Cosplay Plans: Phase 2 Part 5

The Lining Hem AKA The Long Awaited End of Phase 2!!! 😀 😀 😀

Sorry~ I only snapped two pictures because I didn’t want to draw out phase 2 any longer. ^^; As it was, the pinning took forever!!! >o< I had to roll up 7 inches of lining fabric to weight the hem, jabbed myself at least 3 times and when I started sewing, the needle snagged the fabric and had to be replaced.. T^T Thank goodness Maru and Nina were at hand to keep me on track!

The finished skirt!!!

Of course I had to try it on to see how it fit…

Let me just preface this with I rarely wear skirts or dresses. I think they’re pretty – but highly impractical and not worth the extra trouble. So when I tried on my finished skirt, I was downright embarrassed! I felt so exposed and that the hem would fly up at any moment!!! D: (how can girls stand to wear uniform skirts without shorts underneath???) In the middle of my embarrassment this panel from Girl Got Game vol. 10 came to mind…

XD Well said Aizawa, well said.

For it’s intended purpose, my skirt will suffice and when Youmacon rolls around I will be wearing shorts underneath so it won’t be that big of a deal. Besides… it’s blue, has pockets and I made it! Awesome!!! 😀

Thanks for reading!

P.S. Phase 3 is coming soon! Stay tuned! 😀
