Cardcaptor Sakura 4

I’m really pleased with the way the Cardcaptor Sakura costume turned out! You can read the rest of the tutorials on how to make this costume here –

In the original belt design there is a small pink strap that goes across the bellybutton. I decided to alter the design a bit by making it into a under-bust corset. This gives the illusion that the shirt and belt are the same piece.  It give more structure to the gown and makes it slimming! I added plastic boning to each seam and lined it with the same dress fabric. I finished off the back with buttonhole. It’s a little more elegant than using metal grommets. If your wondering how the wings were made check out my wing tutorial!

It’s GORGEOUS!!! The waist cincher really is the cherry on the sundae. I love the skirt— so many ruffles and poofs! Just like Sakura’s outfits! 🙂
Grats, it’s gorgeous and I’m sure the customer will think so too!

pretty as always^_^ Curious, have you considered stitching chinese frog buttons around the sides of colored grommets to make it a bit prettier?
