Sigh, only marginally more progress made in another two and a half hours. I decided to just make a mockup out of a stretch knit and cut pieces off instead of flat-drafting. So far so good, except I don't think that'll translate that well to stretch pleather. And I'm making a final mockup out of a non-stretch pleather (not so much to use it as my final pattern, since I'd need to cut stretch pleather differently, but to see that it all lays right on me and I can actually make what I've mapped out with such a maerial).

Guh. I'm buying enough for a second attempt, that's for sure.
