Vest Attaching Double Sleeves to Vest?

Eli Jinn

You know how the actual flight suit and vest are like this? (Pardon my crappy "diagrams")

So, since I bought a pre-existing jumpsuit to use for my flightsuit, I've been trying to figure out how to attach my double sleeves. I don’t have much sewing experience, and I'm on a bit of a time crunch, I had this idea...

So my thought process was that since I'm making my own flak vest, wouldn't it be much easier to sew the sleeves onto something that isn't put together yet instead of directly on the flightsuit?


I've looked around and I can't find anyone else who has tried this. I haven't gotten around to sewing them yet, but could anyone give some suggestions or criticism on this idea?

Okay, but given the level of effort here why not go the more accurate route? The flak vest is already a complicated garment if done right. The fit of the shoulders and chest area is both essential and tricky, and I think adding more variables to that equation is asking for pain.
That's how the short sleeves are attached on the Book of Boba set-up. It was kinda a pain in the butt and it's much easier for me to put them on the suit but then again, I'm making the suit so there's that.
