Panty Anarchy - Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt
This costume was made quickly in the summer of 2014. It was originally for two different Panty and Stocking groups, but neither one actually happened unfortunately.
The costume was made with a simple pattern and a lot of modifications. Panty is a very sexual character and therefore doesn't cover much (i.e, short skirts and low spaghetti strap dress). I made it so the costume would be a tad more modest as I felt more comfortable wearing it that way.
The back of the dress includes some elastic smocking, which requires sewing strips of elastic in rows. This makes it so I can get in and out of the dress without the use of an opening or zippers. This also made the dress very form fitting, appropriate for the character, and the lack of elastic smocking on the skirt of the dress made it flare out a bit more, also appropriate.
The shoes were simply modified by being painted red. I had a very hard time finding red heels that weren't extremely high, so painting smaller heels had to work.
