Me and my boyfriend made this together last year. I made hime a tunic and than we cut out th arm and leg cuffs and skirt in a faux leather. Finally I sewed on multiple buttons to get an armoured look. It was relatively easy to make but hard to sew with faux leather.

Material Notes

Faux leather and knit.

    No I didn’t due the dress. I purchased it at Zellers (target in the US). I did not have enough time to make the dress. I think if you wanted to make a similar dress it would be pretty easy, it had long flowing pieces with an elastic waistband.
