i tried to use a kimono pattern i bought at my local walmart (paterns are $4 ^_^) but it sucked so i just made my own pattern, then i used bias tape to bind the seams cus the fabric i used was ravelly,
i coudnt find and black and white checked fabric at first and i was just goingt o paint a few yards of muslin but one day i got lucky and found some really nice black and white checked fabric (it even had BIG square) and conned my dad into buying it for me.
the red parts on the bottom where simple to do i just cut out the lumpy coud shape and then invisible stitched it in place.....at first i tried to hand embroider the flowers but they sucked......and for me nothigns better than mexican emboidery floss and since i live in the central coat (cali) it would be to much of a bother to go to mexico to buy it..... so i realized it sucked and ripped the whole red pane out then i tried to paint it on a new read peice but that sucked to since i cant paint shit to save my life that was an epic fail
next i tried to print off the internet and iron on....another epic fail
in the end i just resorted to taking apart a pink loli dress i was working on and harvested the skirt for the flowers but the ended up being the wrong shade of pink (too light for the white leaves to stand out) so i then took aprt the skirt i had made for ichigo (the skirt was doine wrong so it was recycled ^_^) and just curt out cherry blossom type shapes and ironed those on with wonder under or watever its called.......
the obi im still workinf on....
since i cant tie and obi and neither can any of my friend im making a waist sash thats sewn on in the back and that wraps arounf and hooks in the back and the part that trails down will be sewn onto the sash and will be hiding the hooks.....im not sure if it will work though......
the under layer i made exactly the same as outer layer, it just needs some ties put in so that it wil close when i put it on and maybe a smal belt thing to just tie it in the front....
all that really left to do is buy some sandals, or geta depends on if the geta are comfy or not cus if not ill just get black sandals
