Deity Dividers

Created another set of dividers/banners, this time based on the flight deities. Each deity has two banners (blank and with flight name in English) plus a matching divider, all 640 pixels in width. Usual reminder that sizes can be easily modified when linking from Tumblr by modifying the end-of-URL number (options of 250, 400, 500, 540, and 1280; if the actual width is less than the number used, the graphic will appear at actual size).

Links to photosets for sets, alphabetical by flights:

  1. Arcane, Earth, and Fire
  2. Ice, Light, and Nature
  3. Lightning, Plague, and Shadow
  4. Water and Wind

Matching colour codes are also supplied for each banner, sampled in two spots.

Anyone wanting to do things like add flight names in a different language or font or whatever is welcome to modify and re-post the banners, my only request is that your post link back to this post so users can locate the full sets.

Someone on Instagram asked me about french seams, so I’ve made this little tutorial for you guys! French seams are a wonderful finish for sheer fabrics like chiffon and organza, or on areas of a costume that will be visible. I’ve used French seams on capes, tulle skirts, and organza sleeve insets. They are super easy, but do take twice the amount of time as a normal seam. First, pin your seam allowances wrong sides together. This will seem counterintuitive, but trust me! Next, stitch at half the width (or less/more depending on how wide you want the finished seam to be) of your finished seam allowance. Here I am stitching at ¼" because my finished seam allowance is ½". Trim the excess down to 1/8". You can grade the seams if you are working with thicker fabrics. Turn the fabric right sides together and press with an iron. Stitch again with the remaining width of your ideal seam allowance (for me this is ¼" again because my finished SA should be ½". ¼ + ¼ = ½). Press to one side. Tada! Your seam allowance excess is nicely encased within itself and there will be no raveling or ugly seam allowances!
