    I just started planning my first cosplay design and I have a pretty good idea of how to go about it, but my main issue is the detail. Can anyone help me how exactly to make a jacket from fabric? Thanks!

    I've made a lot of jackets, including Lie Ren and Nora's as well as personal work, and the process for each is very very different. It depends a lot on exactly what kind of jacket you want to make, what it's being made out of, how professional you want it to be (eg// will it be lined and interfaced, even if nobodys gonna see it?) What kind of detail does it have? What's your budget? Etc etc etc

    Ah thank you. The jacket I'm attempting to make is based off of the Japanese school uniform (doing a Josuke Higashikata Part 4 cosplay) with a kind of skirt like poof coat tails (I hope that makes sense). I want to make it out of a more solid fabric like suiting fabric and I do want to make it as professional and detailed as possible. I got time. I have a fairly flexible budget. What do you think. And thank you for your input ^.^
