cute bag! I like that it's not exactly like any of the seat belt bags I've seen before.
I'd also like to know, where did you get the seat belts?

Sketching the front part till it looks right is a good way to go if you have nothing to base it on. That's what we did when making a sailor collar. We actually cut it out of paper a few times and pinned it on the shirt to make sure it was the right shape  Cheesy I never realized they shouldn't have a shoulder seam... at this point I wouldn't worry about it though and just have the seam since you're so far along...

From those reference images, I think the sleeve should go all the way around. It's like two batting filled bands around each armhole.

Also, bows are always fun!!

the back of the collar looks good! a bit of bunching but that may iron out... I know how unexpectedly difficult those sailor collars can be to get to stay flat.
(as a side note, are you using a pattern for it? last year my mom and I went crazy trying to figure out how to sew one without a pattern haha)

I would iron the pleats so they are sharp folds... it will make a big difference I think.
Can't wait to see the front and the bows!

don't forget the finish on the armholes too. I'm not positive from the reference pictures I've found, maybe someone that has watched Sailor Moon more recently can share... but the armholes should have a bit of stuffing like the waistband if I recall correctly.

ooo I like the lace on the legs. It's a nice touch. If you haven't sewn up the waistband completely yet, maybe even a little more batting, though it looks good anyways.
I think its all starting to come together quite well!

(and with all the sailor moon fans around, I'll admit to being a fan too... twelve years ago! eep! I counted and that's how long it's been!)
985  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Crocheting onto fabric? on: March 17, 2009 09:43:00 AM
I'm probably not much help... but anyways...
This looks like something my mom told me how to do. It was very tight embroidery with the pieces between the lines of embroidery carefully cut out of the fabric.
To do it in crochet, You would use a tiny hook that can go into the weave of the fabric and crochet out from there. Make a simple chain on the end of the fabric following its shape, then you can go on in any pattern at all. Sorry I don't know of a tut... and sorry if that doesn't make sense. If no one else knows how to do this, I can take a close up of something I have that has crochet panels to maybe help you figure it out, but it's a much different pattern than this.

Glad I could help!
The new pleats look great! Can't wait to see more

I definitely get obsessive too and need to match the pics! haha the character I'm doing looks different in every picture I have of her  Roll Eyes and it's driving the perfectionist in me crazy!

Back to your costume:
From what I can gather, the outfit with the yellow stripe is a different transformation of her; it looks like it's a different outfit than the one you're trying to do, so I wouldn't bother with the stripe.

As for the pleats, maybe iron them and try it on? If the tops of the pleats spread out funny when you move, then stitch them down for a little bit on top. Sometimes it's fine without the stitching.
About the spandex band, do you mean that white "V" shaped line above her skirt? I would say yes, stitch that to the skirt. I would also suggest making it a tube instead of a flat band and putting some batting inside to make it a little thicker... the sailor scout outfits all have that little roll above the skirts that's not just flat.

Last but not least, the change to red sounds good  Smiley

(PS: I've never made a sailor scout costume, so I hope I don't lead you the wrong way... I'm going by what I've read/seen and what I know from the other costumes I have... but I'm happy to help!)

This is really beautiful. It made me think of these little wire trees with different stones used as leaves from when I was little. I've never seen one with the wire only. It looks great!

The bow does look red in all the reference images I can find of her... the skirt, collar, and boots are pink though. Do you have pleats in your skirt (its a little hard to see if there are pleats but they're just not ironed yet)? I would suggest putting the big pleats in since that's really clear in the reference images (If you have them already sewn but just not ironed, I'd say iron them now so its easier to see what the skirt will end up looking like and you can tell if anything needs fixing before you put it all together).

If you need any help figuring out what fabrics to use, for instance for the bow, I suggest also looking at videos of the character (on youtube or something). I'm working on a cosplay currently and found videos very helpful to figure out how the clothes move and even the colors. Still images vary much more from one to the other than videos from the actual show.

sorry this post is so long... I get really into it when cosplay is concerned  Cheesy

So I was just scrolling really quickly through the new topics, and went "Hey it's Ichigo!" out loud haha Did you make his sword too?

Nice job on them all... I especially like the really fluffy pigtails!
