Here's how it started, just plain orange overalls:
Add some reflective tape:
Then the patch, vest, grease, cuffs, and your'e done:
This photo shows the grease really well! I was originally really nervous about dirtying it up, and was going to go with charcoal and watered down paint. But i completely ran out of time, and didn't want to turn up spotless. So before I put it on, I rubbed it all over the tire in the back (we'd had a flat tire a couple of days beforehand so it was all dirty) much to my mothers horror! Then I put on a pair of gloves, wiped out some more of the grease and dirt fromt he tire and started running it all the general places - thighs, pockets, knees, elbows, butt, and stomach. I also got on my knees int eh dirt a bit. I'd still like to take to it with a bit of sandpaper, but I'm pretty happy with it. Aaron loved that I was dirty (and especially loved that I had grease on my back and butt). The smears on my face were done with eyeliner that I scribbled on my hand and then wiped onto my face:
I loved when people took flash photos:
And finally, Photos with Aaron!! The second one was the one that he got his aide to take! He was really excited to see a few of us in BSG gear and asked if he oculd have a photos with us!!
I couldn't actually have the Cally fringe for the con because of other costumes, but I have the fringe now!!

Dan, I finally got the first grommet attached. I used a ball-peen hammer and a block of pine to set it. The grommet was slightly flattened, but it works.
The dirt is from the orange work gloves. I have been using them to work on my car, and I used them to hold the grommet while setting it.

Do you have a pattern for the vest that you don't mind sharing?

Here is the pattern. Just extend the back as needed.
