I really want to start doing this cosplay and think that just don't know where to start. I don't know if I should just buy a white shirt and make a skirt both of stretch knit instead of making it all together from polyester. Which fabric would be betteR?

I wanted to start sewing, but I honestly don't know how to create those types sleeves or the ruffle-ish effect toward the hips. The pattern of this would be one of the hardest. I realise there is lace trimming as well. The hair accessories seem less hard, but still. Already have thigh highs and flats and my miku wig.

Please, help?

That definitely looks like a stretchy fabric to me; I think a cotton jersey knit (like a t-shirt) would be more comfortable than polyester. Do you have a sewing machine, and does it have a zigzag stitch?

I think the skirt pattern is just a gathered rectangle... it doesn't look like a circle skirt or anything, there's definitely some fullness at the waist and not just at the hem. For the ruffle at the waist, I think you'd be fine just sewing on a double sided ruffle. Sew a tube, turn it so the seam is on the inside, iron it flat so it's like a strip of fabric with no raw edges, run a line of straight stitches down the middle, scrunch up along stitches, attach.

By "those type sleeve" do you just mean inset sleeves, or do you mean like with a puff at the top, or do you mean with the lace? Inconsistent art is inconsistent ^^

My only singer sewing machine stopped working. :[ Sadly. I was thinking something like that. XD

Thank you, this was very helpful. So, just a basting stitch right? The distance shouldn't be too far off.. Ah-ha.

The inset sleeves. The measuring of it seemed really odd to me, which is why I got slightly confused. I can sew the lace on fine.
