Progress report (Posted 13th May 2012)
Thus far progress has been good and quick.
Cloak has been completed. This has entailed patterning for the whole cloak, the hood, 'weathering' and the connecting tab on the neckline.
Weathering completed by making a 'snail trail' just below the raw edge of the fabric using PVA glue then cutting along it so it looks torn or ripped.
The roll neck top requires hemming and the tabs placing on the waistline seam.
The trousers need a snap fastener for the waist tab, and the bottom of the legs hemmed.
Gloves still need patterning, cutting and sewing but will be a quick job tomorrow. Hopefully will have this completed by lunchtime.
