PVC Help?
Post By sakuramiyabi. 03/11/09, 12:15 pm

Ok because I generally fail at my life. I have decided to attempt to make the clothes that Kyo wears in dir en grey's PV Yurameki (one of my all time favourites) because he looks like such a hot drag queen in it.

Only problem is I know nothing about PVC which his clothes seem to be made of. Opinions please?

Any advice on how to handle PVC? Or should I be using a completely fabric for this?

Any opinions and/or advice would be much appreciated <3

PVC is gorgeous. x3

Uh, there's nothing all that special you have to do to sew it. Be careful not to get a kind that'll delaminate easily, is my only advice? =D

It'll go through your machine easier with a walking foot, but that's about it. C:

@Rowan: Agreed, I should get one too. Spotlight has 20% off all machine feet at the moment too!

@Alena: It's a foot that literally walks on your fabric - it feeds thick or slippery fabrics much better than a normal foot.

JVCA, if you're getting yourself a walking foot, would you mind also buying me one as well? I can pay you back whenever - it's just that I don't think I'll have a ride to Spotlight anytime soon.

BTW, my machine should be the same model as yours, BM-2600.

Lol, I just went to look over at my machine to see if I could see the model number - then I remembered cosplay season is over, so it's away in the cupboard. xD I'm not sure when I'll be making it to spotlight (prolly not till next week or later coz of assignments) but sure! :)
