Finished Rey’s pants! … mostly. I need to serge the inside cuffs and make the detachable ties for the cuffs. Because my silk twill was somewhat sheer, I lined the pants in white poly. I also didn’t use a casing for the elastic waist, I sewed it in to keep it from bunching.
The next few photosets will probably be a handful of collections of shots of Dorian armors that I mainly took for reference while working on my crafting mods. Not all of them are suitable for sharing since I do a lot of close-ups of individual outfit parts to examine them and test them for color / texture / pattern / composition / etc, but some, like these, I feel are okay enough to post on their own.
IIRC this one was Silk, Avvar Twill, and Bear or Great Bear Hide.
