Beginning at the end of December, Heidi started making the revised prototype which is the version she is making for anyone who has ordered one. The revision involves cleaning up the fit on the shoulders and making the arm holes bigger to accomodate the jumpsuit. I'm very happy with it and I think you will be too. This also shows the cotton sateen fabric she'll be using for those without their own.
Heidi has begun receiving your custom material and will begin right away. Be sure to include your shoulder and chest measurement in addition to your actual shirt size. Here's a measurement guide for help.
Heidi is now taking all orders regardless if you have material or not. I shopped around and found a good "cotton sateen" material that has a light sheen and great color .
See the photo below for her color.
Also, please send your shirt size (M, L, XL) and your measurements:
2. chest (all the way around your chest under your arms.)
My sister Heidi also anticipated the issue on the low shoulder caps and said they will now be raised and slightly puffier to look more like these:
The vest will also include the jet pack harness slits in the back and will come without velcro. This way you can do the snap method - easy!
The price will be $60 + $5 shipping. Heidi will do Mediums and Larges for those who already have their own fabric first. She can start right away on those with a Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't forget to specify Med or Lg.
For those without their own fabric, watch this thread for an update for when she's ready for those.
Hey! My sister made me a new separate vest to go with Mrs. TK-409's Neckseal. Cool! I still have to add the back slits for the jet pack harness - but that's easy - with the missus' help of course! I will weather it a bit, but this is just to show the structure and fit. For reference, I'm a medium.
It's got a velcro closure for the back and I'll use snaps for attaching the armor. In the photos, the armor is just taped to the vest for reference.

Let me know what you honestly think - and if you'd change anything. My sister said she'd like to offer these to TDH members as well and she's got plenty of time to do them. Price would be around $65 - possibly lower.
