:D i usually am very uncommited to a cosplay until i buy the fabric, WHICH I JUST DIIIID :DDDDD though i forgot my coupons D: so the two patterns i bought cost me 20$ >.>
i was so happy when my mom found the striped fabric for the sash next where we are standing, she was all "lydia! isnt this perfect!" and i started spazzing xD the stripes are a bit thicker then i would prefer, but im fine with it cuz its pink tinted! kind of hard to see in the pic though.
i bought a blouse pattern for the top, all i have to do is make the sleeves a bit longer then highten the collar, and draft the front to make it double breasted.
the short pattern was perfect as is :) finding fabric for the main part of the outfit ( that navy teal) was a paaaain, all the colors were to blueee of a navy, while it had that teal tint D: until i finally found it! only problem was that its a light cotton, the one you can buy for like 3.99$, so im lining it to give it more form.
finding the fabric for the spats was also very fortunate. i was looking at the fabrics with my ref in hand comparinhg as i went, i was looking for the main fabric, when i happened upon this one color, and when i looked at my ref, it was nearly perfect for the spaaaats *__* so i took it :D
the striped fabric is originally 9.99$ a yd, but i started dancing when i went back to the rack to find that it was 60% off that day :DDD the ennnnd. time to start sewiiing.
oh yeah, the red for the butt frills and accents is casa crepe ( i lurv it). im kind of hating on the purple fabric ( also for butt frills) because i couldnt find another color like that, so i had to go with this lining fabric D: its kinda sheer and thin T>T
*update*: so far, i have the sash done, and my shorts are almost done. theyre lined and all that, all i have to do to them is hem the bottom, add the zipper, and do the red and gold detailing on the side :) right now im making the eyepatch (being made from my bros old headboard and some ribbon xD). after im gonna do the top, then buy the boots and make the spats, make the cuffs, make the tophat, and do the butt frills :3
