    Flannel wool will be too warm and itchy. Go for cotton!

    I know that the flannel wool would be irriating but i'm just wondering if it wouldn't look so much metter than flannel cotton.

    I wouldn't use flannel at all. I am fairly sure the original was a polyester cotton blend anyway. I guess if you are doing an Artic Fett then the wool would be fine. I think in the long run, whatever you think looks the best and feels the best is going to be what you should do.

    Flannel is not really that durable either. I used a sportweight cotton, durable but not too thick.

    Ok then heres another question then. If it is a poly-cotton then how thick do you think it is? I haven't seen many poly-cottons that are very thick.

    Check out my website for pics. I used Green Pepper pattern for men's black butte jumpsuit and a women's vest pattern. Thread is just multipurpose. Fabric for jumpsuit was 100%cotton and vest was ultraleather in a gunmetal grey. Used regular straight stitch. Obviously had to add the short sleeve for the jumpsuit. The vest, I made it zip in back (so had to alter my pattern) and added the cap sleeves (used the shoulder templates to get a size and shape for the shoulders. Also used cording to add the detail stitching around the vest. Used lots of pics from Who Jedi.

    I used the Simplicity pattern for my current BF flightsuit. The pattern would work just as well for Jango. 100% cotton here as well. I might make another flightsuit depending on if I can add some vents to back of my current suit. If not, I'm using one of my Air Force flightsuits for my next pattern because, well I wear one everyday, and it fits great! Just have to add the Fett parts to it.

    If that is the mechanic jumpsuit used for "Grease", then yes, it is no longer available. I had contacted them about it and they had a few left that they said I could order directly through them. If my green pepper pattern didn't work, then I was going to do so.

    Kahuna,
    Glad I could be of help and glad you liked my site!

    I have a gray jumpsuit and I was wondering what dyes should be used to make it the right bluish/purplish tint. Somebody on here mentioned they would give out the mixture that makes the jumpsuit exactly the right color. Help, folks.

    If you have some leftover material or there is an inconspicous spot that you could experiment on, you might want to try your own experimentation with colors.

    I dyed mine a darker purple, then bleached it, then dyed it navy blue. then bleached it. i think the bleaching is very important because the real suit looks old and used, like a black or blue t-shirt when it has been washed too much.

    I dyed my jumpsuit with 70% RIT purple dye and 30% RIT royal blue dye. After it dried I redyed it with 1/4 package RIT navy blue. After it dries, it looks dead-on the right color.

    As long as it is cotton you should be able to use color remover & be able to dye it a new color.

    this is a quick update. I tried everything I could think of to remove the olive drab including 2 gallons of bleach and two different cycles of rit color remover. that color does not budge. it is still the same olive drab.
