I’ve seen a lot of interpretations of the leaf patterns on Garnet’s bodice, but I wanted to try to be as accurate as possible.  While I can’t claim this is 100%, it’s the best I could manage. Sumikins sent me some great reference art, but one can only zoom in so much and then the rest is sorta guesswork.  I’m pretty happy with the result though.  Now just gotta trace it on the bodice and start stitching. >o< And then there’s all around the top as well…
If anyone wants to use this for their own bodice, please go ahead, but it would be nice(not required or anything) if you could link back to this since it was a difficult bit of work to piece it together (plus i would love to see how others turn out!). Thanks! <3

So neat that you figured this out!!

So recently as some of you may know I had to figure out how to make these green arm wraps in the picture below

I wanted them to be one piece so that they wouldn’t have to be adjusted throughout the day if parts decided to slip, especially since the original plan was to…
