01 - skirt (Posted 19th March 2011)

So I bought tartan fabric the other day to make the skirt, thinking I needed 1.5 times my waist size to make pleats-- and upon checking this tutorial (http://thecosplaychronicles.blogspot.com/2010/02/how-to-cosplay-pleated-...), turns out I needed 2.5 times instead. derp.

Luckily Fuuka's skirt is quite short despite her fat thighs, so I had enough material for the pleats AND the waistband. And I ended up making the pleats from just looking at the reference picture since the above tutorial is actually for knife pleats (instead of box pleats gathered at the top...) ... DERP #2.

All in all it was less difficult than I expected, and just required repetitive actions in tacking and sewing instead. I think it turned out well! (WIP picture included.)
