9th April 2009: So much great progress! I'm really happy with how this is going!
there are a few things i've decded to amend. it's hassle but i'll feel much better about the entire costume if i do them. and as i have time, i can take as long as i need.
so, i've decided to buy more of the fabric and take apart the bodice and double the fabric up because it is just way too thin.
i've also decided to give the skirt the same treatment.
the yellow underneath shows through far too much for me to be ahppy with it so i'll probably just buy more yellow too and end up redoing the entire skirt.
the collar needs to be lengthened as it's too short for how deep the neck line goes.
I was looking through fan translated manga of Shugo Chara today and found a decent picture of Amu's boots.
So i've decided to go all out and do them properly..... no, i have no idea how i'm going to do it. no doubt it will involve alot of chicken wire and papier mache for the bottom parts and also plenthy of fabric and double sided tape to stick the tops to my legs. XD
i'll probably start fiddling tonight when i get bored. ^_^
Next week i get paid so i'll be shooting off to Fabric Land to buy the fabric and also probably get the fabric i need for my Kusumi Koharu Cosplay as that also needs alot of time and careful sewing. ^_^V
