It begins! (Posted 9th February 2011)

So I got a sewing machine for Christmas and have a Kobato Artbook since Nemacon '10! This is going to be my first attempt at least somewhat self made; since all the other costumes I've worn thus far have been either purchased or made by friends/family members. I am sure my Mam will have some input in assisting me in some areas as I learn to do this, but I want it to be mostly me.

I do have a fair few things together, the wig I've bought (it's in the post) I have the patterns I'm using, I have the blouse and hat I'll be using. I still need to buy fabric, shoes and ribbons though! So... I'll just have to take this one step at a time!
