|I love Okita so much. I am determined to try and get this done in time for Aya. The western version turned out quite well. I just hope the same will go for this. I don't want to mess up the shinsengumi Haori ( I think thats right)so i am looking for a pattern for it first.|

I maneged to pull it back from the brink. I maneged to pin it so it was correct, now I have to cut off the excess and paint on it before I sew it up.
I love the colour of this material. I still have to dig out the sleeve pattern, if i can find it.
I did have a go a cutting a cheap with this morning to look like Okita's, but I looks awfull. I kept laughing at how hideous it turned out. My sister maneged to make it look more like it, but I think I am gonna just buy one. The cheap wig really didn't have enough layers to it.

I ended up using the wrong pattern by mistake. I have a very limited ammount of this material, and it was quite costly to get. I'm not even sure if the store had anymore left. So I have tried to alter the pattern using my shinigami robes as a guide to how it should look. I think it's about right now, but I wont know properly until I sew it up and add the sleves and collar. but just in case, i'm gonna go check for more material when i go back to the material store and start again if I have to. on the plus side, if it does turn out to be unusable, I can use it to pratice painting the chain link pattern on it. It also might look alright under the Shinsengumi Haori as it should cover any errors.
I've just got to learn to slow down a bit. If I had I would have noticed it was the wrong pattern.
