More softparts!  ;D

I was trying to figure out how to make the Kama and came across LordNikon187's Stalker WIP and how he made his girth/loincloth, got me thinking... ...How about making a girth/kama...

...And so I took another old ruined, I mean... ...Er, "Pre-weathered" :laugh:... ...bedsheet and came up with this!  :P



I'm planning on putting a customizable pattern up in another WIP since I know alot of vode are looking for Kama patterns and figure it might help!  ;)

So... Opinions Pleeze???  ;D

I think it looks great, but it would benefit from a rear panel.  ;)

That kama looks good man. My personal opinion is that it would look better if you moved the two panels closer together at the back, to close the gap. Like Kelan I'm not a fan of the idea of adding a third panel. I think that would detract from it :) Keep up the good work!

Aye, methinks larger panels covering the back would look better! Still, looks awesome :D
I was wondering though, how did you do the girth belt? Is it just layered strips sewn together?

Thinking I may leave it as is... Once I built the back panels, kind of feels like I have a tail! LOL! :laugh:

Although Tracyn and/or Swift's Ideas may work!  ;D

I may do this... I would require that I relocate the belt & buckle out about an inch each and relocate the tabs that overlap in the middle to hide the holes from the rivets in the leather.  ???

The girth belt is made the same way I made my neck seal it is actually 1 piece of fabric sewn into a tube then ironed flat at the bottom edge, sewn down at 1 1/2", overlapped 1/2", ironed, sewn 1 1/2" up from bottom of fold, repeat, repeat, repeat...
kinda looks like this from the side if you fold the flaps up:

I will be putting a link to a separate WIP for the Girth/Kama combo on here once I have time to do it...  ;)

Still think it doesn't need a 3rd panel... But it's your kit.
