This started as a reason to make wings. Which were the first part to get started, and have yet to be finished.

The top was modified slightly from the pattern to allow for straps.

The skirt provided a bit of anxiety due to the fact that it really should've been mentioned somewhere that the underlayer and the mesh should really be the same colour, or you need to add another four layers of mesh.

For a real detailed analysis of each part and what went into it (and what went wrong), take a look at this entry on the LJ (opens in new window)
