Finally, my favorite character from Atelier Ayesha come to life!
This is the second outfit I made with Marie Hawke (390409) and way more complex than the previous. It involves a dozen or so different pieces, custom shoes, an enormous amount of iron-on detail, pintucks, a custom hat, a custom hoop skirt, miles of bows, and oodles of bias tape. And a huge wiccan-style broom, too!
To make it even better? We made two. Yes, really. The second one is fitted for Marie, of course. It took about 8 weeks total of work to make both, though a lot of that time was spent doing the hard part: learning countless sewing and crafting techniques that we had never used before, from gathers to pintucks.
All the gold detail is done using Cricut iron-on vinyl.
Special thanks to AmbypomCosplay for a lot of inspiration: she made a Wilbell for Katsu 2016 and seeing photos of it gave us a lot of the motivation we needed to go all the way with an outfit like this!
