(ugly face  :-\)

Don't say that! :(

Happy to see this is picking back up! But now I've gotta get in gear myself :rolleyes:

Again, well done! It's a much better form than mine was! :P

Good to see you back Jesse! Tape form is something I keep finding I need to make my life easier. Looking solid, keep the momentum going ;)

It's been a trying day....



But I've made progress. ;D (I Think)

As rather clumsy pattern altering goes, I think it came out ok. It's not as wonky as it looks in the pictures (I just didn't pin it to the mannequin very well), and the only thing that really bugs me is the collar, but that will be over a dark flightsuit and neck seal, and under a collar plate, so I think it will wind up being ok.

It's going to lace down the sides (impractical, I know, but I think it'll look cool  :P). I've got the eyelets and the laces, and I'll hopefully be putting those in tomorrow after watching a lot more video tutorials.  :-X

I'll also be hemming the bottom so it'll look more finished and it won't be quite so long. I just figured I'd better take a break before I came out with a monstrosity instead of something that resembles flak vest.   :laugh: :laugh:

DAMN you did a really good job! 4 flakvests down the line for me and I can do nothing that nice....and is that hand sewn? :o

Like I'm legitly impressed that looks like a commissioned Jango vest tailored for femmandos :o

Shaping and darting llooks spot on, I really like how you did the edges on the shoulder flaps too...and the collar isn't that bad, something cool you could try is making a republic commando inspired neckseal to go there, I think it'd look great and tie in with your backstory if your sticking with cuy'val-dar/clone associated....

I was curious about the square collar as well, but you're right one you get a collar plate on no one will be able to notice :) You really are close, I'm excited to see it all on you! :D

Yeah...



This is the pattern I used (so I didn't have to do everything from scratch), and obviously I had to raise the collar quite a bit. Unfortunately, in the effort to not the make the neck hole so small I couldn't get my head through it, I made it too square.  >:( But, yeah, I don't think it will matter in the long run.

great looking vest Jesse! If you're having an issue getting your head in, might I suggest what I did for my vod'ika and put a velcro flap or zipper closure along one of the shoulder seams? it really helps and that way you won't get the material pulling or risk popping the seams after a while of forcing your head through the vest.

Good idea, Kalyn. I might just do that. ;D

also, Neck Seal, anyone?

Yeah, it's got velcro strips in the back that hold it shut.

*drum roll*

Tada:





(I did put it on, but I'll have to remember to post the pictures  :P)

I had to get creative and punch the holes with this thing:



I also did some work on my kama:



The patches will be weathered to be less brightly colored. I promise. :rolleyes: And that big one is not pink :laugh: It's kind of a peach color

Damn vod that looks great!
My one critique is the patches don't really look right on it...
