Cosplay Suigintou from Rozen Maiden

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Finding my apex on the princess seams and fitting my cup size What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't start rushing to finish - this lead to slightly uneven front seams when I changed the neckline. Also, if you've changed your eating habits, measure before you use measurements from as little as two months ago. I was pleasantly surprised to have to take in the front waist and the back slightly.

What you will need

  • Fabric: polycotton (underskirt)
  • satin (jacket and overskirt) Pattern: Vogue 8601
  • McCalls 4090 (modified for overskirt)

Q&A with Norvi

brenda june asked:
Your outfit makes me happy. It's great to see how many different styles and looks can come out of this class. Your modification has helped me to pinpoint what I don't like about the class pattern. I think that I don't like jewel necklines. I did like the Peter Pan collar idea. Hmmm.
Norvi answered:
Thank you, I should also take a photo where I'm not wearing the wigs - there's no bunching at the waist then :)
Barbara Deckert asked:
What fun! Great job!
Norvi answered:
Thank you, I almost cried when I realised that I was going to have a waist because the space needed for the bust had been adjusted.
