I instantly fell in love with @lily_on_the_moon ‘s gorgeous Belle and had to feature her in this week’s #SewingSpotlight! (Photo by @bcwphoto ) Here’s what she had to say about its constuction:
‘Belle’s winter dress from the 1991 Disney was in my cosplay plans for years but I never found the will to actually make it. Then, Hannah released this design and I fell in love as soon as I saw it. I just needed to make it ! One of my biggest cosplay crush. I got the Cosplay Concepts Vol.1 for my birthday and found almost every fabrics I needed last summer. Plus, it was the perfect winter cosplay for this year !
‘The hardest part for me was to keep the beautiful shape of the dress despite wearing many layers. I was afraid that adding the coat over the dress, I would look too large on the top. I decided not to line the top of the coat, and to tie the ribbon with Velcro under the knot, to stabilize the coat and refine the silhouette.
‘The entire costume was a challenge as I’m rather used to making easy costumes with not so much details. Adding this design to my cosplay wishlist, I thought I would give up over the difficulties I would meet. But thanks to some friends advices and the support of my family. friends and community, I made it in one month focusing only on this costume, and I enjoyed every second it!’
