Well, I've seen the general X-Men threads, and the discussions on costuming the uniforms in general... I've searched online for pictures, pondered intently, and come to some conclusions that I'd like some feedback on...
Here's some reference pics of her specific costume:
1) The costume looks like mainly leather, but with some 'vent pannels' that might be a more stretchable/breathable material...any ideas on what that might be? Specificaly along the arm top, around the shoulder pad, and down the side of the torso.
Then the hip and back diamond seems to be of some sort of ribbed material?
2) Leather is best, of course, for this costume. My machine can't sew leather though... a vinyl or pleather that's thin might work instead?
3) The Kwik Sew Pattern (3052
seems like a likely starting place. However, since the pattern is designed for major stretch fabric... I should do... what?
4) Any other advice for someone looking at attempting what will probably be her most difficult costume ever?
