    Need flightsuit help

    OK guys I am working on my Jango V3 final.

    I need some help with a flightsuit on what color and type of fabric to get. My mother in law will be sewing it for me so I am not looking for a premade one just some material.

    Any help is appreciated!

    One thing I can tell you is the material was brush linen.

    Hi First Son,

    Most of the TDH members will tell you to use 100% cotton twill or brushed twill. The color is a topic of debate for everyone. If you are concerned with being exactly accurate, you may want to buy a reference CD. You can purchase one here.

    There is a thread started by Loanstar that is very helpful. Loanstar makes Jango flightsuit and if you read the thread from start to finish, it explains every detail and also discusses color. After I type this I will find the thread and post it.

    For a pattern I use a KwikSew coverall pattern, #3389. This pattern is design to wear over street clothes, so when your mother cuts it out she will want to cut at one size smaller than your measurements. If you look at the pattern and measure a size Medium, the cut the pattern at the small line.
    This would apply to all of the pattern, except for the torso length. You should probably keep the torso length the same.

    I will search for a couple of links and post them here to get started.
    You can use the search function and find the answer to almost any question you would have.

    Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

    Research as much as you can. There is A LOT of info on these boards and if you want to be as accurate as possible. There is a lot of studying involved.
    It is similar to the old adage, measure twice, cut once. Research, research, research, and purchase something you will be satisfied with.

    Good Luck!

    I used 2 RedKap Postman Blue coveralls to make my jumpsuit. It is not totally accurate but it looks pretty good.

    If you want to see how it looks the link is below.
