Costume Information

Description
I would like to have this done for October mcm.

I'm thinking of doing the version with the shorter sleeves, as I know what I'm like with long sleeves; I'll probably just end up rolling the sleeves up throughout the day.

I’m also going to have to spend some time out in the sun during the summer, so that the green doesn’t reflect against my pale skin colour in a bad way.

finished wig (Posted 29th October 2013)

Italy's hair curl has now been added and I've added a bit of hair spray to keep the bangs in palce :)

wig progress (Posted 24th October 2013)

With the wig now styled all I've got to do is add in the curl, things are about to get very fiddly

Hair curl (Posted 20th October 2013)

So today I decided to work on Italy's hair curl, I followed a tutorial on youtube and can I just say that the glue I was using was very very sticky.

Now I've just to wait for the glue to dry which can take 24-36 hours, so hopefully within the next couple of days I can neaten up the curl, cause where the actual curl is it is very messy.

wig has arrived (Posted 3rd October 2013)

The wig has arrived, perfect colour, needs styling and cutting.
Need to say this but I like the look of being a natural red head, it just seems right

wig ordered (Posted 25th September 2013)

I have know ordered my wig for chibitalia, it doesn't have the hair curl cause I want to have a go at it myself.
Once I have the wig I can finish the head scarf.

update (Posted 14th September 2013)

Been meaning to do this but now having moved to university and settling in and getting through fresher's week, I've now been able to do this.

The blouse is now all done, I was able to get it done before I moved and the only thing that needs to be done is to hunt down a wig, and to add the hair curl and then also the head scarf.
The shoulder straps on the apron have now been taken in as they kept sliding off my sholders.

shirt progress (Posted 21st August 2013)

Work I have done so far on the shirt/blouse.

finished skirt (Posted 19th August 2013)

So I have now completed the skirt with a white undershirt also. I had originally planned to have an elastic waistband, but I changed my mind to have an ordinary waistband and have a hook and eye at the side so that it sits right.

I have gotten a start on the shirt which is the last part that will require sewing, and I'm hoping to get that done before I leave for university which is about 3 weeks.

skirt progress (Posted 15th August 2013)

Skirt pieces have been cut with an additional 2 inches along the hem. Now to remove all the pins and quickly hand sew before machining.

pinning tonight (Posted 15th August 2013)

So tonight I decided to pin the pattern for the skirt to the fabric, which involved moving a fair amount of stuff in order to gain floor space. I'm going to double check it tomorrow with natural lighting to make sure that I'm happy with it before I cut.
I also need to add an extra 2 inch along the hem to make up for the elastic that is going to be added to make the waistband, reason for this is that this is the exact same pattern pieces that I used for misa.
