Default Re: The Official Bane Costume Thread - Part 4

Hi, I'm lurking because I'm MJStephens' Mrs. and I'm hunting for vest tips. He's pressed for time and I'm about to start helping with his project.

Here's my specific question: On the front of the vest, in the central "armor part", the leathery shape-on the movie costume, the edges of it are a bit recessed. For anyone who has made the vest, have you been able to accomplish that recess by quilting? I'm pretty sure the vest is going to use up my batting stash, but the hubs is thinking about maybe not putting batting in the armored part of the vest.

I would appreciate anyone's feedback, and I would especially appreciate the thoughts of a tailor or professional costumer.

Hey, a girl can dream.
