I'm trying to put together a Sniper (Team fortress 2) cosplay for Comi-Con. Its about 80% finished but I have a problem with the vest. Partially because I'm lazy I decided to just try and find the right stuff already out there... and failed miserably. The vest is supposed to be dark brown with the top third a slightly lighter version (like so: http://tiny.cc/P3sdp
). The vest I got is a solid dark brown fleece. The pockets I'm not too worried about but I'm not sure what would be the best method to lighten the other third. I've been told that fleece wont bleach and that sewing a lighter fabric over it would be the rout to go but i'm not sure how i would get the correct pattern so that it will fit correctly. I'm also curious if there are any other ways of going about this that may be easier.
Thanks for the help
