@Liliana: Gosh! You're attempting Ashe's wedding dress! That's insane! I wish you luck!
On penelo, I am still debating with either using leather, pleather or vinyl. Leather I know is going to be heavy but has that awsome look to it. Vinyl is lighter and easier to sew (for me) but just doesn't have that look and pleather is a little bit of both. Arghhhh! What do you think? Here's a reference for those who don't know who she is link
hope that works...I am terriblwe with links
