    Oct 20, 2007, 5:35 PM - Jango vest - is there a tutorial #1

    Is there a Jango vest tutorial? Thanks.

    I'm going to make a Kal Skirata costume. According to the pic of Kal in the flak vest and armor in the Star Wars Insider #87, p. 57 he looks like his vest is the same type as Jango but a different color.

    Well... what I know is that there are paterns, but dunno If they would help you, they are not exactly a tutorial

    If you have the patterns you always can give them to a taylor, but it's not cheap...

    I don't know of any tutorial either. I have made a couple of Jango-style vests and have just made my own pattern. I use the Boba vest idea and then make it longer, change the sleeves and the way it closes. I researced the ref pics very carefully.

    There is also piping on the vest, which can be made out of the same material as the vest. The best thing is to research very carefully to copy all of the details.

    Good luck and have fun!

    kewl. i figured the same thing. i noticed the piping and the different opening style. Times like this I thank God I have a stage mother that loves sewing up her son's crazy costuming ideas! I really prefer the jango vest to the boba vest.



    of course, im gonna change it up to make it much more individual, while keeping the classic style in mind.

    i think RUPIDUPE just finished a scratch built vest. Might be worth contacting him too.
