My first commission for the LARP! (If you have no idea what this is, please see my previous post.) A friend and member of the LARP needed a costume for the first event Feb 18. Since his character is a northern barbarian, he wanted a vest with a fur collar. I found some fun fur and a really soft material that looks a little like animal skin.
My pattern and materials: $77 (fun fur is very expensive)
Vest pattern pieces:
Cutting out the vest: This material made a huge mess which stubbornly stuck to everything due to the static in my basement. I had to break out the hand-vac to clean it all up.
The lining: Also staticy, but no mess.
Both the lining and vest were sewn together at the shoulders then sewn together at the arms:
After adding the fur collar (promise better picture next time I work with the fur) the lining and vest were sewn together at the collar and down the front:
The fur collar seen on the vest partially turned out:
Fully turned out:
Completed vest! It’s so soft!
Total cost: $77 for materials + $53 for 7 hours work = $130
