Back piece. Darts included for a better fit. The original pattern was too boxy at the back.
Trial and error for the best fit across the shoulders. This was a painstakingly week-long process. Attempt #1 was worked from the shoulder, but was inaccurate. Attempt #2 was worked from a cork board (as seen in the above and below photos).
Attempt #2 was severely difficult to work with and proved to me even more inaccurate as the shape of the shoulder was needed to get the correct fit. It was a very poor move on my behalf, a total time waster.
Trying again on the shoulder with the final cut lace-loop holders (as seen above and below)
Finally coming together and tying together as I go.
Applying a very diluted form of Powertex once more as it places a light film over the suede underside that stop the suede from shedding tiny fibres onto the skin.
For the next day or two I am working on contemporary wearables to get it out of the way. A post will form tomorrow most likely of the collection sketches and the finished youth of the future "hero" suit for SDES6761.
