29th March 2013: Collar Collar progress! Had a bit of a battle and almost gave up with this cosplay entirely with this little thing... But, I stuck to my guns and kept with it haha~ Just pinned so far but you get the placement idea.
I'm kinda sad the pleats sort of die out at the edges, but without them doing so the shape would be nigh-on impossible right now.
It started off as about 2.3 meters of material which was box pleated and carefully ironed as best as humanly possible without creating more disasters ^_^;
18th February 2013: Jacket progress With attached "tails" onto the back, still having to attach the sleeves though!
2nd February 2013: Dress 80% complete So this hasn't really been too much of a headache for me, the pattern was quite simple in comparison to the actual jacket and the sleeves. ¬_¬
I have all the basic things done, I just need to fix the bust hemline and the zippers, not to mention the mid-section cut out.
12th January 2013: Jacket progress From the other night. =3=
There's a horrible waterfall pattern that has decided to rear it's ugly head at the base underneath the triangular hip segment.
At the moment I'm trying to rectify it as best I can, even though it might still look alright if I left it, I just can't get over the accuracy of her outfit. If I'm going to stay true to all of the seams then I should in theory continue that in the shape of her jacket
12th January 2013: Front pattern design work The front pattern! This one is STILL causing me hassle even though I'm taking a break to post these up. The triangle at the top of the pattern was a rough indication as to where I wanted the one on the bottom to go!
I drew out the back pattern first before doing a rough shape of what I needed as the front.
12th January 2013: Tails and mock patterns Okay I know a lot of these really wont make sense now, but these are the mock patterns I've been working out before moving over onto the actual pleather.
These are the two sort of 'tails' as I've dubbed them that go down from the back of her jacket.
6th January 2013: Gathering materials Today I managed to find near enough a lot of the materials that I needed for her jacket and dress, although I didn't get as much pleather as I had wanted, it's still a start to what is going to a rather hard project to undertake.
