Meanwhile, still waiting on swatches. So far, though everything I've recieved has been a lot redder than my more burgundy fabric. Selfishly, I want something that matches so I can redo my pants in stretch, so I am order swatches from fabric.com, which had some more promising (and cheap) fabrics.

Velvet: https://www.fabric.com/buy/0540029/stretch-velvet-burgundy

Lining: https://www.fabric.com/buy/uo-057/silky-satin-charmeuse-solid-magenta

Lining: https://www.fabric.com/buy/bv-628/silky-satin-charmeuse-solid-fuchsia


Have you checked out Spandex world for possible fabric? I got a really pretty stretch velvet in burgundy/deep read a while back. I'm fairly positive it was the burgundy stretch velvet on this page:
https://spandexworld.com/c3/catalog/browse/category/9?&cid=13

I'll have to look at what color it was, exactly, and if I have the swatch still (or the fabric itself).
scarlet witch costume - ignore the mess please

I'll dig through my distressingly excessive collection of fabric and scraps to see if I can find some of it. If I remember correctly, the drape was really lovely on it, and I used the same fabric in a different color for the cape, which worked perfectly when lined.

It still looks a little redder than mine, but if you do have a swatch, please do share it next time we run across each other.

Hello

I used the link on the previous post for the Facebook group and it said it was unavailable. Please let me know how to get connected. Thank you.

I think the group might be set to Secret or Closed or some other privacy setting that's keeping me from seeing it and joining, too. I'd like to join as well.

My bad! Thanks for pointing that out. It should all be fixed now.

With the holidays, maybe it would be smarter for us to get our materials ordered in December and then start the first build days in January.

I shared this in the facebook group, but I think we've finalized the materials list and can start ordering:

Happy New Year all! May 2019 be the year we get an awesome group of battle handmaidens together.

If folks are ready for it, I think it might be time to start ordering materials. I'm happy to be the central point for ordering, so you all can repay me. I know that some of this is a big chunk all at once, so I am happy to work with folks about a paying in chunks over time. PM me if that is something you will need to do.

So here is what everyone will be getting for materials:

Trim (https://www.etsy.com/listing/468641152/2-yards-21mm-metallic-gold-jacquard?fbclid=IwAR3JGR5FxFBaxDoZybQ8RH0jKymtUlJo7H26hnAaVvUGVJJSC4zB7aP3YpY): 10 yd per person at $3.50 per 2 yds = $17.50
Velvet (https://www.fabric.com/buy/0540029/stretch-velvet-burgundy): 7 yd per person at $6.98 per yd = $48.86
Lining (https://www.fashionfabricsclub.com/p185719_38847-red-charmeuse?fbclid=IwAR3kc1QsH4nUg511DtmmO203tUecd5ITXlUpew_bp9UZYR_2STOmJHakC54): 5.5 yd per person at $5.95 per yd = $32.73
Shirt (https://www.fashionfabricsclub.com/p241959_66481-coral-red-tencel-blend-knit?fbclid=IwAR02Kq4peQwyORI7RBZMG3vUbVq83_8pXs_0zSFR4NCpxAn2R0j61Fgj1m0): 2 yd per person at $8.50 per yd = $17.00
Thread (https://www.fashionfabricsclub.com/p73437_matching-spool-of-thread-matching-spool-of-thread?fbclid=IwAR2XKULofP0Nv8sUaffK-SskZaFeo-IA6hOYk77RF7KyMHHohzdkYNOTkv4): 2 spools of thread per person at $2.80 apiece = $5.60

(Everyone will get their own matching thread for velvet and then we'll share a pool of threads that matches the trim, shirt, and lining.)

So, that is a total of $121.69 per person.

You can paypal that to me at hurricanepixie@yahoo.com.

Would it work for folks to aim to getting things ordered by mid-January so we can start doing our first build days later this month? I would need final confirmations of who wants to be involved and at least a first payment from everyone before we can order.

I suspect we might get free shipping on some of this, but if not, I'll ask for a collection to help with shipping after I've ordered everything.

It's not too late! We ordered materials for the first 7 people already, but another 4 are waiting until their finances recover from the shut-down, so you are welcome to join in with Round 2.
