We live in Japan and my 3yo is obsessed with this anime.  So she wanted a purikyua 5 outfit. This is version 2.  I do all my sewing after the girls are asleep and always forget to measure.  Version 1 I will keep for when she's about.... 8? oh well.

This is the original:

And here's my version:

Not great pics sorry. Sad

I used an undershirt for the top as it's really hard to get plain white tees here.  It is a little too thin.  I think I'm going to make a new one with a heavy tee shirt.

White is not a great colour on my monkeygirl and as you can see in the third pic she got it filthy.  Oh well, it was fun to make and she loves it which is the main thing!

Thanks!

The butterfly was cut out of both material and interfacing at the same time so I didn't have to worry about trying to cut the same shape twice!  Then I ironed it on to the shirt and edged it on the machine with matching pink narrowly spaced but wide zigzag stitches.  (Does that make sense???) 

Even with appliqueing a ready made shirt it wasn't that tricky as the material is thin so I could just bunch it up out of the way while I sewed.

I've been motivated by this project to applique random things over the stains on more of DDs t-shirts now.

That is really cute, I especially love the skirt design and the material you used is awesome. Did you create the pattern yourself?

Thanks!! No pattern actually.  I just copied the picture on the website.  I love mking box pleats so that's why that happened and I hate hemming so everything else is topstitched tubes. Smiley
