Remember this dress I made for my friend to wear to an anime convention? Well, it's actually a group of my friends who went, and Pauline also needed some costume help.
She was dressing up as this character from Homestuck (it's a webcomic, I think):
Yeeeaaaaahhh. Lots of creative license taken with this one.
Pauline also found some fan art, which helped a lot:
We decided to make a circle skirt with a wide waist band and elastic out of this really really soft jersey fabric. It was so soft...and drapey...and soft...
I self patterned the skirt to fit Pauline exactly. Circle skirts are definitely my favorite: cute, easy to pattern, easy to fit and work at just about every length and in every fabric.
Seams were sewn with a zig-zag stitch so it could still stretch and be comfortable. The hem was done with a straight stitch to leave the outside nice and polished.
And I love her costume! She did such a good job of interpreting the character from the comic.
So awesome! Can't wait to see what she does for next year's Fanime! You go Pauline!
