Looks like the amazon.com seller where I originally got a yard of the striped fabric has restocked, so I ordered 6 yards for the seamstress to make the custom Beetlejuit Ice suit. There should also be enough left over for at least one kid suit, too. |
I also won some 1930's plastic eyeglass frames on ebay for undre $6 including shipping, we'll see if I like them for steampunk/costuming or if they'll join other unused items in the costume closet.
But I'm done spending money tonight. I think I'll work on the pinstripe vest since I'm awake and the kids aren't. Got the side seams torn open at costume group meetup, and ran a stitch down them at home to prevent fraying. Now I'll add about 2-3 inches of fabric under each arm so it fits, and see how it looks with my black suit for steampunk.
