two words. Jill Valentine.

I'm doing Jill Valentines super zombie butt kicking civvies outfit (meaning the blue tube top and mini skirt) and I wondered what fabric those of you had used. I mean, i have a blue tank top that woulda been perfect (had a shelf bra and everything) but I can't figure how I would make it work being that if I cut the straps off, i lose all support.

Could try clear plastic straps instead or some double sided tailor tape?

I didn't use a pattern for my Jill top, but I did have some issues finding a fabric the right color. I finally opted for one that was kind of shiny, but something stretchy would probably suffice better. However, a stiffer fabric works better when putting the buttons down the back, IMO.

As for the tank top, you might be able to work with it if you make sure you fit it really tight to your body after cutting off the straps. Then you'd get more support that way.

For mine, I used this matieral called feather leather. I really like the texture and the color I got for the tube top. For the bra, I bought a strapless bra at Fredericks for strong holding. It work's really well too. It may be expensive, but it's more support. For the mini skirt, it's simple for me really. I just used regular black fabric(it doesn't have to be leather), but for the lining like how she has it on her mini-skirt, I used bias tape. Just for the gray part on the bottom of the skirt, simple; just cut 2 inch width of fabric and lenght however the skirt is, and then just sew it on . This costume was very easy for me to make. I hope yours comes out good .
