Katniss Pants

Argh, this is driving me nuts...


I've been scouring the net looking for pictures. I'm pretty confident I have enough pics to make the jacket and shirt, but I have pants fabric NOW, but not enough info. I haven't been able to see the waistband or pockets, if any pockets exist. I know I don't NEED any of this for the premiere, but I'm itching to get started on it. I kinda hope she does have pockets, just so I have places to store stuff. Guess I'll have to wait for the movie to come out so I can properly see. And if it's obscured in the movie, I can make them how I want.

Now the exact pattern on her pants is hard to find. It has to be some kind of pant weight fabric, probably a denim or twill. I made a graphic on the pattern on this pic. Click for full size so it's not all distorted:


I got THIS fabric online:


I think it will at least create a similar illusion and if I ever come across something better, I can always remake it. I at least hope I can find a nice faux leather for the jacket. That project should be... interesting...

  1. Hmm...Found something a teensy bit closer, with similar coloring:

  2. I vote that the pants have pockets, because goodness knows Katniss is a girl who needs pockets. So if the movie costumers put her in pants without pockets, then I say THEY are the ones who are wrong =D

  3. @ElvishTard: There was one of those in there I really liked and emailed them about, but they never responded... it says 'dress weight' so I wasn't sure how well it would work for pants (this company has always been a problem for me was far as customer service goes)

    @Ally: I agree! A girl needs places to put stuff!
