Neurotic Owl

flying through clouds of uncertainty on wings of existential dread

Distracted as usual.

Cartoon tour of Pemberley coming soon, I’m pretty definitely almost sure.  In the meantime, here’s a thing I’ve been sidetracked by.  I started planning and collecting fabric for a rococo map dress a WHILE ago — maybe two years, even?  And of course then I didn’t get to it, and then I was losing a bunch of weight so I put it on hold, and then I didn’t get to it some more.  And THEN, I found myself with a fair amount of free time, and god forbid I clean my apartment, right?Mapdress-2

These lacing hooks gave out immediately, but that’s okay!  Digging through my stash to see if I had tiny D rings led to finding tiny sprockets instead:

Who does cartridge pleats voluntarily?  This dumbass, that’s who.  Also, K has already tagged ‘Voluntary Cartridge Pleats’ as her new imaginary band name, so no stealsies.

Soooooo . . . I was going to be making a fairly traditional underskirt out of another map print, but now I’m not sure.  Underskirt?  Ridiculous cargo bloomers?  Underskirt pulled up over ridiculous cargo bloomers?

Mapdress-4

Next up, tons of trim, some decisions to make, and, eventually, accessories.  I’m going to need a dark blue wig and a new ship fascinator, stat.
