Ah comic book style drawing! <G> Looks pretty on the page, issues in 3D
>>My concern is the flaps coming from the bottom of thecircle cut-out are just going to hang awry rather than
laying nice and flat and defining the circle.
My vote is for a fabric with a stiff hand, interline, and then bag
line. To keep the circle really crisp, interface the lining with medium
weight. I recommend the interlining (maybe canvas or a stiff ish muslin
because it will give body to everything and help hide where the
interfacing stops. (The only way I'd think it's OK to skip the
interlining would be if you were using something like a heavy stiff taffeta.
OK... and now the thousand dollar question... what are you planning to
do in the back. You need to be able to walk in this... and since it's
important to the costume to keep the key hole/circle stable... you want
the front to stay smooth when you walk... and not have the fabric pull.
If you have no pic for the back... 3 options... 1, slit the back to the
knees; 2, give it some kind of a petal wrap treatment so the back opens
up as you walk; 3, gather/gore in the back (I almost see a tad bit of
train) since we're dealing with a very stiff fabric.
