Aqua sash help?

Hello! I'm in the early planning stages of an Aqua cosplay from Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep. I have a handle on most of the pieces, but her tied white sashes keep eluding me for some reason.

How does this even

How does it tie together? There are obviously at least 3 pieces seen on the front alone (probably more akin to four) but how? I keep beating my head against my sewing form and it's not affording me any wisdom. OTL

Hmmm... I see that as a very, very long sash wrapped & tied, not separate pieces. Although upon closer inspection it needs two pieces.

Try this, see how close it gets:

Get a piece of white fabric with nice drape 2 yards/ meters long. A rayon dress fabric would be nice. Cut it into 8"-10" wide strips (get at least four out of your yardage width) and do lapped seams end to end to get two roughly 8 yard long sashes. It's a lot of hemming, take breaks.

Then try tying it on.

I'd start with the middle of the sash at your natural waist in the front, right on your belly button.
Wrap to the back and do a single overhand knot (the first step in tying a shoelace).
Pull the tails toward the front, maybe tucking them through the waist portion once to allow the downward drape to start at the sides.
Criss-cross in front, allowing them to drape low.
Pass the tails back up to the back.
Tie a VERY loose square knot. In fabric, it can be manipulated to look like what is seen there (and part of how it got it's name).

Take your second sash and tie it like a shoelace with only one loop to one side at the hip, pass across and tie to the other hip area.
Arrange artfully.

It won't look exactly like it's drawn, but it will be beautiful and dynamic in real fabrics.
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive.
