    Making a Flightsuit

    Hello, I was thinking about making a flightsuit, but I'm unsure of where to start.

    are there patterns that people have made that they are willing to share?

    I'm also fearful of getting the wrong color fabric, or dying it the wrong color.

    If I were to scratch the idea of making it on my own, where would be the best (most accurate) place to get a flightsuit. Are BM's flightsuits very accurate? Does Ladysewforus dye the suits?

    Hiya TK5019,

    We start with a Kwik Sew pattern 3389, and add the details from there. You can find some good reference pictures here, that will help you to get the details correct. There are a lot of little details needed to match the screen used suit. Carole/Arkady and I make the flightsuit. We have purchase a new roll of fabric. It is an ESB grey color. A bit lighterweight than what we had previously, which will make it a bit cooler and more comfortable to wear.

    I have stared dyeing our suits. If someone needs ROTJ, I can dye our fabric to add a bit of grey, so it is more of a ROTJ color. I have had a bit of a hiatus from TDH, but if you would like to PM me, I will try get back to you right away. If you have any questions, just LMK

    Happy New Year!!
