Buttons I bought from Savers today have been spray painted gold. They will be attached to the tabs and will be purely decorative. The tabs will have velcro on the back and the corresponding pieces will be attached to the cape once it is on the person and positioned then glued into place.
Today I went shopping. This coat on the top is my coat. I love it and i have had it for about 6 or 7 years. It is a Peace Angel coat my hubby bought me for my birthday in Sydney one year. This is a coat i bought from Savers in Mill Park today, The same coat in a different colourway. I am so estatic! This means that when my first coat is thread bear i will still have my favourite style. This lovely lot i also bought in Savers Mill Park today, they will be invaluable for my costume making endeavors. This is my new pride and joy. A brand new dressmakers dummy bought from Spotlight in my size. After having second hand models I am really happy to have one in my size. Spotlight has a sale right now until Sunday, $100 off any dressmakers model. My husband has been a real trouper today.
