I love the wig! The fabric you used on the skirt looks perfect, too bad I can't see the actual skirt very well from the photo though DX

Journal

Puffed sleeve (Posted 24th October 2011)

Oh my god this was the worst part to do. I tried using a far more complicated method first and it looked horrible and messy. But then I found a far simpler tutorial for doing them and so I had to completely unpick the puffs and sleeves and re-sew them together but it came out far better. I do not enjoy making puffed sleeves though, will be avoiding that when i can in future!

Finished cuff (Posted 24th October 2011)

the actual shirt sleeves arent long enough so I made fake cuffs and customised them. used red satin ribbon and scalloped elastic trim (which is a nightmare to sew >: )

The top so far (Posted 1st September 2011)

I didn't manage to sort this all out in time for Ayacon so I'm not sure when I'll wear it now, probably Fushicon if I don't have anything else planned. My main worry was getting the mandarin collar right. I think what I'll do now is buy a mandarin collar shirt and mod the top with it that way. I haven't succeeded very well at making the puffs in the sleeves so far but the top need to be fitted to me more so I can tweak them then.

There isn't too much left to do on it now, just need that shirt, make the cuffs (get some more ribbon for them too) and add the white edging around the bottom of the top.
