Tunic WIP (Posted 23rd July 2014)
The tunic was given the dye/paint wash (in the previous post) and trimmed with hand-sewn faux fur. It has bias tape edging and pink suede thonging for additional detailing.
Sleeves are also lined with faux fur and need to be sewn to the tunic before having the large fake stitching added around the seam lines.
Faking texture on faux suede (Posted 20th July 2014)
Faking texture on faux suede with dye and a light wash of paint to give it a more realistic and 'natural' look.
Mittens (Posted 20th July 2014)
Here's a pair of faux sheepskin-lined mittens I made today. The suede is also fake and given a bit of texture and colour (blue for the underside of the mittens) and both are given additional stitching detail around the seams as in the reference. They are actually very comfortable and warm! (I might have to make myself a pair in the Winter!)
