    i followed the possible sell as well. too bad it fell through. i had a vest made for my version 3 that i sold this summer. i have pics that i can post later. i used the faux leather instead of real leather. i will check with the seamstress and see what she will charge for material and sewing.

    the vest did have the correct seams, velcro closure on shoulder and sides. it also had the piping. it was pretty close to what everyone will want. i just have to find the right color leather of faux leather again.

    Fett2210...the only thing I can say without closer detailed pictures is that the fabric you used looks too "shiny."

    Thx Foxbatkllr, your right.
    I have to use the inside of the fabric out so i think this will match the right style. (I will change this by doing the second Protoype after the weekend).

    Any other sugestions? Plz let me know

    thx

    10 Days later...
    not enough sleep but..

    I changed the fabric of the Jumpsuit and used a zipper instead of velcro.
    I made the collar more accurate and also made the Armdetails.

    Here we go..

    Every time when i see this pic i think, should i really post it?
    Plz no comments about my stomach size

    On the inside of the Jumpsuit i attached a rubber strap around the waist
    so you can adjust it more tight or more wide.

    Armdetail









    On this version i used a zipper instead of velcro


    So let me know what you think about this one.
    And give me some sizes for an interested threat.

    Thx

    Wow, I think that looks pretty good. I'm glad you showed up-close pics of the seams, they look like a good quality.

    The suggestion I would make if you want to make this suit completely compatible with everyones different tastes of color is to make the suits out of 100% cotton material so that it can be dyed and lightened at will.

    I've always felt the fabric was a 100% brushed linen. I actually found some very similar fabric in downtown L.A. within the garment district.

    The only question I have is about the two seam lines going down the middle and backs (yes it's on the backs of the sleeves as well) of the jumpsuit sleeves. I'd have to study the pictures again but I'm not sure if there is one or two seams.

    Also, I'd close up the holes at the bottom of the arms to get rid of some of the excess fabric so you're not fighting with it when you put on your gloves and gauntlets

    That's it but I do have to give you props as a fellow tailor...your construction looks top quality. ...and I like the zipper better also.

    You are on the verge of making a very accurate Jango flightsuit if you can replicate all of the intricate details.

    Here's an upclose pic of the sleeve fold for you from the ref. cd, and a link where you can spot the fold running along the back of the sleeve when you load the large picture (look closely at the back of the sleeves in pic # 138 & 139).

    Great job,

    Any other suggestions? Plz let me know

    Yes,

    i will definitely go with a cotton fabric so the customer is not bound to the color.
    I really like the color that i used on this jumpsuit but will check for an cotton alternative fabric the next days.

    In the meantime i will open an interest List and hope that some of you will jump in

    Would be nice to get one, but you might have to use a whole cotton farm to make one for me..
