I think it is a good match but i should probably get some samples sent out to be sure.  I have a good shop in town but it just depends when you go in if they have what you’re looking for.

Hi BrendaP here is a picture that was sent to me with the request, it looks turquoisy but you can never tell on the screen, which is probably why he sent the code numbers for the colour.

Ah, ok I’ll see if i can get a chart, do you think paint shops would have them to take away.  Maybe read the fabric wrong, thought it meant a poly cotton but probably meant a polyester or a cotton.  Thanks for your reply

The Show Must Go On / Greedo star wars costume
« on: May 29, 2022, 14:00:25 PM »
I’ve been asked to make a greedo costume from star wars and been given specific instructions.  I’m happy to take this on and self draft the costume but the fabric required is posing difficult for me, see below

OPTIONAL Level two certification (if applicable):
The flight suit base color is similar to PMS 2183 C.
The racing stripe’s color is similar to PMS 7499 C.
Suit is made of a shiny cotton/polyester fabric.
A double seam runs the length of the Racing Stripes on each side to match visual references.


My question is how can i get the right colour match and does cotton/polyester come with a shiny surface?

Any help would be most welcome, thanks

Thank you ohsewsimple it worked a treat and so easy when you explained how to do it.  Reading on I’ve come to the bit where it says to draw a line to create the armscye shape from 12 to touch the squared across line. Mark this  point 14.  The thing is I don’t know how long the line should be or how long the line squared from 9 should be from the previous bit.  Can you help again please?

Thank you for your reply, I’ll try tomorrow as about to go  to bed now.  I’ve never used a protractor before, this one is my daughter’s from school many years ago.  I’ll let you know how i get on.

Hi, I thought i would try drafting the basic knitwear block from winifred aldrich womenswear book page 158 but I’m stumped just below points 6-8 where it says to construct the line at a 17 degree angle from the line at zero.  I have a protractor but don’t know exactly where to place it, maths was beyond me at school.  Is there another way to calculate this without the protractor.
