Idolized Floral

Love Live

BIRB

My friend Felociraptor (Err, I mean, Cosplayer Fel...) really loved the idolized floral Love Live designs, so she asked if I would do it with her when she came to Sakuracon and um Love Live and cute girls and BIRB? Okay!

The undershirt is made from ponte roma as is the matching collar. The collar is made from two circles that are gathered at the neck to make it all wavy.

The sleeves are the sleeves from my Halloween Nozomi costume because I am lazy and the sleeves are almost identical between the designs anyway :P

The bodice was drafted from a basic bodice pattern. I sewed all of the green ribbons onto the bodice for the stripes and used zip ties/cable ties for boning because I am cheap.

The skirts are 4 layers total: a yellow skirt and a 3 layrered petticoat. Every skirt layer is made from 2 circles for 8 circles total. I hand painted some of the flowers on the yellow print to make them match the reference art a little better since neither of us wanted to make the price jump for custom Spoonflower fabric.

We used simple eyelet trim for the petticoat layers.

The thigh highs are faux thigh highs and the garters are made from matching gold satin that I used to make the bias tape. The stripes are hand painted on.

Fel and I worked together to hand paint the shoes with leather paint.
