So I absolutely adore the new poison trainer's design and am seriously considering cosplaying her.
I think her guitar would be really fun to make.

But as simple as her dress seems, I am concerned about how to make it properly striped?
The stripes are way too wide to get stripped fabric; besides the colors would never match up.

I'm not sure what the best method would be: some kind of selective dying method? A base dress with the other color striped sewed on? I don't really want to but, fabric paint?

Anyone have an experience with a garment like this?

Umm....I can't say I have personally done anything like this before, but may I make a suggestion?

Get a pattern for a dress and a pattern for sleeves (or you could make either pattern yourself). It would be easier and more accurate if you make the dress from scratch yourself, that way you can ensure the colors are correct and the stripes will be the correct size. You could just cut out the teal fabric into the patterns you need, then cut the stripes and sew them on before you sew the garment together.

Yeah, that does seem like it would produce the best results.

Thank you so much for the suggestion :3

//becomes a hat
I accidentally the gaia all the darn time these days, haha > u <
I cannot believe I found you. This only reinforces my idea that we're secretly one person
and/or we're meant to be together forever.
Whichever.

I can't wait until you get it! I hope you like your gift!
It's hard to shop around here since all we have is a grocery store, a Rite Aid a town away, and a Walmart two towns away.
I opted for the Rite Aid, haha.

//snugs on sichuuhat

Ahaha. It is pretty miraculous.
I don't come on a fraction of the amount I used to, but lately
my old rp buddies have been stirring so that is why I've been checking in more.
And I still default to this forum for some quick cosplay advice |D
It was just meant to be <33

Gosh me too! I am sure I will love it because it came from Sichuu ; u ; <3

Being a hat just feels right. lol


I usually end up lurking around this forum these days.
Sometimes I go over to the Life Issues forum and lurk,
usually just for laughs since a lot of the problems are really small and petty,
which makes me giggle and feel a little better.
Sichuu is a terrible person sometimes! haha

Aha really?
This one is one of the better ones. I always stuck to art freebies,
bartontown/rping and with the occasional pop in here.
Lately I've been in art shops trying to buy something useful with this darn gold |D

Never been in life issues haha, but I can see how that would be amusing.
I've definitely laughed at a ton of things posted here.
It's ok, I am a terrible person too *u*

We can be terrible people together!
If we have to go to hell in a hand basket, can we at least get matching ones? emotion_c8

I have so much gold, man. I never know what to do with it. Almost 3mil.
Sometimes I just give it away. Sometimes I buy art.
Mostly I just stare at it.
sierrachu


Woo~
And yes, we will get the most stylin' matching hand baskets ever for our
picnic/trip down to the hot place =u=
I'll bring the drinks :U

Aha, yeah I have a bit over 4mil, but my inventory is mostly cleaned out.
I find it is actually difficult to get art though ; u ;
Everyvtime someone accepts my order (because holy s**t so many rejections/ignores)
they usually end up forgetting about their shop and cancel the trade later orz;;

That keeps happening to me, too! It's driving me insane!
I just want pretty pictures, Gaia, why can't I have nice things? emotion_8c

I have waaaay too many items.
I have two of the same item that are worth about 2mil but I don't want to sell anything, haha.

No problem! I don't know if you have a sewing machine already or not, but if you are interested in getting one I would highly recommend you look on Amazon first. I got a nice Brother sewing machine for $80 (though technically my boyfriend bought me it, muahaha!).
