Dress - The dress was based off of the Tom and Linda Platt pattern supplied by Vogue (V1474). I modified the pattern so that the bodice and skirt were separate from each other. The top was further adjusted by changing the thickness of the shoulders and adding a floofy insert in the bust. The skirt's slit was brought to the front side.

Wig - I used a black wig in the style of Mio from Purple Plum Inc. I trimmed the bangs to get a natural but blunt cut and cut some of the side locks to create the longer side bangs Yuuko has. I separated two locks from each side of the wig and set them aside. I gathered the rest of the hair and made a high side ponytail. I took part of the left lock of hair and draped it over the top of the ponytail and pinned it in place.

Accessories - The hairpiece was made with scrap worbla, a small comb and the fabric flower. The worbla was heated and rolled into thin cylinders. To create the hairpiece the cylinders were attached and shaped to a rectangular piece of worbla on a flat surface. The longer vines were made first and then joined by the smaller ones that cross over and under. The buds were shaped once all the vines were created. The completed piece was shaped on last time by placing it on my head and shaping each vine one by one until I was satisfied with the result.
