1  Making a [sort of] Complicated Vest...help s.v.p! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by Ali_oops on: February 28, 2007 01:59:23 PM

Im going to make the vest on the character above..but I havn't made somthing like this before.
Its going to be made of a pleather like material.

for starters Im clueless about the pattern? Im not sure how to make it, should I use a pattern from another vest the try to modify it? or make it from scratch? Normally when i sew I just wing it, but I dout i could do that with this project.

Also the huge belt buckles?
I highly dout Ill find some buckles that huge in a store, so Ill probally have to make them.
Any suggestions on what type of material or how I could make them? or even places to buy huge buckles  Undecided

oh one more thing. Do I need to get a larger/thicker sewing needle for my sewing machine to do pleather?

Im sorry for all the questions , to me this seems complicated and im noob.. so I would be soo thankful for any help at all.

2  Making a Bag/Belt, I need alot of help! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by Ali_oops on: February 28, 2007 01:43:41 PM
   Im making a bag from a video game (final fantasy III)
heres a picture
I have a few questions to ask about making it.

1. What material does it look like I should use? I was thinking maybe a pleather? and if I used a pleather like material...would my sewing machine take it (its quite old) or should I do it by hand?

2.about the belt buckel, its supposed to have a cross like image in it..any ideas on how to make it?

as for making the actual bag..Ill wing it, but any suggestions would be nice aswell.
