A Space Ranger uniform based on the 1950’s Dan Dare, Pilot of the Future concept. Dan Dare’s uniforms were based on RAF uniforms of the day. We had an RAF officer’s tunic to copy for details like the pockets and the belt loops, the front reveres, and other structural idea.
This is another Jolly Dicey creation. Looking at the time sheets, Su and I spend the same number of hours onthis one. She did many of the main seams and the buttonholes and other bits. I did the zip, the pockets, the collar, the belt, and many other pieces as well as some main seams
We used an all wool Barathea, lined with Bremsilk, a cupro lining. It was tailored using fusible tailoring methods. The collar felt was cut from a very splendid off-cut of black 100% cashmire Melton!
