Unread post construction advice
Ive finished painting and dying the undershirt for my aayla costume. Right now the long sleeve shirt that I started with is still in its original form. Before i start cutting into it I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on if i should make the shirt attach to the vest. It seems to me that if they arent connected somehow that the undershirt will come "un-tucked"

My vest isnt leather so attaching snaps, velcro or just using body tape are all options. Im just not sure how i should proceed!

Any advice would be wonderful!

I put velcro on mine, but the vest is leather. That way I can wash the shirt without damaging the vest. I sewed pieces of the fuzzy sew-on type velcro at intervals around the base of the shirt, and attached pieces of industrial strength stick-on velcro (the hook side) to the same places around the bottom hem of the vest. It keeps everything in place very well.
