That's a fair point about the shirt blousing out - early 2000s graphics are such a delight to work with! With that in mind, those gloves like a good option.

Good luck with the trousers!

Been super busy, but! Pants are about 90% done!

(I have them on the hanger weird to show the stripes haha.) Just have to get the stripes sewn on. Hoping to get that machine sewn to be more durable but alas, if I have to hand stitch, then so be it. But that's tomorrow's project.
Meaning, this is what we have so far, loose threads and unintended strategic product placement and unpressed fabric and all:

Progress is looking great! Very Happy

And I'm hating that vest just looking at it. Those graphics! So happy I'm doing that. Wink

Oh man sorry guys been suuuuuuper busy around here, getting too close to finals now for comfort haha. But anyways! Decided to sew up my own gloves, the color on those amazon ones just weren't cutting it for me. So here's where I got to tonight--

Attaching an invisible zipper for ease of wearing, I need to hem at the ends of all the fingers and the bottom! But after this, I'm starting that vest. Wish me luck haha, but it's just modifying a pattern that came with the pants, so SHOULDN'T be too too bad.

So the gloves are pretty much done! Again, just loose thread cleanup and maybe some detail bits I'll want to do when it's nearing time to submit, but!


And the leather for the top belt just came in! Fabric for the jacket is slated for tomorrow, that's gonna be the fun part. Still have to make boot covers. But this is what we have to work with so far:


I'm trying to figure out what to do for the buckle though. Like I know Hobby Lobby has sheets of I think aluminum? And maybe resin over sintra for the back part? Or does it look like just metal embellishments over the leather/could I get away with that?

I'd suggest using matching brown thread for your gloves rather than black and to use an invisible zipper. Smile You'd get a much cleaner looking result that way.

Best of luck with the rest of it.

Considering the gauntlet part of the glove kinda fits a little tight? Gives me an excuse to redo it while I figure out the godforsaken vest 😂 I see about twenty mockups coming my way, mostly for those layered pieces at the top. Will post updates ASAP, considering the fabric is in.

Ideas for how to trim though, for the yellow edges? Bias tape, maybe?

I used bias tape for the edge detail Smile

Take your time with the jacket/vest. It’s a bit tricky!

Yeah, I'm also thinking bias tape.
Have fun with the mock ups! Laughing
