Over the past couple weeks I've made 3 very different capes, using zero patterns and vague measurements:
2. Some of my friends joke about me being a magical girl or superhero. Well, why the heck not? I haven't been able to come up with an emblem though... ideas?
I've also made the skirt and bow for this set, plus have a blue wig to go with it. The bow is actually a hair clip, I've just pinned it above since, well, my dress form clearly doesn't have a head. I ran into some trouble with the skirt, even though it's a plain circle pattern with bias binding on the hem. The cheap satin cut and stretched unevenly, plus ended up too short, so I thought to add another layer, and decided on the blue after finding the fabric for #3 below. I wanted to use green tulle at first, but it really didn't work and I'm pleased with the way the blue looks.
|I got this wig for $1.50 (!) at a thrift store. It's nice quality with a skin top, just needed a good wash.|
|The Z is fleece applique (ignore the chalk lines)|
|My form is much smaller than Zombie, so hopefully the shoulders will fit him better.|
I also made the pieces underneath the red cloak a couple years ago. The blouse is from an altered Gosu Rori mook pattern, and I think the skirt was from an online tutorial. The fabric has a pattern of tiny roses. Here's a better shot of those:
I'm thinking I want one more cape... not sure on the fabric though.
