Hello everyone! Sorry in advance for the book, I'm planning on doing asuna for a convention i have coming up (But i guess that's a common quote ) No sure what the version is referred to...she has so many versions but it's the version that Ichigo did! (Which looked amazing by the way) But i am soooo stuck! I'm very new to sewing but luckily know some people who are experienced, and a grandmother who has sewn for many many years.
Here is the reference picture
For all of my previous cosplays i found very similar patterns and worked from there, but for asuna her costume seems so unique. any tips for working this out? Is there a similar pattern to get her top ? And how do you get the curves so look so great? did you free-hand them by eye? or did you draft out a pattern to get the bottom correct? I'm so stuck i don't know where to start, so any advice would be wonderful!

My boyfriend also wants me to him an ALO version of kirito but the design behind that scares me as well. Any tips from people who have made it already? what did you do? I'm thinking the SAO version is easier, especially since i already found a starting pattern for that. Any advice? I'm so lost T_T

Yes! Sorry your multiple dots at the end were slightly confusing me. How did you do it? All from scratch?

Jason - Yeah that's where I got my fabric but the stores here have been having issues keeping stuff in stock. I had bought the last of what they have. =/ I'll have to go back and see if they have more once I have some money.

RueJericho - I'm not sure if you're going to find a pattern that looks ANYTHING like that particular outfit of Asuna. Honestly I'd suggest making a duct tape dress form and draping it. I've actually been doing draping instead of patterns for some time now because it's just less frustrating (for me). You will most likely want to get some muslin or just really cheapy fabric and drape that to make your pattern. Then you have it forever!!

I just made this tutorial on the ALO Kirito outfit:
http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=311604

LadySasha, That sucks big time..You can always order it online..Sometimes they have a free shipping thing....lol
Other then that, just call them and ask when they think they will have it back in stock and go that morning..It will look a million times better if you do it all in one piece rather then adding to it..

Jason - I am NEVER ordering from Joann's website again. I was originally supposed to get all my Asuna fabric from the online store and it was a nightmare. They ended up being out of stock of the red I needed (different stuff then what I ended up going with) and they didn't inform me until about 2 weeks after I paid for it and it took me a month to get the white interlock my shirt is made of. Never. Agagin. xD I'll just have to find something different for the boot covers. It won't be a big deal if they're a little different shade of red.

That tutorial is awesome I'm sure people will really appreciate it

I agree, Joann's website is horrible. I've ordered from it before and the shipping was ridiculously slow. Everything got here alright but it took way too long. I've gotten things from Japan in a shorter time than from Joann's.
