Shirt - Made from ribbed cotton. Vertical
ribbing is the main body of the shirt while
the cap sleeves are made by using the
horizontal grain of the fabric. All edges of
the shirt are done with a decorative blanket
stitch. Bias tape backs the neckline and
interfacing lines the back collar to prevent
the fabric from stretching during sewing.
The mandarin collar is heavily interfaced
and made from a crepe fabric that fits
closely to the neck. Collar and hood fabric
are the same. Hood features a middle seam
that reaches the top of the head. Two darts
are on either side of this seam. Hood has a
front seam as seen in reference photos and
a layer of interfacing that gives it support.
Tabards - Made from a stretch tulle using
the full width of the fabric. One piece is a
straight sash that drapes across the body
while the other is cut into a loop. Loop
seam is hidden under the obi. Tabards are
stitched in place onto the obi.
Obi - Made from the same stretch tulle as
the tabards. Obi is backed with a suede to
give it structure and closes at the side
hidden by the belt.
Pants - Pants are made using a micro suede
that was backed with a scuba knit. This was
done to create a thicker fabric. Seams go
down the front and back of the legs and
have top stitching running down along
either side of the seam. Bottom hem is
hand stitched to the scuba knit so stitches
are not visible like the screen used pants.
Arm Wraps - Made from pigskin and backed
with cotton canvas. Each strip was cut and
glued to the canvas. The inner seam is
stitched 3/4 of the way down. Final strip is
left loose and is cut at an angle to wrap
around the wrist the rest of the way.
