Lady Elizabeth Midford WIP by kirilee Lady Elizabeth Midford WIP by kirilee
This is my Lady Elizabeth from Black Butler WIP. I'm finished the costume - will be taking proper photos this weekend which I will add onto this WIP before I submit my entry for the Madman National Cosplay Contest 2014.

This has to date been the biggest undertaking I have ever done sewing wise. The most epic. The most daunting. The most challenging. And the most rewarding.

I just wanted to share this with you all and see if you had any suggestions - is it easy enough to follow?

For how long at a time do you work on your projects? I find it hard to keep going after the third or fourth fitting before I even cut the fabric I'm going to use out! Maybe I just need more space so I can leave everything out just as it was so I can pick up where I left off without messing around trying to find pieces that I put away or moving other projects out of the way...

Love your work and passion!

I very rarely do mock ups. I only do them if it is a very fitted piece or trying something I've never done before.
as for how long, each project is different. This one was the longest time I've spent on a project- about 90 or so hours. Most are 20-40 hours for epic dresses :)
