Sakura Kinomoto (Music dress) - CardCaptor sakura


I've always been fond of the dress that Sakura wears to capture The Song (Freyarule did an absolutely gorgeous cosplay of it (go check it out, she looks amazing). Sadly though I never thought it would suit me that much, as ponchos have never been very flattering on me.
Luckily for me there's a really pretty alternative version in the manga illustrations, completely with fancy borders and everything!

I made the dress out of a mysteriously named 'dress fabric', but I believe is some kind of cotton/crepe blend. I had to double it up for thickness, then lined it with a music-print cotton that I dyed pale pink. This lining is also in the hat and the collar because I LOVE IT. The lace is a lucky eBay find! I embroidered the music note by hand.
The hat is felt, and the collar/sleeves are matt duchess satin. The petticoat is from my Madoka cosplay! The gloves are scuba, and in desperate need of remaking haha
Staff head/end is from Chompworks, which I painted and put on the PVC pipe c:

I love the details in this cosplay, and for a quick 2 week project I threw together after MCM, I'm really happy with how it came out! Putting in all the music details made me so happy c:
