Hi. I've been wanting to make an exact copy of Saruman the Whites costume, but am finding it very hard to think up a design for it, simply because I can't figure out how it has been made. I've done a lot of research on it, and already understand a lot, but there are a few things, such as his over-robe which confuse me... One of the things is the flat piping which runs down the front and back - how was this made and atttatched? Also, how has the robe been made to flare out at the bottom? Has anyone else made this costume, or spent time studying it who could help, I would be really grateful if you would let me know. Or if you've noticed any detail on the costume which isn't that obvious which could help. Thankyou.
