Rin the cat girl of muse! She has by the far the most energy in the group. Where does she find it all!

We tossed around a couple of ideas but decided on Mogyutto `LOVE` de Sekkin Chuu! outfits figuring they would easier to achieve. Cute girls in cute maid outfits with chocolates!

I used simplicity pattern 1586 for the base dress. It had princess seams which I wanted because of the slit in the dress. I sewed some basic ruffles down the neck...they aren't super visible while the neck collar is in place. The apron was my own pattern draft but I did use an apron pattern as a guide for the shoulder ruffles. The lines are done in ribbon. All the triangular lace was cut down in various lengths from the original lace.
The neck collar piece and head band are made with the original lace uncut. The neck collar ruffle was made using the same dull satin I used for the apron. I fray checked the edges, gathered it and sewed it the lace and the ribbon together. It snaps shut in the back. The waist bow and shoe bows were made with green taffeta and black velvet ribbon was sewn down for the lines. The wig was quickly purchased because I had switch characters and couldn't get the one I really wanted. The ponytail bit was made by wrapping wefts around a pvc pipe that I had sealed one of the ends on. I glued a couple of bobby-pins to that. It was hard to slide one and ended up falling a part a bit.
