All the gold trim was specially made out of a gold stretch vinyl I bought on fabric.com when it was being discontinued! So, I can’t point you directly to what I used, but any stretch vinyl would probably be similar. It’s very light-weight and stretches in one direction so it’s good for making custom trim out of!
Thank you! I tried putting the tricky part through my machine, but it was giving me a hard time, so I opted to handsew instead, which was quite painful, hahah.
I used Heat-N-Bond and interfacing to help shiffen the vinyl of the skirt. The Heat-N-Bond in and of itself adds some stiffness, and the thick interfacing helps as well. I had actually planned at first on using craft foam in those parts, but this seemed to work just as well! It’s quite stiff but still folds and moves with the body. The vinyl by itself behaves like a few layers of denim, about, so it definitely needed something to made it more “armor-like” :D
