Just finished Joe's Explorer's Coat...

I designed it myself! And reverse engineering the folding cargo pockets (god bless my foundation in Origami) was quite challenging.

He'll be wearing it to the Steampunk Adventure at the Academy Of Sciences on Oct. 11th.....

I'd be sewing if I could get to my machine. Mr. Miimno Teagarden has moved into my little bitty house, and we're still wading through piles of books and furniture. After that all gets put away, I can look at sewing something like this:

http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/patterns/sewingpatterns.pl?patternid=16283

Except, I'll do the jacket in a heavier fabric in a dark color. Would like to make the jacket front with lapels and a vest/tie/cravat in the center panel so it looks like a tuxedo/frock coat. I'll also make the sleeves full-length. I'll use the outer bustle only (modified), and wear it with a pair of tight-fitted, striped pants and tall-laced boots.

I plan to wear it when I play the musical saw at some point. I figure that if I'm busking on a street corner with the saw and play like crap, maybe people will at least throw some money at me for the awesomeness of the costume.

At least, that is the plan...

Ooh! I just got that pattern myself. I do admit to being a little intimidated by having to size it down to someone who is 4ft2. All those fitted pieces will have to lose 2-4in in the middle..... But that is why god made muslin I guess...

Yep! Hooray for muslin and cheap Goodwill sheets. I'm sure you'll figure it out Sophia, as you seem to have no shortage of talent.

Spooky, I nearly bought that pattern as well! In fact I still might, safe in the knowledge we're on different continents and no doubt have very different ideas for it anyway.

Does anyone else get Repetative Strain pain in their shoulder if they're sewing for too long? Any recommendations for what to do about it?

I'm not a doctor, but I have a lot of shoulder, back and joint pains, and a very useful chiropractor. Can you tell me where the pain is? I might have had something similar, and may be able to provide a useful stretch.

Also, it is important to make sure your sewing setup is ergonomically correct. I am an industrial hygienist, and may be able to provide you with some documents to help with that.

My chef costume rehabiltation is going well after a lot of frustration. (Grommet tape and fake leather grommet ribbon are so not the same thing.) I call it Dr Steel A glow glow because the wig glows in the dark and I pulled a lot of inspiration from the back and forth video. I still need to add the button and ribbon detailing to the back but I am on my way.

Re: RSI- at the very top of my left scapula, on the inside below my shoulder. I think you may have a point about looking at the set-up, because of where the lamp is I do tend to hunch over to examine it as the work goes through.

Thanks for the complement Mrs. Sullivan. I think I may send a picture of it to Dr Steel if I can get a good one. I just finished the back and it turned out lovely. I don't think the people at work are going to know what hit them when I come in.

Because I only have 2637521317 other projects to finish before Halloween and need to get my house tidy for a guest next week... last night I decided to start work on a jacquard and velvet bolero jacket. It's meant to be worn open, has legomuttonish sleeves. I got all the jacquard bits done and am just needing to finish the black velvet trim. I decided I needed this thing to add a little more variety to my wardrobe for the con.

Well, now that I've got my new sewing machine (my old girl gave out on me after four years of faithful service) I've got to break it of that awful habit that new machines seem to have of constantly snapping threads, binding up, and just generally being annoying. So I stitched up a stingray costume, a commission from my coach for her niece, and now I'm going to finish up that corset-waistcoat dealio I showed off in the salacious thread!

Well I hope you manage to find a similar one for the other cuff. Or are you planning on asymmetry?
And... Stingray costume?!? As soon as I tried to visualise I realised how ludicrous the idea was! Will begging aid in the immediate display of a photograph?

I'm afraid photos of the stingray costume will not be forthcoming as I didn't have the foresight to take pictures before handing it over to my coach. It's simple to imagine though, a semi-circle that drapes over the shoulders with a long pointy tail in the back. Simple. =D
