Hi ya Syahrin 

 

nice list...

With the fabric I would avoid dying if you could so the potty brown monks cloth would be the go. Depending on height 5 to 7 yards or Meters just depends on which country. You must wash before Cutting as it will shrink.

Black fabric a meter or yard is heaps. I tend to look at cut offs in the sale bin.

Tubing be carful as you don't get one that will crack over time.

About to head off so this was  quickie so to speak I will check in later if you need any thing else 

I do love lists !

Research: Bandolier (5 pouch).

 

1. Downloaded Studio Creation 5 pouch bandolier template. I tried to make sample of pouch in various type of material to get use of it.

Evolution of pouch:

Paper template>foam>leather (black colour). Now to source for brown leather material.

I though as alternative material for robe. As it require dye, i will mostly go with monk cloth with pre dyed potting soil brown.

1. Did a measurement for my wife and did a rough pattern design:

The pattern design is still in progress. Please comment. 

2. I tried to trace out the pattern and compare with the robe material. The material comes with 60" width. Taking into consideration of shrinkage and extra. I will need around 5 yards.

Nicely done :) Very impressed.

Mine is more hand drawn, it was a quickie quite a few years ago. 

With the slit around the neck, make sure you zig zag so no extra fraying and I used a clip to fasten it. 

With the hood I stopped the Antenna wire short from the ties, it helped sew the ties on. You can use the Zipper foot to sew the wire in, instead of threading it. 

I do love this Pattern :)
