6th December 2020: I made this top in 3hrs just for a dance video so it's "accurate-enough" for the video but there are small details I didn't want to finish because actually, I didn't have the right coloured thread to do any top-stitching!! So I'll finish that off whenever (if I ever) decide to take shoot photos!
Everything is scrap fabrics as I spontaneously decided to make this. The top is the dull side of some satin I had and the collar is the dull side of duchess satin with interfacing sandwiched in. I used Simplicity 8160 as a base pattern for the entire thing and because it was fairly loose I didn't install any fastening.
The skirt I already owned, from American Apparel, the tie is a standard Japanese school tie.
10th November 2020: I'm not particularly in the mood to do any sewing today so I did some wig styling haha.
It's originally an Alex in Matt Dark Brown from Coscraft. It's a very thick wig which was perfect in me trying to get her massively thick plait without extra wefts! This wig is quite old and has been through a lot I'm glad I managed to tame it to a decent quality again! I pin the tufts when it's on my head and also cut the fringe when I'm wearing it so... The fringe is more or less unstyled right now haha.
