In which I say “David” like a hundred times, I realise sometimes less is more when it comes to movie dialogue, and I read the script.
In which I reflect on 2012 as I celebrate the seven year anniversary of Prometheus.

This commission included making the shirt and altering the trousers. The shirt was a bit of a challenge because there aren’t a lot of clear reference photos, but I believe I have captured every detail faithfully. The “bib” is an unusual detail and a bit difficult to figure out, especially in regards to integrating it into the collar. The fabric was perfect, the right colour and weight, it was a soft cotton linen that wasn’t difficult to work with. Often linen is “shifty”. The trousers needed loop holes and pockets and a slight adjustment to the jodhpur flaps.

Detailed shots of the shirt
This was an order for six identical hoods and matching tabards for LARP. I was following the customer’s design template. I like working in production line style, it makes me feel more productive. Where as working on one garment at a time feels slower. The beauty of working on relatively simple garments like this is I can pay close attention to the finer details, like the bias trims, and almost every seam is flat felled. I was very aware that these items needed to withstand a bit of stress.
*More detailed photos to come.
