Question Cardcaptor Sakura Red Dress Pattern?

Hello!

I'm planning to cosplay Cardcaptor Sakura in her traditional red dress (first picture in link) http://cosplayonadime.blogspot.com.a...-captured.html, and I was wondering if anyone would be able to recommend me a suitable pattern? I have Simplicity 2827 http://sewing.patternreview.com/patterns/20732 however I'm unsure of whether any of these patterns will be suitable, even when altered. I've never sewn a costume before so I'm pretty lost...

Also, I don't know whether to make the white blouse separate to the red pinafore or to make them all the one thing?

Any help or advice is much appreciated! (I hope I posted this in the right place, apologies if I didn't D; )

Thanks

It might be possible to use that pattern you linked. You mostly need a good pattern for the bodice because you could cut the skirt as a circle skirt and not worry about needing a pattern for it. You can find lots of tutorials for circle skirts and they are super easy to make. Then you would just attach it to the bodice.

As for your question about making the shirt separate or not, I would make it separate, as well as a white circle skirt that's the same length as the red skirt and then add a ruffle so that you have that white showing at the bottom.

I would make your white one piece and then make a red jumper skirt.
I recently bought a Lolita jumper suit and it is very similar to CCS red outfit.
If you need help I can assist you with your pattern. just message me, your pattern you bought can work but needs adjusting.

First thing, thank you so much for sharing my blog post! Second, that dress pattern is pretty good for Sakura's main dress.

One idea that I didn't mention would be to get a white tutu from a dance clothing store. Place it underneath the dress and fluff it out. Extra POOF! ^w^ Not sure if there are dance stores down there in Australia, but thrift stores and other inexpensive sources (even DIY) could work too.
