Jesse's Soft Parts
« on: Aug 24, 2012, 04:22 PM »
Well, I finally get to start a soft parts thread! Yay! *chuckle*

Anyway, as you can see in my main WIP I got this set of scrubs for my flight suit. Comments and suggestions are most welcome. :)









Here's the link to my main thread. :) http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=47774.msg771686#new

You could really do with extending those sleeves.

Yes sir, I'm planning on it. I'm waiting until someone has time to take me to goodwill or something so I can find something to rip the sleeves off of.

If you could find the same scrub top in longsleves that would be EPIC. Easiest double sleeve ever.

More progress! :D

Ok, so I got hold of an old T-shirt and cut it up to use as a pattern for my vest as per this tutorial: http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=22566.0

I'll be using eyelets and lacing it down the sides.

I'm thinking vinyl, or something that looks like leather.

I did the tee shirt pattern trick for my latest vest.  While it worked out, it is somewhat difficult to use the tee shirt as the material is so giving.

I took an old shirt, cut it to fit, cut the extra side material so it was a snug fit, then cut the seams on top of the shoulders making a front & back.  While this worked with a bit of creative stitching, I think it would have been easier to fold the front & back in half the long way and cut them out on a piece of folded material; hence making right & left identical.

It looks like your off to an excellent start!  Keep it up.   ;)

Thanks Narseryc. :D

I may be coming to you for advice when I get further into the vest making process.

I went to JoAnn's the other day and got some fabric:

For the vest: It's some sort of pleather, and not as shiny in real life.



and for the sash thing to go under my belt.



and today, I got gloves:





and belt pouches:

I tried the t-shirt pattern. My mum suggested that I put it on to paper to make a template out of it. Then it got refined, and refined. And finally after four pattern attempts I got one that worked. Now despite the fact that it infuriated me, each step of the way, I will give you the same advice. Though the t-shirt may fit. Trace it onto some paper or cheap fabric, make a template from it to work from, refine it until the paper template fits then use your main material for you actual vest. It will take longer but will give you a better vest in the end. Just my two cents hope it helps and good luck with the build.

All right I think i'm following all your WIPs now!  :-X  :D

Gloves are awesome (I won't bother telling you you need to remove the logos cuz you undoubtably know that :laugh: ). Pouches are the best! Very simple and Mando-y!
Now you live in Texas correct? Well not to be the bummer but, I think, your gunna want a different material for your vest. Pleather doesn't really breath so, if Texas is as hot as the steriotype would have me believe, then your gunna cook. You'll probably want real leather or duckcloth. But I'm guessing you've thought this out correct?
