I bought this fabric the last time I went to Sydney Road. It's just so... grey tartan! What's not to love? I actually bought enough to make a JSK (since I'm still wibbling over the Infanta green tartan JSK), but then I started thinking I needed more work-friendly stuff. So, that narrowed me down to either a pencil or a box-pleated skirt.
Front view - the pleats are all over the place since it's on the floor, but my mannequin's got other stuff on it... And yay for using up the random rick-rack I found in my trims box!
Back view - I made a detachable back bow with the spare fabric.
Full view - petticoat floof!
Neck bow detail - aaaah, I've loved neck bows ever since I cosplayed Gogo Yubari. I wish they were more common in lolita!
Skirt bow detail - this is detachable too... I'm debating making a couple more with the rest of the scraps.
The most awesome thing about this skirt, though, is that if I run out of time on the stuff I'm working on, I can do a quick Persona 4 cosplay, just by hemming it up higher XD;
