Evangelion School Uniform Patterns?
Me and my friend are planning on doing Asuka and Rei from Evangelion. I'm planning on doing Rei, in her school uniform.

But, I don't know what on earth kind pattern to use! There aren't any kind of ordinary pinafore patterns I felt I could use, so I opted for a high-waisted skirt, which I also need help finding. XD But then how do you recommend I do the top-half?

Help would be greatly appreciated. >.<

*asks obvious and stupid question* Have tried any of the pattern catalogues? I know McCalls have a good range of costume patterns that you could mix with say a high waisted skirt. Failing that try and use a normal sun dress pattern, cut out according to it then modify it to fit Rei's design.

I'm doing that for a couple of cosplays myself- usually does me the job! ^^

i looked through the catalogues, yeah. XD maybe i'll have a closer look and see if there are any I can use in the costume section. If not, the sundress idea seems like a great idea! thank you ^^

I was just looking on burdastyle for a high rise skirt, and i ended up finding a pattern very similar to the dress. The skirt isn't pleated, though :S

Also, this pattern is for a fairly high rise skirt (and it's free) if you still wanted to go for that option. To make it higher, you can just make the waist thicker or change the measurements to fit the right part of your waist instead, and make the skirt longer

I made mine from scratch simply made a rectangle with slightly sloped sides (skinnier at top and wider at the bottom) the I added the pleats to make it fit me So if you just get a simple skirt pattern and then add the pleats manually it'll give a better fit then cutting in pleats to a pattern and it not being quite right Then cover up any messiness with the waist band which is nice and simple to sew on Then the dress bit is straight on the inside but curved on the outside. I can send you a microsoft paint drawing if you like? But I hope that helps
