At last, I finished my Sailor Fuku tutorial! My Sailor Moon costumes get the most questions by far, and I've been meaning to put together this tutorial foreverrrrr to answer everyone's questions ~ I hope it helps out a few aspiring senshi cosplayers out there <3!

This is my first tutorial, but if it goes over well I might put together more so let me know if there's anything else you'd like to see from me!

Click download to view the complete tutorial in pdf form, or you can download it directly from my website.

I hope you enjoy, feel free to comment or message me with further questions!

Edit: I noticed the new PDF reader on DA is a little wonky ... I did update the fonts in the pdf so they look a little nicer than they did before, but this pdf looks best if you download it and read it in adobe reader/acrobat. | facebook

This was so helpful when I made my first Sailor Pluto cosplay! Thank you so much for making this!  I'm going to end up redoing it now that I have learned a lot more and am more confident in my skills haha but I did have a couple questions regarding the skirt.  I wanted to ask what exactly a "Pocket-Styled hem" is and if you have a tutorial you suggest.  Does this type of hem have anything to do with lining? I don't see when exactly you add in the lining and flip it if that is the way you do it :)

I look forward to more tutorials that you come out with in the future!

Do you sew the outer skirt to the lining, then turn it inside out and iron it? Or are the lining and outer skirt only attached at the top?
You also mention a "pocket style hem". What does this mean?

hey yes I was wonder I'm using the same pattern and also after this tutorial xD but I think I am abit lost there/did something worng I just cut out the top part for the upperbody and the front part it didnt have a V line up more like a U. :/ should I folder up the fabric again cut it out again or change something in my pattern?
LadyValkyrie13 Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
is the reason the pleats are slanted like that (ie. 2'' on top 3'' on bottom) because its eventually cut into the V shape? i am going to be making the skirt for lucy heartfilia from fairy tail and just adding a waist band to the top instead of the bodysuit. will it make a difference? i really like your tutorial as it is easier to follow than others i have seen... please respond asap, i am about to start marking my pleats! haha
SparklePipsi Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I use this exact same pleating method for "normal" pleated skirts all the time!! The difference at the top and bottom is so the pleats flare out at the bottom, so the waist part of the skirt is more narrow than the part that covers your butt.

If you want to see what a "normal" skirt using this method looks like, I also used this pattern for my Love Live skirt tutorial!…
