Description
Ive always loved this outfit since the day i had cast eyes upon it, its so gorgeous (im inlove with half the outfits in the FF series) and ive always wanted to cosplay a few of my fave FF characters.
I was originally gonna do Yuna, but wanted to do lenne instead cus i prefer her long locks to Yuna's flicked short hair do.

Hoping to do this for kita on the friday, but if not I'll just do it for May expo cus it'll be nice weather :)

Edit-
Managed to finish it for kita but hardly got to get any pics in it.meh.

I don't remember the terminology, but for the frills you can make them nice and even by getting the frill fabric and doing a very very loose hand stich along the side where it'll join the top. Then use the ends of this stitch and pull so the fabric frills up and you can get it to the right length - then pin it to your top and sew it on, removing the loose stich afterwards.
I hope that makes sense ^_^' And sorry if that's not what was giving you trouble, lol ^_^'

Leo- YES That's its :D thank you hun! My mum said the name the other day but i completely forgot ^^; so I just kept calling it "frilly frills" or "crunched up frills", mum and other people usually got what i meant when i said that and described it so i was happy for that XD.

Nomes - heh thanks for the heads up, I'm mainly wearing her friday and saturday night though (the party) ^^; but I'll see! :)

My dearest Lenne. I saw you once in the distance at Kita but alas I was already Ashelin by then. You looked smoking though.

top progress (Posted 21st February 2012)

Finished the skirt a while back (bout a month ago)and so far the top is pissing me off (ive never made a full outfit from scratch before, so i keep failing and coming to a halt -_-) The white ruffle bits have been a pain a lil cus of the fabric a i ended up getting, but it'll have to do till i can remake it some time in the future, and unfortunately for me i couldnt get any stretchy blue fabric close enough to the colour i needed, so i just went for the same fabric i bought for Fang's sari.
Just need to buy the material for the side skirt on the top now after this is all completed.

skirt (Posted 1st February 2012)

Finished making the skirt the other day but not completely 100% happy with it, then again its my first time making a pleated skirt so looking at it, it came out kinda good for a first timer :)

fabric (Posted 19th January 2012)

Bought some lovely nice blue fabric the other day to get things started, hoping to start it this week, but been so busy lately that all my cosplays are on hold, so with what little time i have ive just been searching for the right fabric at reasonable prices. I was hoping to find stretchy fabric but they never had it, so i went for this one instead, now i just need to figure out how to cut out the patterns since its my very first time making a top from scratch

wig ordered (Posted 15th January 2012)

wig ordered, now just need to start making the top with the material i bought yesterday.
