Fabric shopping (Posted 5th November 2014)

Slowly starting up progress for Emil now. Today I went fabric shopping in Bristol! Brought cotton drill for the trousers, cotton for the bias on the tunic and black lining for the tunic and trousers.

I've been having a debate since I printed off some references yesterday as to whether Emil's tunic was royal blue or a purpley-blue. It printed out as blue but looks purpley-blue on my computer screen. I asked others as to what they saw it as but got divided replies! After I got back from Bristol I loaded up the game to see what it was on there: It was blue! Since the game IS the source material, I can't go wrong following it XD

Planning for once! (Posted 7th September 2014)

Yeah, I've not really made a start on this yet! ^^; I'm still getting used to my new job. But I think this will be how I work the strap system. I know usually I will make these things as workable as I can (in which I mean if it looks like it should be functional I will make it so it is) but in this case sadly I don't think it's possible!
