Commision: Aernath's Supia Doll Sherlock Lounge Set

Post bumped up, project now on the work table, late. >.<;;

The Sherlock lounge set, one silk robe, cotton t-shirt and cotton striped pj bottoms.  To be completed with in the next 4-6 weeks.  (<-- not...) 

Note: after this set, I am out of both fabrics MonkeyGraph was kind enough to sell me the remainder of.

Slotted this in with all my other patterning projects for October so I can be ready to bust it out in November.  ^_^

Finally, it's on the work table.

November 22, 2013

I expect to be done tomorrow, Saturday, but not early enough for the post.  It's been another one of those weeks.  I need to double check everything for length before hemming and finishing.  If I tried to make the mail tomorrow, I wouldn't have time to wash everything and press and photo before packing.  Everything will go out Monday morning with tracking because it's that time of year.  I think the people at the post office are already losing their minds.  They all had those OMG frozen on smiles last two times I went in, and even tried to sell me a passport, LOL!

November 24, 2013  Finished!

I'll be mailing out the package tomorrow (with tracking this time of year. O_o)   This is only the second time I've used the t-shirt pattern and it's really facile, I'm glad to be able to use it.  I popped it over the head of my fat headed Barry, wig and all and it went like a charm.  And the opening looks very unobtrusive to me.  I can't stand t-shirts that open up all the way down the back.  It goes on just like a real one with the head opening thing being the only difference from 'people' t-shirts.  The front pockets on the pj bottoms work.

The fabric for the robe was a squeeze, so I had to piece the belt (the stripes have to run horizontal like the original) but it shouldn't be too noticeable.  Because the Supia boys have large hand spreads, I wrapped the pocket over the side seam to keep the position in proportion. 

And that's that.  Once again, I'm looking forward to seeing Aernath's doll photos, and I hope she is pleased with the work.  ^_^
