How's it going? :D
Decided to cut out out the parts for Masamune Date's (battle) coat/vest thingy or whatever it's supposed to be. I did a prototype version earlier of the coat's upper part so I feel confident enough to cut the real fabric now.. or do I? -_- Oh well, here goes!
|Preparations.. all patterns are in a pile|
|Patterns pinned in place, ready to cut.. (back and spiky piece will be cut at the fold)|
|Front pieces cut out with the small tweak|
Oh, I only left seam allowances on the parts that will be.. well, sewed together somehow. I skipped them on most parts that will have the white trim running along the edges.
Here's an example:
|As you can see no seam allowances on the collar's upper half|
and the front part because there will be white trim..
|Pinning done collar pieces on fabric..|
|.. and after cutting the (second dose of) collar out I now had all pieces ready. YAY!|
|Pinned and ready for modifications...|
Except that the fabric rolled itself like hell I could see no damage done by the ironing. I could iron on top of the "right side" too. But I don't think I want to risk using the iron on any higher heat because this fabric sure isn't your usual denim.
That's it for today and tomorrow I will take the back piece with me to art class so that I can screen print the symbol on it!
