I now remember why I don’t make these very often x_x They take forever to make and I had to keep going back to fix stuff that wasn’t lining up right.
Anyways, I wanted to make an open raincoat just as something cute for my mayor to wear, and figured I might as well share it. It features the leaf symbol as patches on the sleeves, and the animal crossing background pattern is on the shirt with a button up denim skirt. Enjoy! (Just don’t claim it as your own design please.)
Cape designed and sewn by me. You can buy it on Etsy.
The ruffles are 100% handmade and hand sewn.
Almost 10 meters (3.2 feet) of handmade ruffles! The ruffles are 100% made by us. - We cut 4 cm wide strips of velvet and sewed them all together to make a 10 meters long velvet ribbon. . - We then cut 10 cm wide strips of lining fabric and sewed them all together to make a 65 meters long ribbon! (213 feet) - We then pleated by hand the 65 meters long ribbon reducing it’s length to 20 meters. (65 feet) - We then hand sewed the 20 meters of pleated ribbon on the both sides of the velvet ribbon. The ruffles alone took about 3 weeks to be made!
