27th March 2014: IT IS DONE By some miracle and a little help from mum , this is actually ready in time for Kita!
The pattern took a couple of days as cutting, pinning and stitching each individual shape (diamonds and flowers) was a very time-consuming process!
The snood was made today. I had to run a couple of last minute errands today so mum very kindly stitched a large section of the snood c:
24th March 2014: Panic stations Time is not on my side right now haha!
Today I managed to paint my watch and make the whole base dress for this AND pin the bias binding edges before work today! Let's hope I continue with this speed c:
22nd March 2014: Sleeves! So the stripey sleeves are done! I've used a black long sleeved top as a base (gonna boil), and attached the striped sections onto the arms.
The striped sections themselves were time-consuming. I made a base layer of the blue, and then folded a black strip over the end. I then measured, cut and stitched on the purple stripes before finally adding in the two yellow. I then turned this into a tube, matching up the stripes, and stitched it to the black top.
It's turned out 3D rather than smooth, but sewing each stripe section individually rather than building up would have taken even longer, and time is (quite appropriately) NOT on my side!
5th December 2013: Fabric Got fabric for the dress today! It was hard to judge what to get as it looks like a sweater dress in the sprite but thin and clingy in the official art. It's also two completely different shades of purple!
In the end I went for a smoky mid-purple double knit jersey. So I'm going more with the offical art in terms of fit but the in-game art and sprite for colour.
