Thanks!

Well obviously the ones on the front two panels...

things i have picked out.

collar is a zipper hood

Ok from this picture, it looks like there is some type of pocket or something on the backside of the left leg.

front right leg pocket...zippers on front left leg and front bottom of both legs.



looks like pockets at waist and snaps for the belts i am guessing.

Sorry i am not sure how to make the pictures smaller.

I've done the two top leg pockets, but still working out all the others from knee level downwards. I'm using this for reference, although I still don't have a pattern worked out for all the pockets, some of which look like cargo type, and others flat ones -- with many of them having zippers.

A bit more progress on the flight suit. Belt, vest and harness are not final.

Ejection harness pleated elastic webbing dyed. I will probably do another misting in a paler grey.

Yes. Only a very little is being painted on to tint the fabric.

I've deduced that the cargo pocket on the right leg at the knee is a version of a real-life flight suit knee pocket that accommodates a board that can be written on. There is usually a sleeve for a pen also. The pocket opens from the bottom. Here is the real-life reference:



And these are screen caps:







I plan to work on this over the weekend. Wish me luck!

I believe the many zippers are modelled after the ones on a real flight suit such as this one:

Just a head's up: This pic is of Cassian's parka arm, the one he wore on Jedah. No provisions for code cylinders on Blue Squadron suits.

Yeah Doug, I was thinking the pleats were 1/2". I know, late chime-in for that, but it seems to match what I did for a pilot themed shirt, and I made those 1/2".

Other than that, looking good Smile I had my doubts about that fabric you ended up using, but it looks the part. I might still pick up that first stuff you sent me a sample of though....
