Week 8: Done!

Yes, this is quite overdue, see Week 9’s post for semi-explanation.

Due to fabric limitations I wasn’t able to totally abide by my original sketch, but I am nonetheless happy with the outcome.  It’s faintly deco-y with all the angles, which was unexpected.

So, not like, totally “air” I guess.  But in my opinion the winning look wasn’t either.  I decided to go barefoot, ’cause that is my personal view of Mercury (never been a big fan of the wing’d sandals), who was some of the primary inspiration.  Fleet of foot one cannot be in heels.

Problems:

  1. The undershirts should have been longer to hit the hip better.
  2. Pants don’t fit perfectly, but they’re comfortable, so I’m calling it a draw.
  3. Should have totes made a hat, but was worried about being too aviator.
