"Red Guy" has been getting a lot of chatter lately, so here it is!
Updated: Halloween 2011. Lantern party! Next year gents I'm makin all the outfits!
The shoulder accent pieces.
Making a nice even placement on the sleeves. I love drawing with chalk!
Adding the red accents to the body and back. I wanted the long red pieces to be in one piece, so I stitched the shoulder seams together, then sewed the red pieces into place. Then I got carried away finishing this thing and didn't take anymore wip pics.
I like this design a lot. I particularly like the black and red 'belt'. The zipper on the side is always a challenge, but I do think it looks cool.
Trick for asymmetrical garments, I put a button on the inside of the shoulder seam, and an elastic loop to help hold the garment in place.
