I've had a sub-dyed batsuit for a while now, but I don't think it's what I want in my costume. I have purchased the following material (http://www.rockywoods.com/Fabrics-Kits/Other-Heavy-Durable-Fabrics/Diamond-embossed-heavy-vinyl-fabric-with-cotton-rayon-backing) which has a 3d look and feel that I hope will bring my Arkham Batman to life. This vinyl has zero stretch which is making it difficult for me to plan my patterning out.
I have only a couple goals for my costome, the zipper will be in a location (probably the side) where I can dress myself and the shirt and pants are seperate.
I've debated a few things, but i've pretty much narrowed it down to I like the look of my leather jacket, why don't I pattern it after that. Does anyone know if there are any leather jacket patterns out there? I've gone to the Hancock Fabrics and online stores, but men's patterns seem to be very limited in the jacket area unless it's a suit jacket. Worst case I'll cannibalize a thift store jacket or two but I figured I'd check anyway.
