very good tutorial friend, I have doubt dae as manufactures wings on the shoulders , I can not either make the shape or size sorry for my english
Thank you for your help, I appreciate it . now I 'm deciding which fabric is best for the vest . I found these two
this is pulse 47
Is that material leather? and where are you getting it from? I might be interested in purchasing some since I'm having a difficult time finding the right color.
Thanks for the info. Unfortunately it doesn't look like they ship to the United States. I'll just have to keep looking.
Thanks for the info. I actually got lucky and found the perfect leather (I Think) it was at Tandy leather on the bottom of their pile. Lots of digging to get to it lol. It has that slight bluish hue to it and goes from a dark grey to a light grey depending on lighting, The rough side is a denim blue color. It was the last one they had but I probably have enough leather to make 2 maybe 3 vests. I don't know what it's called all it says is Made in Argentina but for anybody with a Tandy Leather near by it was on their Whole Hides Assorted Colors table and measures .047 to .038 in thickness so basically 2 - 3 oz. (I measured it with my Digital Calipers)

I would love to buy a new flak jacket, anyone actually selling?
Ok well I just finished my second vest and it turned out well but I still think I need to make some adjustments to the pattern. I was thinking about dropping the bottom of the arm hole 1" and reducing the chest material by 1/2" on each seide, I think the front neck line needs to come up about 1/2" and lower the back neck line by 1/8". tell me what you think.
