Our propmaster is finishing these out faster than I can sew a jacket.
My sewing machine wasn’t ready for this.
Neither was my iron.
Sad news, everyone. :(
As it turns out, I cannot print multiple large copies on my campus. and that the plotter uses are limited to a few teachers who would not approve of my abuse.
So for now, patterns are delayed. But take heart, I’m speaking to some who owns a pattern printing company, and I’ve heard rumor of a possible pay-per-hour printing station at the nearby Cal Mart. Depending on the price of printing and demand that price may change, but I’m doing my best to keep it low.
Alternatively, I can offer huge pdf files for people to download and print at your own leisure… but I don’t quite relish the idea of taping 30+ sheets of paper together for this, and printing at kinkos would probably cost more than the pattern and fabric itself.
I’m digitizing the patterns as we speak, with sizes 2- 12 as promised, although I don’t predict finishing until next week. Digitizing a pattern doesn’t take long, but the scan is imperfect and takes eons to fix. D:
I’m sorry to everyone who is disappointed (I am too). But I’ll find a solution to this. My ego says the pattern is too nice to waste.
And obligatory FIDM finals I want to slowly scoop my brain out through my nose, Egypt-style.
It’s done! The complete hard copy of the AoT/SnK jacket pattern (for ladies). These will be scanned and graded by Wednesday at the latest. I’ll take photos of the sample tomorrow. The final pattern is made of 21 pieces.
I’m pretty proud of it, and I do believe that’s as accurate as it can be. I’ve never been so pumped up for Anime Expo!
For those who wonder why I make distinctions between male and female jackets when everyone in Titan wears the same thing; someone who is built like linebacker Reiner is going to need a different proportioned jacket than someone who’s built like petite Christa. Simple as that. :3
$20 on Wednesday will save you the headache of modifying an existing pattern, altering a found jacket. I can promise that as long as you have basic sewing abilities, this jacket is pretty much a breeze. And I’m so glad I’m putting my skills to work.
Attack on Titan/Shingeki No Kyojin Jacket Pattern
Hi! I was just curious about how far you’ve gotten in your AOT jacket patterns? Or when it would be done? ovo My friend and I can’t find goods ones anywhere, but we really like yours, and would love to buy the pattern after it’s done.
I had to retype this because somehow I submitted a long-winded, complete answer and my cell phone ate it. ‘OTL But I’m really glad you like the pattern! It’s pretty much as accurate as I could make it.
My AoT/SnK jacket pattern (for ladies) is done! I can have them prepped and ready to print by Wednesday (5/12) at the latest, which gives me time to sew the final sample. I will take photos of the sample printing and start taking orders after that. The pattern is $20 shipped within the USA.
The pattern will have the jackets sized 2 - 12, and I will post general instructions on how to sew it online. It will come with a fabric sample of what I am using for my own jackets.
I can only take orders until the next Tuesday (5/18). My last day of printing access is Wednesday (5/19) so the pattern won’t be available until my classes resume after Anime Expo. They’ll be shipped out on Thursday (5/20) so you should receive them fairly quickly if you’re in the USA.
I don’t really expect this to happen, but if I end up receiving too many orders, I will limit the number of prints I can sell at the moment and search for a professional printer instead.
If just 4 people buy this, I’ll be able to buy myself an Anime Expo badge. c:
Your lolita/fashion programming will resume shortly.
Testing the first pattern draft of Titan’s uniform jacket for the ladies. It’s damaged cotton twill I kept around just for this! This is extremely basic shell; no cuffs, no facing, no pockets, no undercollar, and it was drafted from my size 4 sloper.
Front and sleeves still need work, collar needs to be adjusted so it won’t crash with the lapels. And my draft needs to be shortened quite a bit.
I found a set of men’s standard measurements so the boys will get their turn later.
I forgot the epaulets (and the top stitching).
Self-reference so I don’t have to fumble with 30 different references. Will also be a handy reference for anyone else, just replace the patches with the legion of your choice. It’s proportionally accurate and the stitch lines should be self-explanatory.
When the draft is done it should actually be very simple to make! They’re made for people who drop like flies, so they aren’t complicated and woe to person who thinks it’s made of pleather/leather.
The official Cospa jackets don’t even have lapels. It’s atrocious.
Not quite finished yet.
I’m a bit torn on the flowers but I couldn’t recreate roses successfully. :c
