Schoolgirl Uniform Tutorial - Kagome Higurashi.

Haaaah, I'm finally done with it! It's pretty simple-looking, but it took a lot of time.
My Kagome Higurashi costume is now 80 % complete - all I need is to get some shoes, socks, and to make her bow & arrows ( I'll make a tutorial on these too ).

I'll be cosplaying her this summer in my hometown! :D

I hope this tutorial helped! If you don't understand some parts, ask and I'll try to come up with a better explanation at a more reasonable hour of the night... day. > >'

Question do you do comissions?

If I make costumes for other people, you mean? I would love to, but I'm not good enough yet, and my sewing machine is busted. If you mean tutorial commissions - I could try. :D

Thank you so much though. Really.  Though I meant I would pay you to make a shirt but if not, that's fine. Though if you make a tutorial for how to make the shirt that would be great.

Thanks so much for such a fantastic tutorial!! I just wanted to check, is the 58 cm right for the length of just the bottom part of the top? (First picture in the tutorial) Or is it meant to be for the whole shirt? Having just the bottom part be 58cm seems very long, that's all. Thank you! :)

You're welcome! And I'm sorry if that seemed misleading, I meant from the shoulder to the hip, the whole shirt. :D

Thank you! I've been trying to find out how to make a schoolgirl uniform to cosplay this year for the first time! What material did you use for this? :)

You're welcome! :)
The fabric is called minimat (in Romanian, I'm not sure if it has the same name in English).

How long did it take for you to make this!? THis is amazing!? Also did you use a sewing machine or did it by hand?
neptunyan's avatar
I can't remember the number of hours exactly, since I sewed bits and pieces every few days, but right now it wouldn't take more than 3-4 hours by hand at the most. I sewed by hand, because I had no sewing machine back then (now I have a sewing machine, but no clue how to use it, so it'll take a while before I sew costumes with it).

And thank you, I'm glad you like it! :D

One more question! What size are you in shirts and skirts? Cuz i'm gonna try to do the exact measurements.. Sorry if it's too personal if you don't wanna answer. 
neptunyan's avatar
I'm not too sure - I think it's around S for shirts and M for skirts? I can give you the exact measurements if you want, it's not a problem! But you'll need to wait a bit, because I'm moving right now, and all my stuff is packed.
