Title: Sabine Wren (s2) soft parts question
Post by: spartafett on Oct 16, 2017, 05:20 PM
I wasn't sure if this belonged here or on the Q&A board.

I've been shamefully neglectful of my custom kit for a while, making only incremental progress, but then for my birthday I was surprised with the order receipt for a set of Sabine armor. So perhaps Sabine will help resurrect my other kit in time, but as for right now...SABINE!

Quick question though. I went on a fabric hunt the other day, but before I get sewing, I wanted some opinions on whether what I picked will be ok for acceptance in the groups. I've seen some variation on different Sabines, so I figured it was a little flexible, but then I saw a post saying app teams can be pretty strict, so better safe than sorry.

The black and gray are both nice weight knit cottons, but the gray has some variation in the threads. It's not terribly obvious. And the black is a more pure black than the picture. It has a weird red/gold cast to it from my lighting.

The khakis are what I'm more worried about. The lighter khaki is a knit similar to the black. The darker is more of a suiting fabric. It also has some variation, and I was also worried about that texture being ok.

I can't get a very good picture that accurately shows the colors, so here they are in a few light conditions, just to be obsessively thorough.

I personally think the fabrics all look great together, but I just want to be sure.

I know that AliyaJ was accepted with a bit of texture on the gray fabric as well. She is accepted both in the MMCC and the RL. If you really feel anxious, I definitely encourage reaching out to the App Team over Q&A or via pm. I did hear a rumor that they would be raising standards for newer canon Sabines.

Also! Please let me know how patterning and putting together the flightsuit goes. I've tried many times but failed repeatedly at making a flightsuit I was completely satisfied with.

Thanks. I'll go ahead and copy this to that board too and just turn this into a WIP thread for my soft parts. Hopefully I figure something out on the suit that'll help you some!
