I must say that this 1967 Stretch and Sew pattern is just about the greatest pattern I've ever used. Four pieces. FOUR. Well, five if you add the turtle neck as I will. You also have an option of adding a ribbed knit collar should you so desire. I didn't have enough pattern paper so I traced the pattern onto parchment paper.
And then I ran out of parchment paper so I traced it onto some wax paper.
Yeah, it was a little jury rigged. Don't judge.
Next step was to round up all my reference photos and get a good last look.
Velco in the collar.
This costume is going up for auction in December. Starting bid? $4,000.
Quilted Triangle chest detail.
After that I rounded up my reference photos and discovered something that had somehow escaped me before. That gray bar on the sandman uniform doesn't go around the back. Glad I was able to figure that out. Less work for me!
Tonight is make the shirt and tunic night. Totally doable if I don't run into any mechanical problems. Yay!
