"Scorpion" Mando / WIP / Soft Parts
« on: Jul 26, 2015, 05:42 PM »
Finally started my "soft" parts.
Here is the vest cutout and chest pcs laiyout.



Here was the paper pattern layout test fit.
FYI.. The armor pieces are a little to big - had to cut down.

Girth Belt finalizing..
Just have some touch ups to make completed, ex. painting the brass grommets to look like weathered steel and maybe stitching or rivets at the leather-rope transition.

My wood dowel - hand carved "teeth" toggles.


Other stage pics.

Ok... I have been stalling on this part.  SEWING

Here is the beginning stages for the vest.


The process in stages:
NOTE: Please keep in mind... I have little to no experience in sewing, so if I am doing something incorrect (be gentle).

Here is the cord and sizes the materials stripes.


I made the decision to use spray adhesive to keep the cord in place while sewing.


Finished result.


Sewn the cord around the shoulder material.


Finished result.  (Probably should have ironed out the material before in started)

Tiny pictures....I went crosseyed for a minute there :)

I had been considering using teeth or claws as closures like that. Nice to see how they look in real life.
Very cool.

Thanks..

Tiny pictures?  You should be able to click on them to make bigger (Does this work? or no?)
Let me know about the clickable thumbnails; I actually cleaned up all my posts this way, but if it does not work with other connections, I'll change back.

It works, to a point.
Great progress, and I think I have those same Star Wars pants...  ;D

Turning wood dowel pins into teeth or claws.
Tools needed // Knife and Sandpaper
Note: knife blades are sharp - be more careful than me.
