About this Costume
Construction Details:
I cut three long pieces of rib knit. I then sewn them together to make the duster. I sewed the top edges. I cut a small piece of rib knit to make the tie in the front.
I cut up two smaller rectangles for the arm warmers.

I put a silver ring on a chain.

I wore the other materials from the older Rinoa: same skirt, black tank top.

I didn't have the same boots as my previous Rinoa but I'm not fretting.

I made new shorts by cutting up an older pair of leggings, sewed the new edges down with a zig zag stitch. I sewed one zipper total on both legs. I will go out and purchase two zippers in the hear future.

With some of the remnant materials from the leggings, I cut and made a long ribbon. (Yes sadly I couldn't find black ribbon in my house)

I used and styled out my bang clip and put on extensions in my hair.
Personal Thoughts:
Jesus. I'm doing this costume again? YUP. I'm doing it. It's simple and almost a closet cosplay right?
Ok. Doing it. Rinoa is my favorite of all time. :D

I purchased the rib knit material at the fabric district. I found it on a lucky find. I'm pretty happy about that. I always told myself, if you find it.. redo it. So I found it. And that caused me to make it again.
