1  Cosplay Jacket Help! in Costumes: Discussion and Questions by karmakannibal on: June 01, 2010 01:25:55 PM
Hello. It has been a while since I have been on this board. Maybe because I haven't sewn anything in a long time. But I've come to a dilemma. I need a jacket for June 11... which is not close, but not too far away. I have searched thrift stores and most don't have this jacket anymore..lame. Mainly because it's summer time. Smiley

It's from an anime blah blah, not too important. I was considering "twill" for the fabric, probably won't line it because it will be extremely hot and I don't want to kill myself.

Sorry for the horrible quality. It's really a "forest green" military style jacket adorned with some chains and little..flag thing. I've checked for it. Can't find.

I don't know a thing about making jackets so any kind of help would be nice. I have a hard time reading patterns as well.. Thanks. (And if you've seen a similar jacket somewhere, a gentle push in the right direction would be nice too!)

2  Prom Dress Questions! Urgent [prom is may 31]&pic fat! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by karmakannibal on: May 23, 2008 06:07:59 AM
Okay, I've stalled on this for tooo long ): I didn't think I was going to go to prom, but then it turns out I HAVE to, and I don't have a dress, nor 3409309393 dollars to buy one, so of course, this calls for Sewing!Girl (: Our favourite superhero evaar.


I found the dress I'd kind of envisioned in my head, and I THINK I should use duchess satin (fabric.com) but if anyone has a better idea(I've never made a prom dress before) I'm all ears.

I definitely need some help/pattern assistance on making a dress like this.


The theme is "masquerade", but I wanted to go for a "vintage,retro" look instead. I just don't have a clue as to how to go about making the dress, mainly because I'm a nooblet, but yeah.

Any help would be appreciated! (:

So would color help... I wanted black, but I don't want to see gothy or anything Sad   My skin tone is the same(just about) as the girl's in the picture, if you need to know that info for comparison. (:
