Any opinions on Natsume cosplay?

I would like to cosplay as a character from the series "Natsume's Book of Friends". Where the main character dresses up like Houzukigami:

I'm a beginner at sewing; I tend to do better at altering clothes rather than sewing from scratch. From these images, would a beginner like me have a chance of making the outfit? Or would I be better off if I buy the outfit after saving money for it? They're selling one online (sorry, couldn't post here because it appeared as spam).
I won't be going to any conventions until around March-April or around July of next year, so that is about a year to complete it. If this doesn't work out, I have a back up cosplay ready. Any opinions? Thanks for reading!

Yay more Natsume cosplayers!

I actually find Japanese clothes to be much easier to make than Western because all the pieces are rectangles sewn together. There are a bunch of tutorials online for yukatas/kimono style clothing and there are some commercial patterns out there too.
