Hello everybody! It has been a while since my last blog post, I have been so busy with the holidays and my internship! at this moment, however, I just feel like blogging again and I have something really nice today: A new tutorial on my werewolf costume! Slowly but steady all the pieces of this costume are coming together and I plan on finishing some more stuff very soon. In this tutorial I will show you the second skirt of this costume. It is the cute patchy overskirt in the drawing I wrote about last year. It will be worn over the underskirt I already made, as can be seen in these pictures (yay for snow, I love it!):
It’s very wide (the bottom tier is more than 9,5 m long!) and flows around your legs with every movement you make. I love this skirt, and if you want to make one too, I will explain how to do so below!
Hello everybody! As promised, here is the first tutorial on my blog! This skirt is the first part of my costume for Ylva, the new character I wrote about last week. She wears it as an underskirt, so only the lower part will be visible. On top of it there will be a shorter skirt made of linen scraps, more about that one later!
This half circle shirt is easy to make, flows out beautiful and is a good basic piece for every (female) costume. It closes in the back with a slit and a tie closure (is it called like that?) The flounce I added is optional, I liked it because of the peasant-y look it gives. Not adding it looks also very good and certainly saves you a lot of time, because gathering the fabric is quite time-consuming. For making this skirt I recommend using non-stretch fabric. Any kind of light-weight, supple fabric will do, as long as it’s not too stiff. Now, on to the tutorial!
