Just finished a "feminine" cuben rain kilt. Holy cow, I was TERRIFIED to cut into the stuff before I started... but I read up on BPL'ers' tips and techniques (thank you to all who have shared theirs on the forum!) -- and surprisingly, as one person said, it's a very easy fabric to work with. So if you're thinking about trying some cuben, do it!
I think it turned out quite well. Materials from ZPacks, except the grosgrain ribbon (from my local sewing store).
Thinner needle (I only had a #10, so that's what I used)
Larger stitch length
Gutermann all-purpose thread
3-step process: made a paper pattern, then a "test garment", then the actual garment
I stitched, then taped (HUGELY controversial, I know...)
Cut cuben on a self-healing mat with a razor blade.
