Thx u so much, originally i started all this to make a gift Fett Helmet for a friend, but the more i stay around and all this info...... i think i will just keep the lid and make me a whole Fett!!!!!
Once again thx!!!!
COOL!!!!! now THATS how they made it...
Outstanding! Thanks for the help!
You make it look so easy. Heck, I may even try to make my own now- thanks!
LadySewforus and to any it may interest:
I used your tutorial for a neck seal. The dicky part just bunches up around the base of the neck. I removed the dicky part and cut/hemmed a flat, fabric donut that had a "hole" a little smaller then the inside of the closed neck seal. I then sewed the inner edge of the donut to the bottom of the neck seal. When the seal is closed, the whole thing looks like a short, white hat with no top. Make sense? I will post an image, but the dicky lays much better over the back, chest and shoulders. Some fine tuning and it would lay perfectly.

Worked a treat - many thanks.
I was using a 2oz padding so my strips were probably nearly an inch as the first 'rib' looked a bit weedy.
I'm going not attach a dickie but attach the neck seal to the flak vest or flightsuit - any advice on which would be easier/look better?
