Shiki’s jacket: done

I finished up Shiki’s jacket. I did end up adjusting the arm holes a little to make them bigger. I had to take apart the sides to do that.

I also added the hood. I traced the hood of one of my hoodie jackets to get the pattern. The left is the lining for the inside. The right is the outside part.


When I sewed them together, I only did it on the outside edge. I then placed the draw string inside and sewed right outside of it so it’d form a little tube to stay in.


The only thing left was to sew the hood onto the jacket. And here it is, Shiki’s jacket, finished!

Start of Shiki

Well, I’ve been really busy lately, so we decided that we wouldn’t use new costumes this year for A-kon and AnimeFest. We’re going to re-use our TWEWY costumes. But! I’m adding another to our group. Jess will be Shiki.

I started on her jacket a few days ago, and now I’m almost done. I used a shirt pattern I had and altered it by cutting it shorter. I then added the white edges.


I’m using cotton interlock and chose polyester interlock for the inner lining. I did this by cutting out the same shape in polyester, pinning it together, sewing most of the sides together (leaving one opening), and then turned it inside out.



And here’s the jacket now!



I may have to alter it a little because the arm holes felt a little tight. Next, I’ll also be adding the hoodie.

I asked Jess to buy the shirt and skirt, so I will need to take care of:
– wig
– hat
– necklace
– bag
– boots
