Thank you for your response! I have one more question! (If you don't mind answering). The way you covered your umbrella are you able to open and close it like a normal umbrella? (Should've asked it when I wrote my other one but, didn't think of it at the time!) My apologies! And thanks in advanced! :-)

I am able to open and close it, yes. That's also why I wanted to keep the plastic in, just in case I goofed up, at least I could still close the umbrella for storage. XD Make sure to pull the cover on tightly when you're attaching it. ^^
This came out very nice! Your description you left for covering the umbrella is quite helpful! (I plan on recovering an umbrella for a future cosplay of mine). Though, I'm alittle confused on one thing, did you just take some other fabric and cover over the plastic or did you remove the plastic completly and put the fabric on it? (I know you wrote in you description that you covered over it but, Idk, maybe I'm over thinking this and that's leading me to my confusion. xD) But, if you could answer this to clear up my confusion it would be much appreciated! :-)

Haha, no problem! I'll help clear it up. I ended up covering the plastic so that it maintained the shape without me having to add additional pieces, like extra steel wire or interfacing to keep the fabric stiff. And that allowed me to use the fabric I wanted too instead of sacrificing the look for a sports Nylon or something that looked wonky.
