Description

For Halloween 2013, after having bangs newly cut, I decided that I was going to be Yukiko Amagi from Persona 4. I used both the Eva jacket and the Burda Magazine Pleated Mini Skirt (10/2013) patterns. With the Eva, my alterations included adding a sailor collar which was perhaps my greatest feat in sewing yet: I drafted my own pattern for that. It was the crowning achievement of my year when the collar fit perfectly into the jacket. Sadly, I don’t have a picture of the back. The fabric I used to make my collar was used from an old, horribly sewn sailor fuku I bought at a convention years ago.

I was doing really well sewing the jacket until time constraints came up. Also, I took the picture of it after I had worn it, so it is a bit . . . ruffled. But I will say that those sleeves are the best I’ve ever sewn. I even blind-hemmed the cuffs.

For the skirt, this was my first time ever working with wool. It’s amazingly simple and steaming for pre-shrinking certainly proved cathartic for my building stress. Along with those articles, I also made a headband and a tie. Then, I followed my niece around the street giggling maniacally and saying things like, “Perkuma.”
