Kama Pattern and kama fabric?
« on: Apr 22, 2016, 09:23 AM »
For my first question, does anyone have a pattern for a kama. Second question, what fabric is the best to use for a Kama or waist cape?

Kamas are pretty much whatever you'd like to do. For mine, I used two pieces of trapezoid duck cloth and then sewed them together like so:

I feel like it gives good movement. I used a duck canvas cloth to line and then a pleather for the outside.

I've seen others do kama's like captain Rex's Kama too.

A lot of people use duck canvas, leather/pleather, or other heavy materials. It's really up to you! :) hope that helps a little bit!

Thanks that helps a lot. I'm just really inept at anything that has to do with fabric  :P

My kama is a single trapezoid that has a cut roughly 3/5ths the way up the back. It's a single piece of duck cloth folded over on itself so there is a tunnel for a belt to run through.
