Naruto: Uchiha Itachi / Kisame robes
I need help on breaking down the robes that Itachi and Kisame wear. I think I can get a pattern from a friend, but I need to know what materials to use. They say not to use satin, to use something really stiff that can hold the shape of the robe and not wrinkle or fold much. But most of that kind of material is fake and therefore hot... X_x
Does anyone have fabric reccommendations?
And what about the patterns on the fabric? I know fabric paint would be much easier to do, but has anyone tried alternate methods? I thought perhaps cutting out and hemming pieces of like fabric and then sewing them onto the black fabric would look good, if not be an insane amount of work.
