    All PMs sent. The MacFett sounds like fun! As a quick update, I started doing my vests a little different, adding a few seams here and there:

    Don't mind the threads, this one is getting boxed up and out today.
    And as always, I ship worldwide

    Soft parts arrived today and like so many before me I was blown away. Thank you Carole, I was expecting good stuff after reading all the support you have here but to actually have it in hand...wow ...just wow!! Top notch second to none work and if anyone is considering taking the plunge just go for it - you will not be disappointed

    The quality of these soft parts looks amazing from the photos, and the work(wo)manship sounds amazing from the rave reviews! I'm just beginning this adventure, and my goal is to be 501st approved. I'm assuming the fabrics beings used are approved, but there is specific stitching requirements for 501st approval at certain levels, are these soft parts accurate to that level? From what I can see, yes...?

    @Boochman. Death proof here was just recently approved at the infamous level with the 501st with a ROTJ costume. Not an issue on the stitching.

    been lurking on this forum off and on for couple of years and came across this thread(read all 18 pgs.), the quality and praise look superb and I am now (finally)hoping to build my whole suit. Currently working on scratchbuilt helmet from wizardofflight plans, and rounded up some Sintra for the armor,which have been on back burner for while.
    Arkady would love to talk with you abou t ordering all soft parts(pricelists) for ROTJ suit .

    Thx

    thanks for all the info on stitching and approvals everyone! I assumed these awesome soft goods were "good to go", but wanted to ask just incase another noob like myself had the same question. I guess that's my way of justifying all of my silly questions, haha! PM incoming!!!

    That's great to hear about Death proof's suit!
    I am always open to changing things if there is photographic evidence for it. For example, I was recently checking out the dressing a bounty hunter pictorial and realized that I have been placing my ankle straps on the inside of the ankle when in the pictures they are on the outside of the ankle. So now I'm doing them on the outside. So please, if anyone has one of my suits and something isn't exactly right, I would love to hear about it.

    Thanks for the quick response!

    Quick question on the difference in "wearability" of the satin vs twill: which ends up being more "troopable"? Does the satin stay cooler, or dissipate sweat better?

    I'm not sure what the current jetpack harness vest is made of (some sort of cotton), but holy crap does it ever hold sweat - EW

    bzb, both the satin and the twill are on the outside, the vest is lined with a cotton. I think if you are trooping in a hot climate, there is going to be sweat

    I'm sorry, I can't control sweat Isn't that under armor stuff supposed to wick sweat or some such thing?

    I have a question for the general Fetts at large:
    I had a request on one of my Jangos to sew in some of those plastic quick release clips with an elastic loop for gauntlet hoses. So I started putting them in all the Jangos. Is that something that all the Bobas need too? Because I can totally put those in cheaply and easily. Let me know guys!
