Hello ~! In an earlier post, I mentioned I had something exciting coming up to share with you all!
Well, here it is!
A month or so ago, I walked into my AP world History class and was told that instead of a traditional final exam, we were going to have to pick a historical figure who was important to history and write a five page essay on them. I had thought Marie Antoinette sounded like a fun and easy subject matter. And then I read the second part of the project and completely set my heart on her!
"Create a costume reminiscent of the figure you chose..."
I was so excited at that point! I come to school early the next day to sign up (I wanted to get Marie Antoinette no matter what!) And I got her! Excited, I began sketching the dress I would create for her. And then I left it alone until a good week before it was due (I had other priorities, okay? xD?).
Anyways, the project was due today and through all of my procrastination, I got it done~! I'm pretty insanely proud of the dress, since it's the first JSK I've made that fits me decently (not perfectly, but I still need to practice and improve!) and I'm going to share it with you all!
Here's the original sketch ~
I didn't originally wanted to make it only slightly lolita, but as deadlines approached I decided to stick to what I was familiar with and made it more Marie Antoinette inspired lolita. You can see that I drew this on the back on the assignment paper;;; xD.
And a progress picture~
I started this dress late Saturday night and finished it on Sunday around 5:00 PM ;v;. This picture was probably around 2:00 PM. My face is blocked because I looked terrible from spending all day sewing xD.
This is the outfit I wore today~! A lot of people told me I looked like Princess Peach or Sleeping Beauty which totally made me happy xD.
This is just me derping around a bit. Don't worry, you guys, I know she never said that! It just seemed so appropriate ~
And another nice picture! I think you can see details in the top of the JSK the best from here ;v;.
I had some sewing machine drama while making it though ( All of my needles broke x~x), so the golden accents are all held on with hot glue ;~;. Hopefully, I can sew them on properly soon.
I think I got a good grade! My teacher did say she expected a bird cage or boat in my hair though xD.
So what do you guys think~? I'm really happy with it!
Thanks for looking~ ☆
