Sumomo -

In Progress


I found some really gorgeous pink ribbon in a shop in Dagenham and it inspired me to finally make this costume.

I've finished the bodice and I've made the trousers in a cheap cotton for now to get the right cut. I'm thinking of going the same way as Kimimaru and making it in really textured fabrics. Probably thin cotton trousers with some very thin floaty fabric over the top to make it a bit more interesting. Might re-make the bodice in Chinese silk if I think it will look appropriate. Whilst I want the design and cut to be accurate, its quite a fun costume so I'm opening my fabric choices up to interpretation ;)
