Yuuko Ichihara (Crimson Butterfly DVD Cover) - xxxholic





This is actually one of my favorite outfits to wear, since it's very simple and elegant and yet still has a lot of detail in it. The dress itself is made of red casa satin and has French seams all around. All the butterflies, including the one on the bust, are all hand painted. Then the detailing around the skirt... that took a total of about… FOREVER! To draft a pattern, trace pieces onto heat 'n' bond, iron onto the black casa, cut out the black casa, then put into the same pattern, and iron onto the dress. The shoes are just like the rest, pieces of heat 'n' bonded material hand painted and glued onto a base pair of heals and then attached with a band of beads around the ankle. The butterflies on the headpiece are pieces of foamy with red casa glued onto each side, painted, and then glued onto hair clips and draped with lots of beads.
