Description
I needed something for the Amecon ball next year, and preferably something in which I wouldn't die of heat exhaustion if they use the same room as last time. In looking back through some doujinshi I found some pictures of young Amy Dylandy in a summer dress, and since j_merc and I joked at Kita that I could always pretend to be an older Amy I figured I could make a compromise - an older Amy in a somewhat summer dress which was also slightly more suitable for a ball and this was what resulted.

The pattern pieces were the exact same ones used for steampunk!Selphie just with a slightly different finish very different fabric and the celtic cross and silver chain were left over from fantasy, gender switch Neil.

(For pure amusement value I made all of this while waiting for fabric to arrive to finish making Selphie.)
