12th March 2010: ????? On Thursday I went to get the fabrics for this costume.
In the end the only navy blue that suited the image for the uniform was plain cotton drill.
It's always a safe choice. I also got the zip, bias, lining and thread I'll need for this. I was surprised that I stayed in budget too. I don't really want to spend more than 50 pounds on this costume, but then I noticed that I also need shoes that match. Oh well.
This weekend I'm doing the pattern cutting and possibly a sample for the trousers. :)
