Description
I love this uniform! And the anime is brilliant! Blood x CLAMP! How can that not be awesome?! :D I made Saya's Blood+ sword as the Blood-C one looked a little too hard for me at the moment.

I'm really proud of how this outfit turned out, especially the black shirt. It was my first time sewing darts. Plus I adore the red bias binding along the shoulders/sleeves <3

Journal

Black underskirt progress (Posted 10th March 2012)

I've sewn the main body of the black underskirt, using my red pleated skirt as a makeshift pattern. Just gotta add the ruffle layer at the hem! :)

Nearly done..! (Posted 14th January 2012)

I've now sewn most of the shirt. Just gotta hand-sew the evil zip and then the bias binding :) This is also my first time sewing sleeves. I think they came out good! ^^ I've really enjoyed making this outfit. I feel like I've learned a lot about sizing clothes properly :D

Fighting with my darts (Posted 4th January 2012)

Annoyingly the pattern for the shirt is too long when I add the waist Saya has. So I'm trying to shorten the pattern (and also the darts along it). I haven't sewed darts before now but I think the re-sized pattern fits ok. ^^" Just glad I'm using practice fabric! :)

Pleated skirt (Posted 13th December 2011)

I've decided to write journal entries for this cosplay ^^ I practiced the pleats first before using my nice red fabric. I've now finished the front of the skirt :)
