Japanese girl's sailor suit

When I was in California, I met an Italian girl who liked Japanese manga very much. She likes Japanese girl's sailor suits especially and asked me to show her my old ones(But I've already thrown them out...).

I remembered it today, and I made a sailor suit shape pouch. This suit is summer version.
It closes with a snap on the back of sailor collar.
It was difficult to put the pleated skirt on the pouch and I couldn't make it in a good way... I'll try again!

I want to thank you for writing your blog, i have not been at work to day as i am unwell and reading your blog, looking at your fantastic photos and just hearing of what you have been up to has made me feel a lot better. I also want to thank you for the brilliant origami ideas, ive recently started doing origami again and have had much fun making the ones you have.
Keep up the fantastic sewing and traveling.

Hello Danni!
Thank you so much for your comment.
I feel very happy to hear that. I also have no jobs recently and stay at home and sew every day. It's fun to make something by my own hands.
I want to see your origami works.
Thank you!

What's your email address and can send you some pictures, I'm still only learning so there nothing complex, last night i made Totoro, i was very pleased by how he came out, i also made some kind of sea fish and a wedding dress, my plan tonight is to make the kimono, but it will not be as pretty as yours as pretty origami paper is hard to find in England, i do my best with what I've got.
i love your sewing, i think it is very very cute and wish i could come up with ideas like that.

hope to hear from you soon

Love this. In my younger days, my school uniform was pleated. Our uniform was made of cotton and it was difficult to iron them too.
