Although I have been posting here for a while, and sewing for a bit longer, my first OFFICIAL sewing project on a real life sewing machine of my own was a mini petticoat  Smiley And despite my many comments in the clothing board, this is my first clothing project posted here on craftster!

It was originally for a cosplay/costume of Card Captor Sakura, but I'm slowly fading away from that happy hobby, so I never got around to finishing my petticoat!

Until now!

YAAAYY!! It's done & so is a bit of my cosplay inspiration!

Sorry for my face XD It's so hot here, and I was crafting all day!

And yes, I am wearing shorts underneath  Lips sealed

I'm relatively happy with the result, considering the fact I'm a bit of a novice at this sort of thing. I had such a hard time putting on the elastic! But now I am a bit tempted to try making a circle skirt  Smiley

Tutorial used: A WONDERFUL (German I think? Excuse my naivety) DUTCH! (correction, thanks to Moonrise  Cheesy ) cosplay site found via Cosplay.com There is an English translation if you need it!


Comments & criticism is gladly appreciated  Cheesy!

Great job! And you look so calm! I've spent the last week making the Petticoat From Hell, and it's scaring me how large it's getting. But yours is so small and sweet! And congrats on the first project post  Wink

Crochet uses a hook. Pirates have hooks, and they are cool. So crochet is cool because of the hook.

Nice skirt - but the language is NOT German, it's Dutch!  Tongue

Best wishes from Germany

Your petticoat is lovely.
The site is Flamish, not Dutch Wink Not that there's a very big difference, but many sewing terms are different.
For the rest the difference is a bit like the difference between US English and UK English. So in general if one person speaks Dutch and the other Flamish, they will understand each other, but there are some words that are very different (or one word that has a very different meaning).

Why are you apologising for your face? You look really pretty! The petticoat is gorgeous, I'm hoping to get round to making something similar myself soonish. I imagine it's quite hard sewing tulle/net fabric, so well done, it's great!
