Well, survived the second class without making any excessively embarassing mistakes. One of the more experienced people on the course (it's a mixed ability class) did comment that my project was pretty ambitious for a first one though. It's a modified American Civil War navy blue wool double-breasted shell jacket: anyone care to guess what I'm trying to make? ;-)
ETA: a little clue:


We also got asked to fill in (another) objectives form. Wonder if I should include this pattern from DIY Tactical? ;-)

Heh. There's even a discussion thread on Airsoft Community (requires registration though) for people who like to make their own tac gear!

Something SF related, perhaps? But depending on the modifications, nothing immediately springs to mind - maybe Firefly-related...

Right on the SF bit, not so on the Firefly bit. See revised entry for an added clue!

Oh, I know what it looks like, I'm just not sure what SF costumes it reminds me of!

There's the Centauri military, but they're more like bandsmen's costumes, and the Genii in Atlantis, I suppose...

Unless you're planning a Nu BSG uniform, in which case there are probably easier adaptations than from a Civil War shell jacket...

Quite possibly but it was the closest I could lay my hands on at the time!
