Compound Closures


With only a short bit of center front to work with, the window-cut cape requires a specialised and preferably invisible closing method, engaging in this execution a strong zipper; worked, hidden under the trimline, into the standing half of the cape’s majestic collar, plus a set of large scale hooks that brim the underside of the falling half and bring the construction to a seamless close while the zipper supports all of the cape’s weight.

Punctilious Seam


The final seam (center front) on the cape construction requires a mighty travail of handwork in preparation of the few minutes machine time needed to give a perfectly connected fabric, trim and lining after ironing.

Silver Slivering


Upholstering and old design with strings of metallic silver trim sewn precariously along the seams and edges through tiny hoop stitches that create a fresh, streamlined look to go well with cyber and armor style outfits.

Hidden Snappers

OpusRelinqueFinishing-2013-09-15-BTo comply with standards in the esthetic as well as the functional, the closing of the Battlesuit‘s leather flow-panels is worked into a two-layer mechanism.

After strategically sewing on decorated buttons with a nice industrial look to them, the yarn-tied knot on the leather’s wrong side becomes the placemark for a strong male press button, that can be sewn tight, invisibly, under the coverage of its right side shield. The underlying layer begets the female half of the fastener, allowing it to pop open under excessive force instead of wearing down or ripping under the weight of the material like a buttonhole would.

Furry Finish

Loops & buttons construction that fastens the furry chaps onto their lined inside.After the leg ins had their long pile seam allowances trimmed, folded inwards and fixed onto the fabric’s wrong side with a cross stitch, their insides were covered with a soft antistatic lining, strengthened to keep the angular shapes crisp, while fluid as not to interfere with fabrics or stockings worn underneath.

With mild elastics placed into the knee area forming a primary means of support, the furry coverings are geared in place through a simple loops and buttons fastening, allowing the leg-ins to be easily combined with many variations of garment- or underclothing-constructions that feature waisthigh belt-like straps.
