DescriptionHere is the first of hopefully many costumes I will make while in Japan, with my snazzy $100 Japanese sewing machine. It took about 2 or 3 weeks working on and off to get it done.
This was my first time making something so tailored (aka the cropped jacket) without using a pattern. In fact, I didn't use any patterns at all, though I did measure the clothes I own to get an idea of how the pieces needed to fit together. For some reason I find myself most proud of the hat. I wish I had more reasons to wear it.
