Re: Help Needed With Suit Extras
- It looks like a pretty straight-forward fitted tunic with a peplum to
me....have you looked at commercial patterns, like Vogue, for
something that is close, that you could adapt?
There's a livejournal group called, "fursuit", that may have
specific info, too.
- This is just my opinion, but from looking at the pic it looks less like a tunic with a peplum and more of a simple jacket (with muy muy trim down the front) that's is just cinched in at the waist with the belt, giving it the look of a peplum.
Now I'm not sure what the pattern numbers were, but I think I saw some jackets really similar to these in the Vogue pattern book I was pouring over this weekend at JoAnne Fabrics.
Anyways, if it was me, that is where I would start...checking out jacket patterns and diddling and altering them from there.
Good luck, looks fun :)

I have come up against a problem with my proposed Fursuit and the
"extra" things that I cannot seem to solve with the research that I
have been doing into it.
I am looking for some help in finding a pattern for the TUNIC ... in
the artwork for the suit that I am building. Someone suggested that
it is similar to 15th Century French Military uniforms, but I have
not been able to find anything similar while searching through the
library or the net. Hopefully someone here can give me a pointer to
something I can use.

- The skirt on the jacket can be drafted into the front or can be attached as a peplum.
Either way because the seam would be covered by the belt.
You will get better curves for a Women's cut man tailored suit if you make it as a peplum.
Your big problem will be making the suit front to ride smoothly over the breast.
Ambitious project, good luck.
