Winter School uniform
AWA 2012, Katsucon 2013
I made the pattern for the top, and it worked out really well! It’s very hard to get on and off, because of how tight-fitted it is, but I’m really proud with how it came out. I looked over and used a cosmode pattern book I have as a guide for understanding how the sailor collar should really work.. and I’ve finally mastered it! I’m so happy~ The jacket has an invisible zipper up the side.
The turtleneck underneath is actually a bodysuit I made. I figured it would be easier and the shirt wouldn’t come untucked.
The pleated skirt is one of the things I always dread in school uniforms. This one is probably one of my best pleated skirts to date, but I did something really bizarre to cover the zipper area. One day I’ll get it perfect.
The white “stitching” on the jacket was actually quite fun. Done with some embroidery floss and a large needle.
Made in 2012
