Very nice draft.  Did you happen to see the armor Sabine's mother wears?  It's Mando but distinctly feminine as well.  My provide some additional inspiration.  See her at 1:42 - https://youtu.be/rWTKxDw675w

Hello all! Just popping in to say the holidays are very busy, but I'm currently figuring out how to sew dri-fit fabric without ripping it up. Someone said nylon and a loose stitch; anyone have experience here?

I plan on cranking out a flak vest before or during the next clan armor party in a week, and beginning the plate build! Gonna use the packing tape to body mold to pattern cut out to fiberglass technique for my chest piece, and sintra/pipe the rest of the plates. Hope everyone's holidays have been nice! I'm currently snowed in at my Ver'alor's, shaping and sanding the soon-to-be Sabine Westars I made last night. (I look very ill because I'm presently dying of the cold and latent Christmas tree allergies...)

Definitely gonna make one for my Mando, too. I love these things.

If dri-fit is anything like I recall it being, you'll probably want to invest in a walking foot for your machine. I recommend having one on hand regardless of what you're trying to sew, but that's just me being prepared lol :P

Dri-fit tends to pull apart because the feed dogs of the machine pull it under the presser foot but it's just loose enough of a weave that the presser foot prevents it from moving with the feed dogs (thus, it stretches and pulls apart). The walking foot grabs the fabric and feeds it into the machine at a constant rate, so nothing has a chance to pull and fray etc. See if you can find one made specifically by the manufacturer of your machine (Brother, Janome, Singer, Husqvarna etc) and stay away from generics. They're a worthwhile investment.

As for sewing the stuff, you can't go wrong with a small zigzag stitch (stitch width and length of about 2mm, if your machine measures stitch size in mm). The zigzag will allow it to stretch without popping, and I recommend going over the seams twice for reinforcement.
