Author Topic: Rocketeer Pattern?  (Read 5870 times)

Can't I set just ONE person on fire?


« on: June 28, 2009, 08:43:47 pm »

Does anyone know of a rocketeer-type sewing pattern? I've looked for one, but I can't find one and I'm not yet a good enough DIY-man to make my own pattern.

Thank you for your time and energy.

For the costume? No idea I'm afraid but you really only need the jacket don't you? Have a look for military jacket patterns. I'm quite keen to get to work on a Rocketeer helmet....

Hi Ambrose

Have you got a picture of what you are looking for?

I'm not brilliant, and I am kind of busy, but if you could post a picture and pm some measurements I could probably draft something of squared paper for you to scale up. It would probably get done at the end of July though - I'm pretty busy until then.

PS - If I know what you are looking for I might be able to suggest some costume cheats (which are my speciality!).

PPS - Have a look at this page for an original rocketman replica http://www.rocketmania.com/replicas.html

Rocketeer= This gentleman here:

The jacket is symmetrical and (as far as I can tell) wouldn't be excessively difficult to put together. I think it would be made from leather or something similar.

I'd combine the back, sleeves and collar of Galla Rock's Trans Miss Shell Jacket pattern with the panel front  from Buckaroo Bobbins' Western Heritage Light Horseman shirt pattern:

That should get you very close to the look.

It's the (then about-to-be) standard A-2 U.S. Army Air Corps flight jacket, with additional/optional 'bib'.

You can actually buy replica jackets fairly inexpensively - the trick being finding matching material to create the bib, then sewing on the buttons...
