Sheep's soft parts
« on: Jan 28, 2016, 09:58 PM »
Been a while so I thought I'd actually do a thing and get this build moving.

Flak vest almost finished. I haven't installed the invisible zipper yet and one side is only basted closed because I wanted to be able to move the garment around better while deciding where to sew the magnet pockets on. Once those are all planned out and sewn on I'll sew the sides up for good. This vest differs slightly from my concept because at the last minute I decided to add the tan sides, which I ended up really liking and I am glad I opted for. I think overall it'll still look great with my concept and finished armor.

I was going to post a pic of the base-coated armor plates on the vest but they were being difficult with the tape and it was all being difficult at the time so I'll probably have more pics soon.

Yup that's purdy.

You're making me sad that I can't sew :(

Oh man, something is actually getting done. Here is my finished flight suit. I actually still need to hem the legs but I wasn't sure about going with these 'boots' so I haven't done that yet. Soon though. I might also add a snap in the collar so it stays put a little better. The whole thing was made of 97% cotton 3% spandex sateen for comfort. It is also two pieces, connecting in the middle with hidden snaps for easier bathroom breaks (hopefully because nothing is ever -that- easy in costume, let's face it haha). I used the rebelshaven tutorial as a guide for making my suit two pieces. Apologies for the terrible pics, the lighting in here isn't great at the moment. Feedback welcome! Enjoy!

Those sleeve pleats and the orange piping really set this off as a masterwork flightsuit. Your skill and effort definitely show through!

Thank you so much! I have been thinking about opening commissions for soft parts, most specifically for ladies since I heard a lot of mando  ladies have trouble finding decent soft parts.
