Replica Robin TV Vest with Original Fabric


Hi All,

Here's a project my wife and I are wrapping up now.

We had the pleasure of taking a set of patterns off an original set of screen used Batman and Robin costumes from the TV show in the 60's.

As luck would have it, we found what we believe was the last bit of original fabric used on the Robin vest at one of the shows fabric suppliers.

Add several months to track down and custom dye other textiles and voilà,
Here is the result.

On the left is my lovely wife Lynne wearing the original vest. On the right the replicas.

Also included is a photo of a fabric swatch of the found fabric on top of the original vest. The owner of the vest said he had to put it over the laces and emblem to keep it from disappearing in the photo.

Anyway, We're pretty happy with the outcome and just wanted to share some images.

All the best,
Chuck...
