Think I’ve addressed most of the critiques from my last shirt.
Shoulder seam is more forward, fit is closer and sleeve set ins are smooth.
Trying to figure out if I want to attach bib by snaps or partly sewn on.
Will try to attach photos here...

(Having trouble getting text to post, fingers crossed)

You might want to include a close up of belt with accessories only, but yes, they are. Smile

Got some feedback on my submission and I need to weather my belt, black paint was suggested.
Any ideas on what kind of paint would be effective on my metal buckle?

You look great! I used spray paint and then some light sanding to scuff up my belt buckle and expose the silver underneath.

I recently weathered a buckle for this costume for a friend. I used sand paper to scratch up the surface a bit, and then added matte black acrylic craft paint (the $2 a bottle stuff from Joanns.) I used a blunt paintbrush and a dry brush technique to get this look.

I did something similar.

I started with a silver buckle, then applied a light coat of gunmetal-grey paint, using a stiff metal barbecue brush, to create the weathered effect Razz
