After doing some poking around looking for various fabrics and materials to use, I decided to make a velvet cloak instead of a coat like the blue embroidered one.
Once I found the coordinating fabrics I sketched out a basic design. This will give me a rough estimate of how much of each material I will need.
Unfortunately, part of the order for this project got sent to the wrong city, gotta love the courier system in rural areas!
Sometimes shopping online for the best deals can be more hassle than it's worth, always remember to get a tracking number for large orders and don't be afraid to complain if your stuff goes walk-about. If they don't know there's a problem, they can't fix it for you.
