So I've been in a "bust A$$ and get it done mode" recently. I took to sewing up my jumpsuit and dying it. So now I'm onto the vest.
If you would believe it, here in Santa Barbara, CA we have not 1 fabric store. I'm not positive on our local population numbers, but odds are that I'm not the only one in need of fabric...Moving on.
I'm looking at throwing a vest together and I have a pattern so no problem there but I wanted to know what has been most commonly used to give the vest that "puffy" look. Batting, foam, plaster of paris, employment applications? I was thinking of using a towel. I'm really really bummed about the fabric issue right now.... I'm using sheets. Yup, sheets to scratch this thing together. Beggers can't be choosers right?
On a side note, if anyone has a resource for somewhat screen accurate fabric, I'm looking so let me know. The current incarnation is really more of a test of my sewing ability anyway, and on the bright side, I don't have more than a few bucks invested right now sooo....
Thanks in advance,
