Hi! My name's Katie, and I'm cosplaying Codename Sailor V to Tora-con on April 20-22.
I HAVE NOTHING FOR THIS COSPLAY YET. surprised
(except a blue skirt with pleats)
But, I do have teh sewing skillz.
Usually I like to buy clothes that look like what the character is wearing, and then alter them to make them as close as I can, but jebus... I cannot find a blue sailor uniform shirt in my size... ANYWHERE. It's simply driving me mad.
I've thought about just taking a normal polo and making it into a sailor shirt... buuuut... I've tried it once before and it ended badly.
In short, does anyone know how to make a sailor uniform shirt out of another shirt and/or make one at all?
Tutorials, pictures, site links, etc. are much appreciated.
Tysm! This is a great tutorial. I think I'm confident that I can make a collar now! Just need to buy some blue cotton fabric from Joann's, and a white shirt from Salvo's to put it on. Do you happen to have a tutorial of how to do the fabric on the sleeves too? smile
