These are the two fabrics I used for the hood and top of Kairi's dress. The black was a thick cotton and the white is this really nice dance stretch material that's pretty thick (I got it at a place that wasn't JoAnns).
Making the scalloped edges were difficult on a slippery fabric that has four way stretch… So I used pins… LIBERALLY. This was two layers of fabric :3
Then I used this fancy scallop stitch thing on my sewing machine then cut really, really close to it. This was the result C:
I know it sounds bad to just say "then I made it into a tube top" but that's really exactly what I did. Two pieces of fabric roughly the size of my chest and then sewed together (right sides together) and I got this sucker. I probably could have done it better but it works ^^;;
Totally forgot to take progress pictures of the hood D: I feel really bad >< But I basically took one of my jackets and copied the shape of the hood and then sewed it... YEAH :D
Here's the back of the hood just so you guys have an idea what it looks like. My hood is actually a bit on the small side so it looks kinda awkward when I put it on my head. But it fits! And I like how it looks better when it's down because it's not overwhelmingly large. C:
Here's a picture of the hood and top from the front. The top looks really messed up due to there being a bow right between the breasts on my Dummi. XD But you get an idea.
That's a good picture of the top and some of the hood. I'm sorry this tutorial/progress post wasn't very good. But at least it's something right? If you guys have anymore questions... Ask me here<3 Or just comment.
