|Finished this cosplay completely by accident... I was hunting through my odds and ends earlier and found my old apron from when I waitressed and VOILA.|
EDIT: Putting it back into progress just because I might make a new apron from scratch and I realised the waistcoat is more of a grey than black.
EDIT 04/02: This costume will be for the Sat evening of Kitacon along with NeverForever and BakaBakaRangers as Konoe and Aoba.
Done! (Posted 5th February 2014)
Made the waistcoat today which was surprisingly easy! Tried a new hemming technique too to avoid fraying which gave a nice effect I think. Really liking the grey fabric too! (Photo here is seen without the buttons as I hadn't sewn them on yet at this point). All ready for the shoot now though!
More progress (Posted 4th February 2014)
Okay, so I wasn't actually going to do anymore but I did end up cutting out and pinning the waistcoat to the mannequin so all ready to sew up. Decided to have the grey material as inside lining too as I had enough of it.
Progress (Posted 4th February 2014)
Made the apron today - fairly easy especially as I already had one from my work place so just made one like it but longer. The stitching looks messy though due to my machine deciding the tension is screwed but will have to do for now! Just the waistcoat to make so should finish this costume this week.
