About this Costume
Construction Details:
Skirt: modified from New Look 6843 (my favorite basic skirt pattern, I've used it in some form for six costumes now). I added a kick pleat in the back and two in the front, placing them along the same lines as the darts. Invisible hem FTW.
Shirt: modified from Butterick 4343. I prefer princess seams over darts, so I took some liberties with Athena's design.
Blazer: This was the toughest part. I used Simplicity 1780, added the proper seams in the back, and made the sleeves full-length instead of three-quarters (and then folded them back for Athena's cuffs). The collar was really tricky, but I think it turned out all right.
Boots: These are the boots I used for Katara all those years ago! I painted them and added the teal stripes with ribbon and bias tape.
Glove: I cut up one of the gloves I used for Annie and added the extra bits using felt.
Widget: Yet another old costume piece recycled! I used one of the large acrylic cabochons from my Fai staff and painted it using transparent glass paint. I love how it seems to glow in certain lights!
Personal Thoughts:
Thanks to sourdough for lending me his 3DS so I could play Dual Destinies! I love how our group turned out!

SUPER THANKS to pikacello for making my wig and to Hoshikaji for making the attorney badges!
