I had a 'sort of' jacket pattern for the Attack on Titan jacket. I used that. I made curved darts in the back for fitting and to make it look like a tailored coat. I made the tails by looking at pictures, because they are just curved flaps. I made the collar smaller, and crossed it over in front and added buttons. I made a VERY simple vest. The kind where you start with rectangles and cut big arm hole curves, a neck curve, a V and add buttons. I made a cravat (8 x 36 inch rectangle).
The pants are from his suit. The shirt is a regular shirt with the collar pressed up and tabs ironed into the front. The top hat and cane are things we have lying around. I didn't get a good picture because he just doesn't stand still for longer than 2 seconds.
What he had to say? 'I look GOOD'
What his friends said? 'Overkill much?'
I probably won't be back to this blog for a month. Robin and I are taking a 'girl's trip' soon, and until then I REALLY need to clean the sewing room. Last time I started to clean, I ended up down the rabbit hole of making a fantasy costume. Yes, it will burn down the stash, but it is making one hell of a mess in the process. And the holiday season is coming. That time when the sewing room has to fulfill it's purpose as 'guest bedroom'.
