This outfit contains two pieces, the tunic and the pants. The fabric of the tunic is a thin cotton which is a bit see through and has little dots in different colors. I bought this fabric in Japan.
I am not totally sure what the fabric of the pants contains (bought this fabric a long time ago) but I think it is a woven linen. It has no stretch.
The pants will have an invisible zipper on the sideseam.
Before I draw a model I first draw in the lines of the shoulders, waist, hips, knees and ankles. If those are correct, I start drawing in the whole figure. I use those guidelines because otherwise my model might get out of proportion.
For this design I used pencil, watercolor and fineliner.
First I am sewing the inner seam of the pants. This is because I want to overstitch it for extra strength. After that I sew the waistband in. I added some vlieseline for extra strength there too. In the post with the japanese applications you can see some more detailed pics about that.
