|Wanted to do this one for a while now and I've been told I'd suit her really well (in terms of personality) so I figured, why not? :P|
Also it's a good excuse to get people to buy me cake :3
This will be going with Miiol's Panty, sinxsational's Brief and Umbrav's Garterbelt! <3

I did some more of the dress tonight :D think it's come out pretty well!
Added the pleated chestpiece, the rounded collar, several buttons and the cuffs~
I'm attempting an early(ish) night for me tonight so I'll finish it off tomorrow, the bow for the back of the dress is all assembled, just need to add it to the back somehow, need to make a little bow for the collar, need to insert the zip and then I can finally sew on the lace and it'll be DONE :D
But for now, nighty night~
CHOCOLAT (Posted 17th March 2011)
Close up of the collar~
I had to lower the brightness a lot in Photoshop to show the detailing, made nice folded bits and added buttons and things to make it a bit less plain :3
Just need to make the little blue necktie for it now!
SUGAR (Posted 16th March 2011)
Bit more of the dress done, added the sleeves, now I just need to tackle the collar and cuffs~
Looking forward to adding the lace but I can't do that until the very end, wanna get the zip in first!
Anyways, there you go~
CREAM (Posted 16th March 2011)
So I decided to stop putting them off and made a start on the sleeves tonight >.> I hate doing these kinds of sleeves, the ones that hug the arm up to the shoulder and then puff up, they're annoying to try to put together!
But anyways, I got them done, they can be sewn onto the dress soon and the white cuffs are all cut out and stuff, ready to attach tomo-... today >.>
Oh wells, aside from that I've sewn some black bias around the neckline of the dress so I can attach the collar easier, I've also added some white bias along the edge of the lace for the 2nd row on the dress, will hopefully do that bit soons
But now, BEDTIME :D
SWEETS (Posted 13th March 2011)
Ok so I haven't actually done any more of the dress yet >.>
I got somewhat sidetracked and decided I wanted to make a Honekoneko plushie to bring along, but I've never made a proper plushie before so it's been taking up some time... I'm hoping to turn it into a backpack actually, then I can keep wallet and stuff in it :D
The wig arrived much earlier than expected though, it was quite a bit darker than I was expecting but it is nice and thick so that makes up for it. It tangles VERY easily though, might have to braid it until Kita weekend to keep it intact >.<
COOKIE (Posted 7th March 2011)
So I started working on the dress for a good few hours last night, most of the base is done now~ Need to make the sleeves, insert the zip, finish the collar and add all the lace ^^
Started working on the collar last night, I noticed in the refs that she has line bits on the white so I've been sewing folds into the fabric to try and make it less plain, hopefully it'll look nice!
I need to make or buy some sort of thick petticoat (I have 2 on the mannequin atm) to be able to puff out the bottom bell of the dress properly, not looking forward to that, petticoats are not my strong point >.>
The only other thing I'm having a bit of a problem with is that in different refs Stocking has a blue belt and the blue bow at the back, and in others she just has the blue bow :/ not sure which to do! Thoughts?
Anyways yes, progress~

Bought all my fabric yesterday, I'm low on cash so I didn't go for anything too extravagant. Going for plain white poly cotton for the white of the collar and cuffs, royal blue poly cotton for the bows and black cotton wyncette for the dress~ Never seen it in black before so I got some while I could as it's light and soft but still warm, it also has a great drop as well :D
The tights came today as well so I did a little test shot with my shoes (apologies for fuzzy mirror shot). I bought the shoes for something else but I think they go well with Stocking anyways, I just need to fix the elastic on the right shoe because for some reason it's gone really loose D:
Will hopefully start cutting stuff out tonight if all goes well~
PUDDING (Posted 2nd March 2011)
Woo~ Wanted to do this for a while now, I don't really care that there are gonna be loads of P&S cosplays at Kita :P I'm gonna have Miiol as my Panty and possibly Umbrav as my Garterbelt so that's looking to be an epic mini group!
I ordered my wig at the weekend (I think it was dispatched on monday) so hopefully it'll be here before the end of the month, I just hope it looks as nice as the photo when it arrives >.<
I also just ordered my black and blue striped tights so they should be here in a couple of days :D
I do want to do her pink date outfit from ep 9 at some point but for now I'll stick to the plain black and white dress, thankfully that shouldn't be too expensive for me atm~
