I have been looking online and can not find directions for the white undershirt anywhere. What did you do?

Well basically my shirt is made out of some strecht-fabric. And because I'm kind of unable to work with that stuff right, it became a turtleneck shirt... o.O but I think it does the job ^^

I'm confused about the sleeves as well, I cut out the four halves of the sleeves, in the shape that it has on the pattern, but I can't work out how to sew them together, and which way they are meant to go.

Eressea-sama Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
oh, I see... Well, I guess it's my fault... :blush: For I made four pieces, becaus my sleves are doublesided, to put some shoulder pads between to have more male looking shoulders. I had that on mind, while making the pattern but I skipped that step when making the tutoriel, so ... sorry for that...
That means: one piece is one sleeve. If you sew it together, you will see that it fits to your shoulder, when you put the sewing up. ;)

Hi! I love your Link Costume, and the tutorial is great :D I'm trying to sew my own Link costume, but It is difficult.... Im really confused about the sleeves, I can see where the seam is and how it goes straight up on both sides, but it looks like at the top of the sleeve its sewn together, how do you do that?? O.o The collar is amazing too, im not sure i understand how to make that, but I will try my best!

First of all: Thank! :love:
Well, the sleves are really sewn on the top. - I know, it's some what confusing, but for me it worked! ^_^ just cut the paper pattern of a normal sleve in half and glue the two "out sides" together. Than you'll have the perfect pattern for a Sleve that is sewn on the top! ^^

Das Tutorial werd ich definitiv benutzen, einfach top! *__* Sieht total gut und dabei relativ einfach aus.. -noch nie genäht hat-
Eine Frage hab ich aber: 115cm sind ja irgendwie ziemlich lang für ein Oberteil, wie groß bist Du? Ich bin 1,63 und das Teil würde mir ja glatt bis sonstwo gehen, ich hab einige zu große Shirts und die sind ca. 70cm lang, meinst Du ich sollt mich eher danach richten oder passt das mit den 115 dann schon?
Wär super, wenn Du mir helfen könntest :3

:iconeressea-sama:
Eressea-sama Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Also, das muss natürlich keine 115 lang sein ;) Ich bin auch nicht sooooo groß, aber ich hab das untern doppelt umgesclagen, damit die Stickerei sich nicht verzieht. Außerdem hab ich nach dem zusammennächen rechts und links das ganze anprobiert und noch was abgeschnitten. Für deine Größe müssten aber 90-100 cm reichen. Wie gesagt, da ist die Naht unten schon mit eingerechnet ;)

:iconxsoma:
xSoma Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oaah, schnelle Antwort! Dann probier ich es mal mit 100, zur Not muss ich es halt noch weiter kürzen. Danke :)
Und: Wo hast Du den Netzstoff gekauft? Leinen hab ich schon gute auf ebay gefunden (werd aber vorher nochmal beim lokalen Laden fragen), aber vernünftigen Netzstoff irgendwie nicht. Und sowas gibt es bei uns im Laden sicherlich auch nicht..
Hach, ich freu mich schon voll darauf :D Ich wollt zwar eigentlich für die Abiwoche gar nicht so viel Aufwand betreiben, aber ich hab ja sonst nichts zu tun. Und vielleicht kann ich es ja hinterher einfach weiterverkaufen.

Also ich komm ja aus der Nähe von Köln, da hat jeder Stoffladen ne kleine Ecke mit Karnevallsstoffen. Das ist dann auch die Ecke wo ich den Netztstoff gefunden habe. Falls jetzt dein Laden sowas nicht hat, gibt es Netztstoff auch online zu kaufen. Z.B. hier: [link] aber wenn du im Netzt (^^) noch wietersuchst, findest du sicher noch mehr ;)

Question: Do you think linen would be the best fabric for Ocarina's Link? Or cotton?

The con is in summer time and I have't a clue which would be better, weather wise/authenticity wise. :idea:
Reply
:iconxsoma:
xSoma Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Maybe a bit late, but linen is very comfortable to wear in summmer, the material itself is a bit thicker, but as it's natural, it won't heat you up (like poyester for example) :>
Reply
:iconeressea-sama:
Eressea-sama Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I used linen, you know. For I thought it looks more authntc. But I gues some unstretchable cotton-pice would be good as well. Often linen is a bit thicker, so if the convention is in summer I think you should take the cotton ;)

But it also depends on the color. If you don't find the right color in cotton be flexible an take linen instead. ^_^

Hope I could help!

Your comment was very helpful, and I shall go with cotton, and perhaps linen when it gets colder.
