Assassin's creed Ottoman doctor help

Hello there ! I'm planning to make the Ottoman doctor outfit from Assassin's creed and I know pretty much how I'll make it, except the super duper awesome sleeves ! He has some diamonds shapes sewn together or I don't even know if it's sewn or not to be honest,

Ref. picture here : http://img3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb2...omanDoctor.png

I thought I could use the '' quilt method '', which consists of sewing several individual diamond shaped pieces of fabric together, here's how it looks like : http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-RcdgWOcKr1...0/100_1139.JPG, but I'm not totally sure about how it would turn out...

So if there's some experienced cosplayers in sewing, I'd like to have some of your advices, or ideas !

Thanks in advance, your help would be highly appreciated !

That is called piecing, and yes it is effective if you use a rotary cutter and a good quilting ruler (cutting perfect shapes by hand is a serious p.i.t.a.).

But an even easier method is to use applique. You will still cut red diamonds out, but instead of trying to do complicated math to make diamond fabric into the shape of your sleeve, you will simply apply the diamonds on top of a whole sleeve in white. This will allow you to trim some diamonds smaller than others so they are all diamonds all the way around instead of 1/2 diamonds at the seam.
This video is a super complicated applique, but this lady has a show on PBS and she is an EXCELLENT teacher, your diamonds will be a breeze in comparison
