question for pattern for coveralls
« on: Dec 02, 2012, 11:53 PM »
I found this pattern by Green Pepper. I figure the shoulder parts could easly be turned into shortsleves. Will this pattern be acceptable?

Yes you can use it, but why do you want short sleeves?. If you don't have big powerful arms, then i would advise against shortsleeves.

Looking at Boba and Jengo Fett's jump suits. They have a Short Sleeve over the long sleeve. Why? Only the costume gods know.  :D

I think you misunderstood me. With your comment about shortsleeves i assumed you meant you wanted bare arms.

As for the outersleeve, it was designed as a way to hide the cables and hoses from the gauntlets, so they weren't just hanging out and going to nothing.  ;)

Sorry, I did not make myself clear on the "Short Sleeve" comment. I figure that pattern had a little shoulder flare thingy that could easily be turned into the outer sleeve. 

From a practicallity asspect, that outer sleeve holding the hoses close to the arm would keep them from getting cought up on other things.

Vor'e!

also, the short sleeves added a secondary layer of protection to the notoriously weak shoulder/armpit area that is usually a chink in armors everywhere. -also why the seam runs along the bicep as opposed to under the arm, where a nice spike jab might slip through the stitching.

Thanks for pointing out the seem difference between the out and inner sleeve. I would have missed that.

My first flight suit was a pair of short sleeved coveralls which I then sewn cut sleeves from a long sleeved shirt.  I had sewn them inside at the shoulder so they  gave me the double sleeved look like boba.
