Zero no Tsukaima
Last Updated: 05-18-2010
Mer wanted to do the Charming Fairy Maid Cafe for Anime South 2009 and since I'm short and they needed a Tabitha I just kind of ended up doing her. XD Though I probably would have picked Tabitha anyway, she's pretty much Rei Ayanami with glasses and Rei = <3.
The bodice corset thing was modified from a corset pattern I made a while back, the mock lacing up the front was done with narrow black ribbon and tiny little eyelets. There are real laces up the back with nicer quality eyelets for stability. The entire bodice is boned with plastic boning.
The petticoat was bought to match the other girls and the circle skirt is quite literally a giant circle. So much fabric! The ruffles were all pre-ruffled trim that was purchased, also to match the other girls. The blue is all light blue sateen cotton and the black is all casa satin.
I really love this outfit and I hate to retire it so soon but I don't see myself ever wearing it again since I only really made it for the maid cafe, haha! I really enjoy being Tabitha, but there are a host of other maid costumes I want to make and I don't need more than 2-3 at a time. Or six... Or ten...
