Now that the previous posts are all cleared up and the images viewable, it's time to actually update this. I'll admit there's not much to update, 'cause we got sidetracked by Padmé, but I'll throw up what we have done previously.

The dried test sleeve:

I like the top transitions, but think the lower one is too harsh. So I expect to use both yellows, two oranges, and some pagoda red. Whether that will be done in four or five dye rounds are yet to be determined.

We also did the new sleeves, now with cotton voile underlining.

Voile pieces were done first, then attached to the velvet, before cutting and edging it all.

And the new sleeve(s):

Just look at that angle; it made me happy.

Well, we have four usable sleeves all done, except lining. Once we are done with Padmé I expect we will do the lining, too. Smile

That looks great! Good call lining it before dying.

We could probably get away with both, but we have agreed on lining before dyeing. Smile The top of the sleeve will be fully lined, but we won't continue the lining down to the tip. Instead we'll just make a pouch that can double as a hidden pocket inside the sleeve.

We are also 'done' with Padmé now (there's always upgrades), but I'm also moving, so I have no idea when this will be picked up again.
