Lloyd Progress (Posted 22nd July 2010)
Today has been a good day for Symphonia progress.
I have bracers for Lloyd currently being sent to me, so they should arrive in the next couple of days and I was able to make the trousers. :D
Now I need to find brown belts and some scabbards to customise.
RAGE (Posted 28th June 2010)
Currently very pissed off with this coat because its just... rage worthy! I've never made men's clothes before and don't intend to again after this.
I'm actually looking into the getting this commissioned, because I want it to be a WEARABLE gift for my boyfriend; and the way mine is turning out, he won't be able to get the damn thing on. >_<
Mock Up (Posted 27th June 2010)
Today was mock up day. I made a mock up of Lloyds jacket ou of red poly cotton to see if the pattern I had would work.
It does work, it just needs a little bit of poking to make it accurate to the front panelling.
As the poly isn't stretchy I'll be using the mock up as a referance, and making the actual item out of a stretchier material, probably some kind of jersey or 2-way stretch suiting.
