Haha, I didn’t know what to refer to it as. An underbust…ehh..? My mother and friend referred to it as a belt. Basically, I traced the bottom half of a vest pattern for this. Came out alright. I got the idea while I was looking for images of this cartoon show I watch called Ergo Proxy. I found an image of a girl dressing up as the main character named Re-L [I must add she looked almost just like her]. The main character wears a sort of underbust vest thing and I got this idea because her underbust vest sort of looked like this when she wears her vest.
Sorry for the lame pictures. I left my camera on the wrong mode.I’ll try uploading a pattern, because I actually had to alter the vest pattern a great deal.
