I chose my fabric, and since I am in the time crunch now, I'm not doing a mock up. I'm just going to go for it and hope for the best. Well, kinda like I always do, honestly. The only time I really do mock ups is if it's the lining of something, heh. Ah, well. Some day I will be awesome and do the mock up. Today is not that day.

I traced the pattern out during the babies' nap time, and hopefully I can get everything cut out tonight after the kids are in bed. I decided to go with a pale gray-green velveteen that I've had forever. It's very soft and lovely.

It is a blend of these two colors, with the light sheen the lighter color and the shade being the darker. I really do like it.



If I have time, I'll piece what I have left of the black faux fur for an end result along these lines:



If I don't get the fur on it this go around, I'll add it later for sure, though, and wear it to the archery event without. Fun, fun. The only real downside is I knew I should have used gold ribbon on my hat flower thing instead of the red. Doh! Hah! I'll go back and change that another time.

Anyway, I better go make dinner. Trying something new tonight... Some kind of curry custard by my hubby's request. Spicy! Hopefully it turns out as yummy as it sounded, heh.

I've had my eye on this spencer for a while, with this velveteen in my mind. So pretty!

That's going to be so pretty! A marabou boa would simulate the look of that black fur trim fabulously, and it can be whip stitched into place really quickly if you don't want to piece that fur together. Plus, they're cheap, and Joann's has them! ^^ Unless you're allergic to feathers, in which case you should ignore me completely. lol

Hm.... I will definitely keep the feather boa in mind!

Ooh, I love it! Wonderful way to use the velveteen, too.

Yeah. I've been trying to think how I would use it, and this image just stuck around in my head.

That's going to be wonderful! You can take comfort in the fact that you're not the only one in crunch time. ;) We'll be a colorful bunch - my spencer will be blue, and Chris's pelisse is purple!

How fun! I'll just be wearing one of my white gowns underneath. If I *don't* get this finished, I'll just wear my curtain challenge spencerino, which is red. But I *do* hope I can finish this!
