Day 2 - Armor Sample

This is a sample of what the armor will look like when stitched to the base layer of fabric. I'm experimenting whether to sew down both sides of each strip to keep the edges from lifting up around curves, which keeps it looking very flat and two-dimensional, or sewing down the middle which lets the edges puff a bit giving the armor some dimension, but will also reveal the base layer underneath. I'm trying to avoid hand sewing it from the back (which is going to be a b*tch and a half), but it may come to that so I can have the best of both worlds: the edges stay down, but the tubes keep their puffiness. We'll see what happens when I order more of the sleeving and the bodysuit.
