Sailor Moon

This was my halloween outfit 2011.Image

Neither my mother nor Paddy K recognized me.

I used a white t-shirt which I cut open at the top, and sew on a sailor’s collar. Had great help from elpheal’s video.

I made the skirt  from the same fabric as the collar. It was a really simple construction,  two rectangles and two triangles in the side, with fitting seams at the waist. A white band at the top The head band is a ribbon I folded to a sharp bend, with a button sewed onto it. I put the same ribbon and buttons on the top of the boots.

I sew the front bow together in the middle to make it stay nice, and put a thread through the top of the sleeves to wrinkle them.

I had the wig and the gloves before, and found the boots at a thrift store

  3. Love! I’m currently making a similar sailor moon inspired outfit (I want to be prepared for when the remake comes out- nerdy i know), but I’m using a body, instead of a tshirt and adding pleats to make the skirt!

    • excellent idea! what she really wears is a lot more like a body, and mine left quite a big gap in the waist:) a pleated skirt is also more in line with the school uniform outfit she wears. I took the easy way out!
