22nd November 2010: Pattern and agiles and other things. Well I have still yet to source a pattern for this. I'm trying to think of many different ways to do it. I haven't tried the denim catsuit pattern idea yet but will hopefully be getting round to that some time after Xmas. Need to start by unstitching the entire thing and then working on the pieces I want/need.
I have found some awesome agiels for sale on ebay. They make them unpainted for $55 and $4.50 for the brass chain instead of a standard chain. Its a fair price but I've yet to come up with an idea on how to make them myself at the moment so this is definitely a back up plan. Once I get them all I will have to do is spray them the right red colour and then laquer them.
The boots I got at amazing and I love them but they are so tight on my calves, stupid years of horse riding has given me far too much muscle so the likelihood of getting the catsuit under them is looking highly unlikey. I'm wondering if I can find a way to remove the zip, add a panel of leatherette and the have them lace up the size instead which may help the tightness and catsuit issue. Am terribly worried about ruining them though at the same time as they are an amazing pair of boots.
