Blogging is a funny thing. Sometimes I feel like I don't know what to post, and other times, like this week, I've got tons. Anyway, I wanted to finish up the Renaissance Faire Costumes so we can move on to other things. Today I'll talk about the vest and tomorrow a bit about my experiences sewing with leather.
The final product.
Once I was finished doing all the putting together, Mr. Riley spent some time 'distressing' it. He rubbed it with both alcohol and acetone to get the shiny off. He used some sand paper to make it look more worn. The thing that ultimately did it, though, was putting it in the sand box sand and walking and jumping on it. It rubbed in the dirt, roughed it up and made it look more worn.
