I would suggest that before you unpick the vest, mark the necessary points with a bright coloured thread to tack through in all the right places.

Good idea I was going to use chalk to mark it out.

That might work, however because of the quilting layers, you might find it easier to have tack stitches holding the points correctly.

Good luck

This is true. I have lots of changes sorted already so I have a bit more time than I thought. So I have lots of pretty colours threads so I think I'll do that. Thanks Chris I do appreciate the help.

Vicky, sounds like you've got the right attitude to this - the alterations will all help increase your costume's accuracy, so it's just a case of getting them done! As Chris said, you have two weeks, so don't worry if you can't keep making the adjustments at this speed. Communication with the costume judge is key; let them know if you feel you may struggle to meet the deadline. Hopefully everything will go smoothly, though! :thumbsup:

I think the spanner in the works is gonna be moving the casing up slightly since my pin tucks end straight after them and they appear to be a section on their own not quite sure what to do there.

Just a thought would I be able to essentially fold extra material under new casings to raise them closer to knees if I have s bit at the hem I can release and carry on pin tucks us 1in at bottom to keep length and 1in to fold to raise casings?

Ok... I've been thinking about your trousers... would it be possible to get a photo of the trousers and boots on at the same time please?

From memory, i seem to remember thinking that they were a little long. If that is really the case, it might be possible to use the casing work to shorten them on the standard fabric, which would also raise the pleated sections up slightly and position them correctly on your legs.

Back is quilted according to the pattern but since it was stitched some of the material is staying down and making it look wonkyer than it is. How do I fix this?Image

I believe you're collecting an iron soon. Spray the back of the vest with water and then place a clean tea towel over it. Then iron the yes towel.

I'm assuming put iron on lowest temp possible?

Yes. Basically the tea towel will provide the steam.... In fact make the tea towel damp beforehand.
