Guess what guys?
There's only 5 days left to finish my Falkner cosplay before Skecon. Ouch.
Decided to sew on his hakama style pants most of the day. I won't explain so much what I did
I started with doing the pleats. Remember, this is not the authentic way to make hakama. Two back (overlap) and two in front. I'm fully aware that hakama normally have 5 pleats in the front but Falkner's hakama doesn't really look like your typical hakama... and I kinda interpret those two "folds" on the front like pleats soooo... *shrugs* Besides I need to make pleats or I'd have those humongous granny pants which I do not want. lol
|Making front pleats..|
|... and back pleats.|
|Ties cut out|
|Zigzaged all around and sewed them together at one end so I had 2 long ones|
|Ironed to get a middle fold|
|Sew the ties into a long "tube" so that the zigzag is folded inside...|
|Sew a straight seam across the pleats to secure them|
(front piece on photo, of course do same to back piece)
|Pin the ties in place and sew them on|
|They were supposed to end at my knees. lol|
Bye for now!
