I know this might be a bit of an off question but i was hoping someone here can help.
Ive decided that this upcoming season I will be attending the local renaissance fair in full costume for the first time.
My costume tends more to the fantasy than historical but Im very excited about it.
Im going to be a ranger/archer and part of my costume will be a leather corset/underbust.
I wanted to make it myself but I was wondering if anyone could enlighten me as to either a- how much leather I will actually need and b- how hard is soft leather to work with??
I plan on using lambskin since its the softest.
any suggestions would be appreciated.
I already found a couple of ren fair forums but I figured it wouldnt hurt to ask here too.
