    Anyone who has sewn their own flightsuit, what material works for you? I was at the fabric store today looking at some cotton twill, as well as cotton broadcloth. Just curious what you guys like. Found some broadcloth that is a great ESB blue!

    Cotton twill in white. Than you'll have to dye it the correct color.

    Twill seems awfully heavy. Some of the stuff I have felt has been almost denim weight.

    If you look at good up close PICS of the suit you can see the weave of the fabric. I've seen the suit at an exhibit. Cotton twill looks like a good match to me.
