I like them all, for varieties sake, and have voted as such. However I'd quite like a "Bergen." Would be kool, military style wear is always welcomed from me.

Hmmm... When you say suspenders, those bracers aren't what I'm imagining. :P

Ooo, I quite like that version! I'd have to create a new description and material requirements for it, but if it is alright with you, I can incorporate that version into the original post as well!

I think they're referring to the ones that connect stockings to a girdle.

I think epaulets should contain gold.

I like them all, but agreed with Seko about the gold. Epaulettes should be fancy! :)

Ah! An oversight on my part. I definitely agree. Could do a silver variant as well! What would you suggest the material make up should be to include the gold?

Yes tang that would be great thank you! And yes I agree with gold an silver epaulets, any other metals that might be fun? For added variation?

Maybe gold could use cotton cloth/yarn and silver could use hemp cloth/yarn. That way more people could make them. By the way, which category? Scarves? Cloaks? I don't think we can have a new category just for two items.

I love them all, especially the epaulettes and agree that they should have gold or silver (maybe adding gold buttons would be too much?).

When I read "suspenders" I thought about sock garters. Which led me to search any suggestion of a garter belt.

Here's an attempt:

Garter belt: undergarment that fits around the waist and has several long, narrow satin straps that can be hooked onto the thigh high stockings to hold them up.
Category: underwear
Type: silk clothing
Time: 2 days
Resources: 150 grams of silk cloth
Tools: needle or bone needle
scissors or bronze scissors

I first thought about steel or brass for the hooks, but since the silk brassiere and the cotton bra have no metalic hooks I was unsure about this one.

The problem with that is you couldn't wear panties at the same time, so it would be really naughty. Maybe another category like belts would work better.

So true, Seko, didn't think about that. I guess it would work just fine as a belt since, after all, it's some kind of belt with laces hanging from it. It'd be noticeable even when clothed, but so are the stockings and anyway, in RL if you wear a tight fitting skirt it sometimes shows the bumps and ridges of the straps, so... for me you had a great idea labelling it as a belt :D

Loved them all :) . About the epaulettes, since they can work as an insignia of rank, how about adding a third one? The fabric-metal combinations could be silk-gold, cotton-silver and hemp-copper/iron/steel (I thought about bronze, but considering it's pretty hard to get, it wouldn't make sense for a low rank epaulette)

I would take " used as insignia of rank " out of the description of the epaulettes, though... I don't like too detailed descriptions, certainly if they push you into a certain RP thing.
