|Had to push this back for other stuff which ended up in a big confuddled mess anyway. In the mean time my mum found some fabric my gran bought, rest her soul, that is absolutely gorgeous and perfect for his tunic :D However...given the 7 bloody panels he wears... ¬.¬...damn flamboyant Italian men...plus the hood there simply wasn't enough. A trip down the local fabric shop yielded a much similar fabric but a few shades darks, so now Ezio will have contrast panels and it shall all be rather spangly.|
Also, during my rush to buy fabrics for Flora (last minute panic job) I found this loooooovely red fabric that has this embosed pattern almost like a brocade...so if I have my way that will be lining my panels =D
Not sure what I'm making my cape out of yet...
Shirt is made from crepe back satin, yes I know I use too much satin but I thought it had a sheen to it and I can't afford silk D: Damn stuff is £25/m and I can't afford that so...cheaper alternative XD Trimmed with bias binding and some looovely lace. The trim around the collar and the trim around the cuffs do match but one is more ribbon like and the other has a scallop trim. His cuffs also seemed to have a...hatched texture to them, found a cotton that had a bubbly sort of pattern that I think worked for this so there you go :D
Still need to find fabric for pants...there was some nice stuff in the shop but it was £15/m and concidering I'ma need a couple of metres this is too expensive, so shall be on the look out for alternatives.
Also hunting for the right colour leatherette as the brown I have is so dark it's almost black. I have a suedette in the right colour for boots and belt and such but they're not suedette...they're leather darn it OTL
Did debate doing Brotherhood Ezio instead, but tbh I prefer this design. Then again, there may be more exciting outfits waiting to be unlocked in Brotherhood :D Shall have to wait and see.
