I'm performing with a maid cafe group at an anime convention this month, and decided to sew my own outfit instead of buying one.  This is only the second time I've made anything with a bodice, so I was really nervous about it XD



I made the ruffled underskirt, the black overdress, the apron, the ribbon choker, and the maid headdress.

And a bonus pic, from my photoshoot for making our maid "photocards":


I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, although the bodice fit came out a little wonky.  Having the apron tied help though, so it's definitely usable for my performance Smiley

Great job!  It looks wonderful.  I like how the skirt sits.

That's totally adorable!  Very nice job!  The apron and the little puff sleeves, and the puffiness of the skirt - so cute.

You're not going to Otakon, by any chance, are you?  I'm also working on an outfit for my girlfriend to wear there.

Hehe yaay!!! Thanks everyone, I'm glad it looks good to someone other than myself XD

@LeMieux - It's for the Neko Neko Maid and Hostess Club, and we're performing at Mechacon ^.^ I worked on it on and off for about a week to complete the entire set... so probably totalling around 12~ish hours?

@monkeystuffer - Not for Otakon, unfortunately... it's just too far away XD  I hope to go one day, but it'll have to wait until I have the travel funds!

@cursive_queen - Mechacon!! That's the con I'm going to ^.^ Will you be there?
