Hello Lalonding! I was wondering how do you make your seifuku uniform collars? Thank you have a great day!!

lalonding:

let me tell you sweet anon. it is 12:15 at night and i have classes in the morning but i put together a shitty, grossly colored collar just for you despite the massive piles of homework i should be doing. no way in hell im making a paint tutorial but here are pictures and what i did

okay here the shape; 1 yard of fabric to be safe. this is short that’s why it doesnt amount up to exactly 1 yard

image

on the other side use tons of INTERFACING. if you use a heavier interfacing, which i recommend you using, just interface one side. the interfacing i used on this was kinda thin (about equal weight to this fabric) so i interfaced everything. again… this could look so much better

image

ironed and folded in half, this is what you should sorta get

image

idk why my mat looks green all of the sudden but here ya go. just dont forget to iron. please iron.

image

for this next step, i’m using iron on hem tape for lazy people that dont want to top stitch. it’s more expensive but this saves so much time. making bias tape is harder but a cheaper alternative. plus, theres several tutorials and shortcuts available all over the internet im just. lazy.

the technique i use with ironing this on is to iron a bit, and pull so the tape wont get crinkly and show uneven folds. i use chalk to trace the lines. (on the left side you can see i accidentally used too much lmao at me) 

image

afterwards sew together on the WRONG side. pike the curved edges and cut the straight edges closest to the edge. i marked where i wanted to leave a hole where it needs to flip at. the hole should be in the center and is to your hand measurement. make sure you caught the fabric on both sides!!! 

image

next is to flip inside out, to the right side and sharpen the corners. i use a chopstick but ive heard people using pencils or something common. just dont use anything sharp unless you hate your collar and want to sew this again. 

image

iron that shit down till its flat and not wrinkly and it’s not shown but the hole in the center is usually top stitched. other people have just sewn the raw edges onto the top which is okay too. 

then you’re done!!!!!!! wooo!!!!!!!!! hope this helped anon im tired goodnight.(dont forget to iron)

A Sewing Foot Guide for Cosplayers

New tutorial! And holy crap IT’S A BIG VIDEO!

After getting all sorts of new sewing feet I decided to make a mini guide (not really mini) about all different kinds of sewing feet and what they can do. In the video description I also linked Amazon places to purchase, as well as more in-depth tutorials of each foot by Sewing Machine Parts Online (where I found all this information.)

And remember: I am an Open Book Cosplayer! Feel free to send any questions in my Ask box or comment on the video!

sorry to bother you but is there any chance you could send me the design you used for your nora heart shirt? I'm trying to cosplay her too and I'm nervous about starting with out a guide ((especially cause I'm new to sewing)) Kay, sorry, Thank you!

eggplantcrusader:

I was nervous and I’ve been sewing for years! It’s actually a lot easier than I had thought it would be. First off you need some interfacing, sorry don’t know the weight of interfacing I have but it’s pretty stiff and looks like this 

image

basically you want it stiff enough to hold your shape 

So I advise starting off practicing with scrap fabric to make sure you got a grasp on the process (it’s what I did to figure out what the fuck I was doing)

image

just basic white linen 

And imo best material for making the final shirt is a dance wear/knit stretchy white material. It gets a good shape across your chest and works great with making the heart

So this is the heart stencil I used

image

Print it out to the size you want the opening to be

Cut it out and in half
