Hey, I have a little sister who wants to go to Ohayocon with me as Kiki, but I can't find any sewing patterns that would look nice for her. She is roughly a child size 8-10. Does anyone have any ideas on what I could do for her dress?

Loftwing: I don't have a commercial pattern, but this is what I used for my Kiki dress: http://www.randomlyhappyblog.com/201...t-pattern.html My only advice is to divide the bust by four because if you're cutting on the fold then the front piece will have half your bust and the second back piece will have the other half accounted for.

As for me, I would like to know what fibers I should use for my broom. Should I use pine like a traditional besom (which I've seen some cosplayers do) or buy a broom (or two), cut off the corn fibers, and reshape and reattach that to a dowel?

Thank you so much! My sister will be very happy. She is only 8 so her being that age, I've been getting hounded day in-day out about this. Arigato!
