Alright so I might have accidentally made a second flight suit.  I say accidentally because it wasn't my intention to do so.  I was working on dialing in a pair of patterns for my riding gear and was testing them.  I had a bit of blue stretch twillish stuff that worked as a test fabric before I use the good stuff.  What I got after testing the patterns was a what can totally be a flight suit if I want it to be.  SO here it is.  Not sure what I think about the color though.  I may be too hot to wear here in Sunny FL.  Also as far as I can tell there are no rules about having a second flight suit in a different color?  As long as it's weathered appropriately right?

Decided that I needed a cape.  So I sat down and drafted a pattern for one.  I ended up making the neck hole a little too deep so I have a bit of extra fabric on the front.  It does tuck under my collar plate okay.  I thing I am going to try and use magnets to secure it in place.  The cape might be to heavy for that but if that is the case I'll just have to use snaps.





And without the bandolier...



And no that is not my flight suit.   ;)

I decided that I need two capes.  One a more traditional Boba style and obviously the other.  I wanted to make a shorted one because sometimes it is too hot to wear a long one.   SO here it is so far



I think I will attach both using snaps rather than magnets despite my aversion to them.  I think it will anchor them better under the collar plate.
