I LOVE this picture!! This is from the Zero no Tsukaima shoot I did with Oscar on Sunday~

I made the cloak, skirt, wand and star! Shirt and socks are from Target, and the Mary Janes are from Payless if you're wondering x)

I also filmed myself getting prepped for this shoot :D [link]

I'm sure you've gotten this question many times...
But I recently went to the mall to find the skirt and couldn't find it anywhere...How did you make it? it seems like it's my last option before the convention in two weeks ;n;
Thank you so much, i'm sorry for the bother! Amazing cosplay!!

Don't worry about it! :) It's pretty simple! I'll give an example using my measurements. So, I want the skirt to sit on my natural waist, I want the band to be 26 inches, and I want full, 2 inch pleats. So, in total, to get 26 inches, I need 13 2 inch pleats (plus some extra for the zipper) Measure how much fabric the pleats take up (fold a pleat the way you like it, then unfold it. I think this one was 7 inches per pleat). So 7 inches for each pleat x 13 pleats. 7x13=91 inches of fabric needed. That doesn't mean you need 2.5 yards of fabric, I usually use 1.5 yds and sew two rectangular pieces together to get that amount. Make all the pleats, pinning as you go. Iron them down, and then sew across them to secure them in place.

Now, measure the length you need. Add a couple inches or so to make up for the hem and the space that will be used sewing on the waistband. Use an iron for the hem, it makes it waaaay easier :D

For the waistband, I like to have mine around 2 inches. Cut 4.5-5 inches of fabric at your waist measurement, fold in half with an iron, and sew it to the skirt top (right sides together)

Take a zipper (I usually use a 7 inch zip) and sew it on~ I usually hand-sew mine because machine sewing zippers can be tricky. Sew up the bottom of the skirt and you're done :D

If I forgot anything let me know x) Good luck!!
