Antoa's fist Mando kit - softs - Completed!
« on: Oct 01, 2016, 10:44 PM »
Here is my original post for my concept

http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=121352.msg1636528#msg1636528

I made a trip to the fabric store today.  Here are my fabrics:



Red duck cloth for the vest. Purple poly/cotton for the sash belt, Kama and cape. Red cotton (unfortunately the poly/cotton was too orange) for the Kama lining.

I was also able to get a mock up done of my flack vest. I had a princess seam bodice pattern that I have used several times for my Irish Dance dresses. I just had to add in a bit of ease so that it would fit over my 'flight suit.'



Does everything look OK so far? Thanks!

The flight suit is some C9 Champion gear I picked up at Target.  The boots are booties I got on Amazon.

Everything looks very good so far.  I used a princess seam dress for my flak vests as well and it works great.

The only thing you'll want to keep in mind is that your shirt hem will need to be hidden. You can either hide it under belts and waist items, or tuck it into your pants. (I personally tuck mine into my pants just to be on the safe side).

I like your colors - that purple is really pretty.

Thanks! I will probably end up tucking my shirt in. I don't know if my sash belt will cover it when untucked.

It took me the better part of the day, but I got my vest 95% done. I still need to sew in the Velcro for the neck seal flap and I have to press the seam at the zipper to make it more invisible.

In the pictures it is laced up with some spare shoe laces I had - the actual laces will be black.

More sewing planned for this weekend!

In the mean time, here are some pics I took during the progress of my vest. Towards the end I forgot to take pictures.

I was able to get my sash belt, loin cloth and kama almost done. I still need to sew on the Velcro - everything is just pinned to the sash belt right now.



Excuse the duck butt in this picture - the kama will overlap in the back, but there was a pin in the way



I am going to add a purple panel behind the lacing in the back of the belt so you won't see the red if there is a gap.

Soft parts are looking good! Just a small little thing that I noticed, there's a champion logo at the bottom of the pants (visible in the picture where you're facing the side). Just make sure that's covered with spats or armor or tucked in and you should be good!

Thanks! The logo will definitely be gone or covered. I forgot to mention that.

***edit***
Hot steamy iron an a bit of picking and the logo is gone. Yay!

I was able to paint my loincloth today and sketch out the designs on my Kama with chalk.

The paint looks even better in person.

Thanks!

In addition to getting my armor started this weekend, I was able to finish up the painting on my kama. I just need to attach the Velcro for the pieces and I have to make my cape.

I've been busy with my armor since my softs are just about finished.

My gloves did arrive today though:



The only thing I have left to sew (and then paint) is my cape. It's all coming together!

Those look like some nice gloves. :) Any logos on the band, or did were you fortunate enough to find some gloves without a logo?
