That is too funny. Maybe you should start a thread to find out who holds the record for longest time in armor, LOL.

I like your sig bar comments too!

LadySewforus and to any it may interest:

I used your tutorial for a neck seal. The dicky part just bunches up around the base of the neck. I removed the dicky part and cut/hemmed a flat, fabric donut that had a "hole" a little smaller then the inside of the closed neck seal. I then sewed the inner edge of the donut to the bottom of the neck seal. When the seal is closed, the whole thing looks like a short, white hat with no top. Make sense? I will post an image, but the dicky lays much better over the back, chest and shoulders. Some fine tuning and it would lay perfectly.

Worked a treat - many thanks.

I was using a 2oz padding so my strips were probably nearly an inch as the first 'rib' looked a bit weedy.

I'm going not attach a dickie but attach the neck seal to the flak vest or flightsuit - any advice on which would be easier/look better?
