It's fine ^_^ It just makes it easier to help you if I know more specifics on what you need help with.

So you want to do that version of Vocaloid, but you want to do Kaito instead of Gakupo?

And you want to make a maid outfit? You could probably find a pattern online for a maid outfit. Basically to use a pattern you take the measurements of the person who is going to be wearing the outfit, match it up with the pattern (they have dotted lines...I believe, for different sizes), pin the pattern to the fabric, and cut. Patterns are pretty easy to use if you follow the directions on them.

As for using your sewing machine, just look up what each of the stitches do (some are better for holding things together, while others are more decorative, etc...). Oh and make sure you back-stitch at the beginning, and then when you are done sewing - it keeps the stitches from coming loose.

Im doing both. Now that I look at the picture posted by Amandy-Chan, I can see where I will run into problems like the details around the bottom of the coat and sleeves.



Ah.

And there should be tutorials online on how to fade like that.

Oh the fade is simple with dye but the gold pattern.
Angels may not come when you call them...


The gold pattern looks like embroidery, but as an alternative, maybe you could make an applique? Looks a lot like embroidery from far away.


...But they'll always be there when you need them.


Thank you! This actually answered alot of questions and I should be able to do this on a few parts for the Gakupo outfit when I get to it.

Friendly Bookworm

You may want to pick a different, more easier cosplay, before attempting those. That way any scraps you have left over, you can use to practice.

But tons of online research can be very helpful indeed, and collecting tons of reference pictures from many angles.

That would be great but I get the feeling you don't live in California.
