Alrighty so I'm trying to complete my Talim cosplay from Soul Calibur 4 for Acen next weekend. I am however having issues making her underwear/bikini thing:
(best shot so far I can find of the back 8P )
I want it to be high cut like she wears in game, aka: the sides of the bottoms go up over your hip bones. I can't seem to find a pattern like that anywhere locally though, and I'm running out of time/funds so ordering online is no longer an option ):
I already tried making it once and screwed it all kinds of up. I think I have a better idea of the pattern though, so I sketched this up:
I'm just wondering three things: first, is this a decent pattern to go off of for that style? Second, would I need to add thin elastic to the seams? And third, I am using a swimsuit type material, very stretchy. Is this something I would need to measure myself then make the pattern slightly smaller to allow for stretching?
Any and all help appreciated, thank you!
