(It's a Samurai Geisha) I got this costume last year. When I opened it, I thought that there was more I could with it. (This was before I got my sewing machine.)


I added the ruffled trim to the skirt, the belt and the collar. Then I added this rose ribbon to the neck and above the front center hole.

Very nice.  Much cuter than the original version.

Thanks, I've got an other reconstruction/alteration coming soon.
Trying to sell them to raise money for this years costume.
