Description
Duuurh, nice simple costume for general outing at Fuyu? Yes please!
I'm sticking this up in complete now because I highly doubt I will ever complete it, nor do I think I will ever wear it again because for me - this is so incredibly girly and it feels downright weird wearing it lol! (And the fact that I cannot be bothered to finish it lolol *shot*)

Cost:
1.5m Checkered polycotton - £4.50
Everything else was in my scraps pile!

The blouse I had bought from Matalan ages ago, I then modified it by unpicking the sleeves and sewing on puffy sleeves. I then added on the ruffles to the bottom. As a result, you can see the difference in black ORZ.

The black skirt is my Tomoyo skirt which I painted the details for.
For the checkered overskirt I cut the fabric in half to make one long strip and literally pleated it on so that I could get the volume it needed (and to match the style of the black underskirt as that was pleated also). This was then sewn onto the black skirt and I made a checkered waistband for it.

Boots are my own.
Hair is my own although I couldn't make the style right. I would have preferred to use a wig all the way and style it myself but I didn't see the need to if it's just for a casual costume that I was only going to wear once and my hair is the right length and style as Mitsuki's anyway!

Wahey, did more work. These ruffles and little details are driving me insane though. But at least I get to gun fabric through the machine rather than endlessly painting little squiggles on a 3m long skirt. So I'm not going to complain as much x'D

I need to do more ruffles on the front and then that's it. The collar isn't accurate - I may change it depending on how I'm feeling. But if that's the case I'm going to need a trip to Fine Fabrics for some black cotton because all I have is polycotton. I'd rather use a heavyweight fabric rather than have to interface it, because I'm lazy like that =P

Time Taken - 2hrs? Lost track! (Ouran was distracting me lolol)

P.S. It looks way better on me than it does on the floor X_x; But I cannot be bothered to get changed for it is freezing! Not to mention my hair is still wet from my shower and I do not want to put it up in pigtails =P

03/10/2009 - Skirt and blouse (Posted 3rd October 2009)

It's a start!

The black skirt was taken from my Tomoyo cosplay - it was a black pleated skirt from polycotton so it wasn't really proper pleats. The checkered skirt is also polycotton and made the same way as a pleated skirt. Again, due to its lightness it doesn't really give proper pleats - it worked for this costume though.

The white detailing on the black skirt were what took away most of my time away. I could have gone for the pretty/impressive method of embroidering it all. But no I went for the lazy/unimpressive method of painting it with acrylic paint, just because I had loads left over from GCSE Art! While it's not as impressive as embroidery it still looks good in my opinion, I did lose a bit of my sanity though.

The checkered skirt is actually sewn together with the black skirt.

I decided to make a start on the blouse too. I used some leftover polycotton to make the ruffles at the bottom of her blouse. It's a different shade of black to the actual blouse but it will do - I'm not going to nitpick about a casual costume. If it shows up in photos then photoshop will be done LOLL.
I'll modify the rest of the blouse when I can be bothered - but it's nice to have a before and after image!

Time Taken - 6hrs
Cost - Nothing!

Dear me I look scary in my progress photo lolol~
