Scout Trooper – Vest – Pattern Development

Breaking It Down…

Current standard practice for making your own Flak Vest is to use a plain t-shirt to create the pattern…

I started by putting on the Flight Suit, and then put the t-shirt on. I then added my Chest/Back Armor and marked the edges using a white crayon. I also added the Shoulder Bells and marked the bottom edge.

After removing the shirt and laying it flat on a table, it looks a bit “off” to me. The sleeves don’t seem to line up very well. Maybe I need to do some more research on this…
