So, B. asked if I’d make him a doublet like the one the male lead in Tangled wears.This one, in fact:
Seems easy, right? Go to Simplicity’s website, find their costume section and decide that http://www.simplicity.com/p-2089-men-costumes.aspx will do the job.
Um. Not so much. Because B plays what is commonly known as a ‘dodgy’, and therefore needs ALL the hidden pockets and features. So I’m currently making shit up as I go along, randomly making pockets and deciding they’ll totally work and being surprised when they actually do totally work, and embroidering a violently red hand on the back of the main fabric. It’s going to look AWESOME, even if the cap on the arm is called a flange. Who thought that was a good idea? Flange. Flannnnnge. It sounds dirty and ridiculous.
