Today I made the finishing touches on my costume paying attention to the smaller detail. Therefore I hand stitched the final touches in order to make sure that they were neat and accurate. I also went through my designs with Kate discussing with her how this was the first costume that I had made entirely by hand. She explained to me how there were certain short cuts I could have taken when creating my costume which would have saved a lot time and effort in the long run. However I can take these tips onto any future designs I create. She also suggested to me that I should use Fabric scissors with ridges in order to prevent some fraying in my fabric.
