    You guys may want to check out a vest pattern by "Simplicity" the # is 9806, and you can get it at Walmart. YOu will have to do minor alterations, but its a really good base pattern to use if you want to sew your own, and its not overly difficult. Lisa Fett had a great tutorial around here somewhere, and I believe that is the pattern she recomends. Hope that helps PM sent Secol

    I agree, I used the Simplicity pattern and it worked great. The patterns aren't that expensive.

    I use a hospital scrubs pattern as the basis for mine. You just have to make sure that you have a scrubs pattern that has an armhole and separate sleeve as opposed to the kind that has the body piece and arm piece as one continuous piece. I add to the side seam to account for the folds I use for my hidden snaps on both sides and I modify the actual sleeve pattern piece into the shape I need. Easy-peasy. And if you are thinking of doing two separate pieces instead of a flightsuit the scrubs pattern comes in handy yet again as you could use the long sleeve pattern with some alterations and that most have a type of pocket marked out on the pattern for placement on the pants. Works well...although I prefer the flightsuit version now that I've made both.

    The first time I made it I used matte heavy satin with a backing of the same cotton fabric that I used to make the flightsuit. It looked good, but didn't do well with the velcro (tons of snags). Then I installed snaps and ended up with all sorts of little "runs" in the satin. This time I decided to forego the satin look and used a cotton twill - the same as for the flightsuit, again doubled. If I had only been wearing my gear once in awhile I would have stuck with the satin.....but it just isn't fabric that is meant to be abused and since I wear my gear alot it wasn't really feasible for me.

    Re: vest template :)

    Are you punching holes and installing the snaps directly to the vest. That may be the reason you had problems with the runs/tears. A method that has worked well for me and others, is to attach your snaps to a piece of elastic first, then sew the elastic pieces, (with the snaps attached,) on to the vest. Just ans idea you may want to try
