I'm finally starting work on Hera's civilian outfit from S4 now that my S3 Hera is done! I started gathering materials way back in October. Razz This costume will be perfect for a couple of the really hot summer events!

I'm currently experimenting with a soft, black rayon for the pants. It is lightweight and cool to wear, plus I've had no trouble so far with achieving the baggy look the pants need. I drafted a pattern with no seam on the outside of the legs so the only visible outside seams will be the piped panelling once I add it in. Thinking about doing a basic elastic waist, but I'm not sure if it will be too bulky. The legs will be gathered into cuffs at the bottom, with maybe a velcro closure? They look super shapeless here because I'd just quickly stitched them together to figure out where the piping goes so the waist/cuffs aren't gathered yet, but you get the idea.

For the singlet top I bought a cheap t-shirt, a few sizes too big, in the right colour which I'm going to cut up and modify. If it doesn't work out I'll have to dye some fabric and make it from scratch. I'm thinking about making a stamp and using it with fabric paint to print the annoying circle pattern to save me hand painting the whole thing. I can't get the fabric professionally printed because of the cost. (the colour looks better in person)

One thing on the top I'm confused about though is the brown strip around the edge. Is it piping? Or is the edge bound? I originally thought it was piping because it looks raised in my reference pictures, but now I'm not sure. Any ideas?

I would say edge bound, as it looks a little raised but still flat. If that makes sense. lol it is an animated costume, so feel free to experiment as long as it looks right in the end. Smile

Xenadd made a great version of this costume which you can see here:

The t-shirt color looks right, justs be sure the circles don't stand out too much. Smile

Good luck!

Lol that's the problem with animated costumes, everything's up to personal interpretation. I'll give both a go and see what happens. Smile

Thank you for your help! I'll check out Xenadd's version Smile

I used a stencil I made for Aunt Beru's collar - it was a lot quicker than using a stamp so you might consider that for the circle thingy.
