4th April 2012: skirt I made the base of the skirt a while ago, trying different things...
Its a really strange design because it looks ruffled but its too tight fitting to her to be....if that makes sense?
The best way I could thing of doing it would be making it out a crinkle looking fabric.
So I made the base out of a lilac thai silk and i am going to layer it with this fabulous material....just look at how god damn sparkly and glittery it is *_*
4th April 2012: Luka sleeves These puzzled me far more than they should have @_@
In the end I sewed and lined each layer individually, then they are held in place by the side seem and a little bit of well placed fabric glue. Just because in the references the layer all seem to move seperatly so i didnt want to sew them together at the bottom and I didnt have enough of the purple fabric to sew them o=together at the top...also it would have made the sleeve quite tight up there.
Red and purple are thai silk and black is a duchess satin
22nd March 2012: Miku bow I got a nice fuchsia gingham fabric for the bow because in the references they are checkered. I hand dyed it using pink fabric dye just to tinge the white checkers so they weren't so "in your face"
Just waiting on it to dry.
11th March 2012: Miku sleeve start Did the bit at the end of the sleeve
Blue is Thai silk, gold is duchess satin, lined with black polyester just so they keep their shape
Cutting out those triangles was so much fun :/
Need to go do 1 million more for the other sleev and trim. XD
