Riza Hawkeye - Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood

In Progress


The FMA uniforms are seriously cool. I did once make a really quick Roy cosplay for a uni club night so I'm looking forward to having a second attempt. Decided on Riza because I can leave the jacket off and still be legit!

I have until July to find a plush husky :3

Skirt Finished

Cut out the skirt and picked a length for it between the knee and top of the boots. The split ends just below the crotch and is slightly angled so it will always hang with a space between. Edged with grey bias binding all the way round.

Skirt Pattern

I’m basing the skirt pattern on the top of the trouser pattern up to the front darts, but leaving out the side seams and keeping the back darts so it will lay flat until the hips. Made a copy of the altered pattern on paper and tested it out on some scrap fabric to work out the angle for the extended front and back edges.

Boot covers

All finished, with some elastic underneath so the boots can be swapped out for different covers.

Boot covers

Decided to get some short plain boots with a chunky sole so I can reuse them for other costumes. Making some pleather covers to extend them to calf length.

Back to the Trousers

Finally going back to this costume! I dug out what I'd done of the trousers so far and they could still fit me, so I've finished them off (I am so excited this pattern has pockets). Leaving the waistband for now as I want to sew the overskirt into the trousers.

Trouser Fly

Woo, second zip fly ever and it went perfectly! These have turned out to be super easy as long as I wasn't tempted to skip adding the big loose basting stitches that hold the fly in place whilst you sew the zip in.

Starting Trousers

I'm using the trouser pattern from Vogue 1132 as it hit all the key features: high waist, wide waistband, simple flat pockets and wide legs (I also really love the jacket in this pack). I'm using a dark blue cotton drill, which should make for a smart uniform. I was going for the darker Brotherhood shade over the royal blue of the original series and this was the closest I could get.
