Just looking to get an opinion on what people prefer for the shirt and pants fabric...

Option 1:


(Dark, Dark, Grey - Suit Fabric Material, Very light weight...)

Option 2:


(Thicker, more twill end fabric, this is a solid pitch black)


Also, Does anyone have any suggestions for patterns for the shirt? I currently have a McCalls - 4745, but I would have to modify it a little... Its the closest thing I could find...

Options, Opinions, Comments Welcome!

Thanks Smile


Update: Feb 23/2013

Just finished cutting out the pattern I bought for the shirt, Gonna start working on fixing it up so its more accurate/looks right!

I don't see to much difference in the two fabrics, but a gray shirt won't be accepted, so I'd say the second one is the way to go.

You definitely want to go with a true black color.
I used a bottom weight stretch poplin fabric from Joann's for the shirt
And the same in light grey for the lining of the bib.
You will have to draft a pattern yourself for the bib. But you could use a
Basic shirt pattern and then sew one side of the bib and use snaps for the other side.

For the pants I would suggest finding black riding pants almost like leggings.
We found a pair with suede patches at the knee and back pockets. I removed
The patches with no problem and took out the back pockets.
Much easier than making the pants.
