Sakura Kinomoto is the main character of Card Captor Sakura. To be honest, I've never watched the anime, although I've read episode summaries and visited a lot of Card Captor Sakura websites. So I do know a little about it.
I think the most amazing thing about this series is Sakura's best friend, Tomoyo Daidouji. Tomoyo loves making outfits for Sakura. So Sakura has a new battle costume in every episode! Tomoyo should be the goddess of all cosplayers! Sakura's outfits are all so cute! (All bow down to the greatness of CLAMP.)
I've resisted making any Card Captor Sakura costumes. The thing is, I'd want to make them all, but I'd never be able to keep up - not in this lifetime! But, as I was flipping through the Card Captor Sakura Illustrations Collection 2 artbook, I saw this picture of Sakura. Her pink and white pyjamas are just too cute. My resistance crumbled.
I justify this to myself by say that this isn't a real costume. After all, I need a new pair of pyjamas - they'll be very useful! ^_^
The pyjamas are made of pink and white cotton flannel. I started making this last fall. It's been sitting in my closet half-finished for months! So I finally took the time to finish it.
