    Regarding the accuracy of my vest patterns...

    I've been getting PMs asking 'how accurate is your pattern'?

    I designed these patterns with a couple changes from the movie, since the majority of us actually wear the costume, as opposed to simply displaying it on a mannequin. Here are the differences, and the reasons, that I've made a few changes.

    4. "The original vest had thinner Velcro." Yes, it did, but it was only designed to fit one person (or his stunt double). These patterns are designed so that a 'Large' could fit a wider range of body types, simply by positioning the Velcro differently. This prevented me from having to develop more than three patterns.
    Plus you wouldn't want this to happen while fighting out in the wastelands of Tatooine. Looks to me like the vest popped open during this shot...

    I have to agree, this looks almost too shiny. Before you throw all of your stones at me, I am buying it, because with A LOT of weathering, it could lose a lot of it's shine, and be more ESBish. and BTW, I have that same picture, and fabric doenst look nearly that shiny. I mean, even his jumpsuit looks shiny in this pic.

    Ok, well I have major money problems. I am going try this. I will pay BobaFettish for 1.5 yards and make a custom vest (unfortunately cause I have no sewing skill and was going to ask batninja do it)

    If I get the money worked out by Sunday, can I add another yard to my order?

    My dining room will become "Sewing Central" for the next few weeks. It takes about 4 hours per vest, but this has to be scheduled around my day job and other activities (I do some part-time DJ work in the evenings).
    I should be able to crank out five or six vests a week...if I don't sleep/eat/etc...
  18. Apr 27, 2006, 1:15 PM - Re: BobaFettish's Accurate Vest Material Sign-Up List #93

    OK, I think I have everyone who has paid marked "paid" now. If you want your material shipped to batninja AND I HAVE NOT MARKED IT THAT WAY IN THE FIRST THREAD, PM me and I will make the edit. If it is already marked that way, you don't need to PM me.

    Thanks
