Made in about a month and a half of non-stop sewing. Based off the design from DeviantArt's Jiuge 1817 doujinshi: http://jiuge.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2axv7d
Much love to her for giving me permission to cosplay her design!
The eagle on the hat is hand-embroidered and took at least 3 weeks of sewing anywhere and everywhere I could - the beach, national trust houses, trains etc.! It was such a fun outfit to wear and I really enjoyed looking so fancy. Everyone was lovely and said they really liked the outfit.
