Green BDU suede patch sewing help

Recommended Posts

Colonial refugees,

I am assembling my 1st costume for Galacticon3, and need some assistance getting the shoulder suede right on the gren BDU's.

How do I get the curve right where the patch goes down the sleeve?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Good Hunting!

If I'm reading your question right then the answer is simple, you sew on the suede first and only until after your suede is sewn down and is the way you want it do you sew the patch on. Does that answer your question or did I totally misunderstand it?

Did you check out this thread? http://www.scifihero.net/forums/index.php?...amp;#entry72989

 

threre is even a pattern for the shoulder suede.

 

When I sew down the panels after they are pinned down, I start by sewing the faux shoulder seam and then I sew the lower part of the panel to the sleeve and then head back up and finish off the top section covering the shoulder. Then I pin and sew the velcro circle or patch to the lower section of the panel on one side.

Thank you. The tutorial was incredibly helpful. I would have been lost without it. I ended up starting at the collar sewing the top part down, then the curved in the sleeve, then the sleeve portion last. The template was invaluable for the suede. Worked like a champ! Thanks again.

Looks great, well done. Did you hand sew or use a sewing machine?
