Bellatrix Lestrange Costume...part 3...the lace-up sleeves

I finally hit a snag in this costume. The dress was easy to make. The corset was easy to make. For whatever reason, the sleeves were not easy to make. After 3 or 4 tries I finally got the proper amount of spacing in the laces. Luckily I bought an extra pack of eyelets, so I still have enough to add onto the shoulder and sleeve top areas.

1.5 weeks to finish this up!

Do you have any measurements that I can use? I would love to make the costume myself.

Do you still have the measurements? I love how you did it! I want to make the costume of Bellatrix .

Hi Michelle! I'm glad you like my costume! Sadly, no I don't have any of the original measurements still, mostly I just sort of measured my arm and took it from there. But I'll take a look at the costume and see if I can get any measurements off it it for you.
