    My sewing calendar is virtually clear if any one wants a vest/neckseal/pouches/spats.

    Still the same price on the vest $50.00 shipped in the US for the vest (Add applicable shipping for overseas shipping)

    if you want the neck seal (Separate piece) add 20.00

    Neck seal (separate piece): 35.00 + Shipping
    Spats: 15.00 + Shipping (if with vest, shipping included)
    ESB Pouches: 35.00 + Shipping (if with vest, shipping included)
    ROTJ Pouches: 35.00 + shipping (if with vest, shipping included)

    Additional items and pricing:
    Update: adding custom and Children's pricing:
    Custom Vest: (Boba Style only)
    Cotton twill: 50.00 shipped
    Vinyl: standard black 50.00 shipped
    Vinyl: other color ( as available) 60.00 shipped

    Custom neckseals: 45.00 shipped.
    __________________________________________________ ____________________________
    All prices are for child's Boba Fett soft costume goods.
    Flack vest (boba style tackle twill): 35.00 + Shipping
    Neck seal (boba style tackle twill): if shipped with vest 10.00
    Belt Pouches: 25.00 if with vest 15.00

    I have done 1 Flight suit and have decided to no longer do these. For Flight suits contact Arkady

    As previously stated, these items are all from LSFU (Ladysewforus) provided patterns.

    Vests are made from S.A. poly-pro tackle-twill
    ROTJ Pouches are made from off white duck cloth and are S.A.
    ESB Pouches are made from Cotton Twill and are S.A.

    question... how much would it be for a Boba vest with a full short sleeve config and no neck seal, but a side closure instead of back closure... IF... I sent you the fabric I want used for the vest?

    Ok guys, my sewing calendar is clear now. Ready to take on more orders as the need arises. I will be doing these as long as their remains an interest.

    Hello All,

    I just need to add a shameless plug for my hubby. I wanted everyone to have a bit of background.

    I purchased another 40 yards of tackle twill about 4 months ago or so. The material that is considered "screen accurate" by the masses here. I say considered, because I have never personally handled the actual costume. This material looks as close as I could ever think possible, and that what the veteran TDHer's say too.

    I got too busy to keep up with all the orders. I already handed the flightsuits to Carole. I do sew them on very rare occasions, but I did hand them over to Carole/Arkady, so I could work on other costumes that have been requested. Because I already purchased the tackle twill, I started training Mark, DC, to sew these.

    You can ask him. I am very nit picky and have trained him well to make these exactly as I do. He has made at least 20 of these now. I have lost track. Mark is using my material, my velcro, thread, my sewing machines, my patterns etc.

    I never wanted to post runs that were called "LSFU" vests, and have Mark sew these. Both Mark and I would not feel good about that at all. It does not seem ethical to us.

    And, Mark wanted to start making these as Budget Fett vests, because we love TDH and know how bad the economy is. We do want to contribute as we can to this awesome group of people.

    So, Mark began sewing and selling these at $50 shipped in the US. The neckseal, if ordered with the vest is $20. So $70 total, shipped in the US. Shipping to Canada is $21 extra. Shipping other areas is on a case by case basis.

    I was selling these vests for $75 plus shipping. I started out selling the neckseal at $45.00 plus shipping. That was the going rate at the time. I lowered this and have been selling them for $25 plus shipping.

    So, when I was making LSFU vests and neckseals, the total was $100 plus shipping costs.

    I would never say that my vests, or now, Mark's vest are the most perfectly sewn costume items in the universe. THAT IS JUST NOT WHAT EITHER OF US THINK.

    But, due to the amount of vests I have sewn over the years, and the feedback that I have received. I can say that my vests, and now Mark's vests are more than adequate to make a very nice Boba Fett costume.

    I look at every vest that ships out of this "workshop". In essence, I am QC now.

    If you need a vest, please do take a look. I can honestly say that you can't go wrong, with the quality, materials, and price of these vests and neckseals.

    I would have to agree! Does Mark do Jango vests and possibly jango suits?

    No, unfortunately, not at this time. I have a vinyl Jango vest run going right now. Carole is starting to make the Jango flightsuits as well.

    Well, I have received my vest/neckseal today and the fit is great! I very highly recommend these vests to anyone... there will be no room for improvement on this part of my costume... that vest CANNOT be upgraded, that's how much I like it.

    Thanks a million Mark!
