Iron Man Bustle Dress timecard

So, people asked me a lot while I was at DragonCon how long it took me to make the dress. And I actually had an answer ready: 117 hours.

When I was working on the butterfly dress, my co-worker Laurel asked me the same question, but I didn't have an answer. "Uhhh, I dunno. A while." is I think what I said. So she said that I should log it sometime just to see. So I did. This was my log, in case you are interested.
