Cosplay: Kiki (Commission)

First off, wow!
Thank you for 10,000 view for my blog.
I'll try to update more information about cosplay
and now that I've started FIDM,
I'll also try to post everything I can about the classes and experience as a FIDM student

And quick update since the last post.
I've finished working on the Free! Sailor top. (Tutorial coming soon)
I've visited Fashion District in LA past weekend and got more fabric and trims.

I was asked by one of my close sister for a Kiki's dress from Kiki's Delivery Service.

Fortunately I was able to find that perfect dark purple fabric for Kiki's dress!

I bought mine at 
Sylvia's Fabric
841 S. Wall St.
Los Angeles, CA 90014
www.sylviasfabrics.webs.com
Tel/Fax: 213-627-6315

The cost of the fabric was $4.00 per yard.
Quality of the fabric is really good.

Total time it took me to make the dress was 12 hours.
Bought 4yds of fabric = $12

Make patterns (Top, sleeves, Dress)

Pin the fabric down, trace, and cut

Hem all the edges to prevent fraying. (When I hem I do a trifold)

Attach sleeves and Dress (Full circle skirt)

View: Top + Sleeves all hemmed (Neckline & Sleeve Edges)

View: Top + Circle Skirt

By request: I'll be placing elastic around the waist for a better fit.
