The fit test of the 2nd vinyl prototype went smashingly well.
The foot pocket fit like a dream.
The little areas of pattern that were modified from version 1 gave the desired result: still a super-tight fit, but bearable for the model. I was even able to grab my camera and take a few quick shots.
Every curve and contour from the heels of her boots to her shoulders was beautifully encased. Her hands were tight, but not "get me out right now" tight.The lower section just fit so well, I was very, very happy. This was my Christmas morning a bit early this year.
Here's a close-up of the front and side of the boot pocket. It's about as good as it gets.
I just had to mark some lines for the internal sleeves, and make some minor modifications at the shoulder to get the fit just right, and the job of the 2nd vinyl prototype was complete. I am ready now to go to real leather.
