1st September 2012: Stripe fabric issues The underskirt was quite tricky- mainly because finding striped pink and black fabric was uncommon. So I had to create my own. I used 3m of thick poly plain cotton and evenly cut out a trapezium shape for the skirt.
I used 3 rolls of masking tape and attempted to carefully put each section down for the stripe ( very time consuming). When it was finished , I then took the fabric outside and pinned on the washing line to commence with the spray painting.
Unfortunately it ran out in middle section- so I had to make a mad dash to the store and bought 4 bottles of Black fabric paint. This resulted in painting each striped section by hand . I pinned the fabric back on to the washing to allow it dry for couple hours. Afterwards I took of the masking tape and proceed to heat set the fabric with the iron. There were a few mistakes where the fabric lapsed slightly between the masking tape,however it wasn't a bad attempt.

31st August 2012: Kitty Tail =(^-.-^)= Bought 1m of light pink felt from ebay and fold the material in half, and drew the shape straight on. It was cut out , sewn and stuffed with wadding from an old pillow

30th August 2012: Dress top This part I found slightly more difficult, as the front section had a keyhole opening on the bodice. I bought 3m of Thick drill cotton and used ordinary poly cotton for lining. I used a evening dress pattern to form the basis of the bodice. To make the straps, instead of allowing it to go straight across the shoulders, I crossed them over the front to create a halter neck. I then hand sewn the two sections together so that the they can blend seamlessly with the fabric.

For the bottom half of the dress top, again I had to create my own pattern as the skirt was rounded and placed in two halves. I estimated my waist by half and additional 6" for the overlapping and gathering .

24th August 2012: Mr. Sleeves :D I noticed that sleeve are very long for this outfit and I didn't have a pattern to base them on. I got a sleeve from my previous Yuko cosplay (as they are detachable) and fold the pink cotton fabric in half and drafted the shape.
I then used a lighter pink cotton for the lining and accent the darker pink to give the sleeves more weight.
