|Miyaka's priestess outfit, much nicer than the bown school uniform. It's made from scarlet polyester satin, and cream organza, and edged with cream polycotton. |
There are three parts to the costume: robes, undershirt and sleeves, and skirt.
The robes are made from a standard dress pattern, and was fairly simple to put together. The edges down the from are polycotton, and there are some little flowers on the shoulder to hide a seam. The sleeves were cut in a semi-circle, to make the much wider at the top than the bottom. The whole think is held together with poppers, as I didn't want to rely on the ribbon. The ribbon itself never hung in quite the right place, and I should really have stiched it on.
The skirt is made of a waistband of polycotton, with the organza stiched into it. It's slit up the front and longer at the back. It is weighted with a curve of curtain flex to make it hang in the right place.
The under shirt is organza at the front and polycotton at the back, with a zip so I could make it fit to me tightly. The sleeves are probably about 1/2 a meter in circumfrance, and pretty much the same width all the way down.
Miyaka's shoes are made by sewing the leftover red satin over a pair of cheap white plimpsoles to make satin slippers that I could wear outside :)
