Alrighty, the troublesome shoulders...
I made a template that hopefully will be posted here soon. Traced four outlines, be sure to have them arranged as pictured

cut them out but don't cut the joined center where the tips of the shoulder connect

have the edges aligned. and be sure to glue the edges so they never come apart but remember it has to be able to flip inside out




Here it is starting to show itself when flipped. here you can also see the edges are not fully glued.... so add more glue  ;D

I am currently flattening this out... If this does not work.... A solution will be found

after putting a heavy book on the shoulder to flatten it. I put the cardboard template on it and shoved the piece int the vest. the shoulder is not glued in place. At this point, please let me know how the shoulder looks.
Thanks

Worse comes to worse, go sleeveless on the vest and attach the shoulder armor to the flight suit.

That's a good idea,

I'm REALLY hoping to have the shoulder on the vest, and to have this sorted before CONvergence con, if not I will definitely attach the shoulder bells to the flight suit. :)

not bad. they might be sticking strait out a little to much. just my opinion though.

The look a little stiff, and the lip where the shoulder and vest meet looks unprofessional. Sorry about the latest shoulder update vode

I'll see if I can sew this part, this piece is simple enough if I can get the machine to work...

For non sewn though, if glued  tidy and strongly, this concept is what would be done to make it look like a jango shoulder

Here is the vest nearly complete. The temporary shoulder zone will be folded under for a nice edge with the real shoulder piece attached under that

Looks good vode! The vest will look a lot better with the plates added on.

I can take some pictures, other than that progress has halted temporarily due to a hand injury, non-costume related...

Seems like a fairly clever way of doing it. My first vest was, no word of a lie, stapled together at the seams. Then I used some liquid stitch fabric glue for select parts.
