20th October 2013: Holster + Harness 1 Paper templates were made before covering craft foam with faux leather. I ended up making the gun holster, which isn't used, from scratch. Two large pouches were attached together.

26th September 2013: Waistcoat Progress Modified Simplicity 2895 pattern, as it has a collar part that I could alter.
Found an herringbone pattern fabric that was a good scale, not too large - this fabric has been used for the front two panels. Black polyester was used for the main back panel and the narrow back belt/buckle will be added later. The small faux pockets still need to be added on the front panel here.
