottom corners of doublet, hem the skirt, add guards to sleeves, and bind the sleeve seam allowance. Then I’m done… with the Waffe. (wheee) Still need to complete the shirt (minor stuff) and make the pants. I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to get it all done though.
