Morgiana Cosplay Pattern Tutorial [Magi] by firecloak Morgiana Cosplay Pattern Tutorial [Magi] by firecloak
This is a rough guide on how to make the dress for Morgiana from Magi: Labyrinth of Magic

More details on making the outfit at my website.

This is a rough guide on how to make Morgiana's dress. I used one of Simplicity's top patterns. It's not a comprehensive tutorial, but it should give you an idea on what to do. I'm assuming you understand about seams and basic sewing. Google and DA have great tutorials on circle skirts and zipper installation.
  1. Cut out the front and back of the top.
  2. Sew the darts in for the front of the top
  3. Sew the top front and top back sides together.
  4. Cut the "back" in half. This is where the zipper will go.
  5. Cut out a full circle skirt (Click for tutorial), long enough for it to be either halfway past the thigh, or to the kneecaps. It depends on which artwork you are referencing. I wanted to show off my legs, so I cut it to my thighs.
  6. Cut a line through the circle skirt (thick line by "back of dress" label). This is where the zipper will go. This is the same zipper from the back of the top. The zipper must continue from the top to the skirt.
  7. Sew the inside of the skirt (pink) to the pink line on the top. Don't forget about seam allowance (I forgot to draw it in the skirt).
  8. Install the zipper.
  9. Cut out the belt. It's around 2 yards. I can't remember what I used exactly, but it should go around your waist twice

Thanks a lot for sharing this! It helped me to make my Morgiana dress, even though I did some own adjustments!

The blue are darts. You take it in at the folded lines. This helps accomodate your chest. If your chest is small, you can skip it. The purple part is the zipper.

Hi I was wondering if you had any trouble sewing the zipper in between the top and skirt part?

No, I didn't.

The back of the top was cut into two, and then I sewed the skirt (cut at the zipper line--colors purple and black on the diagram) onto the top. After that, I sewed the zipper in.
