This started out being based on one of Miwako's outfits in the anime but ended up just being loosely based on it. First I couldn't find a good matching stretch plaid fabric for the socks so I went with this polka-dot fabric instead since I thought it matched and worked well for Miwako's style. Then due to not having enough time, I didn't get the chance to make the proper undershirt or the blue skirt accurate. So I just wore the top that I modified for my Halloween costume and it worked out pretty well.
If I were to wear this again I definitely want to remake both of the skirts so they actually cover the petticoat properly but I don't think I'll have a convention to wear it to again. But I love the wig and the shoes are way comfortable so I'd like to cosplay another version of Miwako someday if I get the chance!
