    I am building my first mandolorian armor and I have hit a wall with the flak vest. I dont know how to sew and I don't know anybody else who does. Is there anybody I can buy one from, or a shortcut or something like that? I've got a month until the con I plan to wear this armor to. Please help

    quickest way without sewing?

    Buy a Leather T-Shirt As Example LINK and cut a bit around the sleeves. (or leave the sleeves and make ith the Bo Katan way) - Can be found in some shops for bikers and in every shop for Adult-stuff. (and some expensive boutiques but thats to expensive)

    Take a Flakvest: I just took an old Flakvest Like this one for 20 bucks, spraypainted it and put the Snaps for the plates with a Hammer (i had actualy only a month too in that time ;-) )

    Look in the CargoHold Board. Some Users here work on commision to sew vests. ( But that can take some time) Other Users sell old vests in regular sizes (if you have a normal figure)
