Costume Information

Description
Fell in love with this game. Fukami is my favourite but Dolphi is a pretty close second - she's so adorable. Accidentally found I had fabric for her dress already so can start making it now (though likely won't be finished for a while as won't be able to order the wig yet.
I'm gonna go for slightly larger than average dark lenses for this - even though her eyes are massive, I think schlera would look terrifying for her and not give the right look.

Dress complete! (Posted 31st July 2014)

Finally got around to doing the last bits on the dress today - I ended up being busy or just not in the mood before now. Bias has been sewn onto the bottom hem, false pockets added and buttons sewn on - it still looks a bit wrinkly in the photo but I have yet to iron it. Next up is the detachable wrist cuffs!

Dress almost complete (Posted 24th July 2014)

Sewed on the bias on the collar today and then sewed on the collar too! It's not as neat as I'd like it to be but works a lot better than the last time I tried a sailor collar so I'm happy with it. Just need to add on the bias on the skirt hem now and sew on the buttons and then the dress is done!

Collar progress (Posted 22nd July 2014)

Made the sailor collar today - haven't sewn it on yet so it's just pinned in place in the photo here. Got the last of the supplies too as I needed a hook and eye for the back and the buttons and bias for decoration - should be able to pretty much finish this soon. Pleased by how quickly the collar came together as I was anticipating it being a pain!

Base dress done! (Posted 20th July 2014)

Finished the fitting on the dress today - I'm pretty happy with it! Just need to add a hook and eye to the back. Probably start the collar tomorrow.

Almost done with the dress! (Posted 19th July 2014)

Hemmed the arm holes and bottom of the dress today. It still needs a bit more fitting doing to it, mostly on the bust line and at the back but almost done. Happy with the current length of it - I didn't want it to make it ridiculously short but I think it gives the right effect for Dolphi. Collar after that!

Progress (Posted 15th July 2014)

Fitted the zip into the back today (just need to add a hook and eye to the top!). Also sorted the neckline so that's accurate and hemmed now. Still need to hem the arm holes and take up the dress to above the knees before I can finish the fitting - you can see in the photo how the fitting still isn't quite there yet but will be sorting that once i've done the other little bits. Gave up for today as arm holes always require a lot of patience from me and I don't want to mess it up! It's coming along though - aiming to get the dress pretty much done by the end of the week (though the sailor collar may take a bit longer).

Dress progress (Posted 11th July 2014)

Sewed together most of the panels for the dress today - it still needs a zip fitted into the back, hemming and fitted more accurately but it's getting the general shape at least! The colour has shown up especially bright for some reason here - it's a darker shade of blue in real life.

The start (Posted 11th July 2014)

After finishing the game I had a lot of motivation to start this so drafted out a pattern yesterday for the dress and cut out the fabric for it today (bar the sailor collar which I'll do once the dress is mostly in one piece). Too tired to start sewing today but will probably start that over the weekend.
