Why Princess Sakura?

I was browsing through the Tsubasa images and stumbled upon this one. I decided then that I would wear this costume to my first time at AOD.

How'd you do it?

I don't remember much anymore. I remember two things. 1) That it was a new challenge and I waited until the night before to sew it...and 2) That I messed up so bad while sewing that I ran to Joann's to buy more fabric and remade the WHOLE thing that night. I was still sewing pieces on as we rode the BART to AOD.

After thoughts?

I will most certainly be remaking this again. With higher quality fabric and with more time. I rushed it and for a 16 hour job, I think it turned out amazingly well. But I'd like it to look better and I know I can do it.
