Ok I need abit of guidance because I am doudting myself on the construction.

Building the base of jute... Do I need to put more? I was thinking maybe I need to put a bit more at the top line only because the jute does not have overlapping. But then again I am thinking I need to leave it as is because in time it is going to get hot with to much jute.

When you firs start tying on jute, you are going to have doubts. It's hard to tell if it needs more or less given the fact that there are a few variables.

1. When jute is worn in, it frays and takes up more space
2. More jute will be applied on other areas of netting, which will help "fill" out suit, and make it look "finished".

What I do is go through and apply some jute across the entire suit, adding different colors along the way. I don't worry if there appears to not be enough. Once I get the suit covered completely, I step back and take a look. I then add more where necessary.

My first suit had too much jute. It looked like it needed more, and applied some right away. When instead, I should have waited to the end to see if it was filled enough. I ended up having to go back and take some out.

So I would not worry about there not being a suit entirely filled. You can always go back. My suits tend to have much open space for vegetation. I could get some pics up, and you will be quite surprised how little jute there is. To put things into perspective, I can lift any part of the jute up and 90% of the surrounding netting has no jute (in that particular area).

I'll try and get some pics. Its probably hard to understand what I am saying, and sorry for any confusion.

Edit:

Also, the top line looks fine. I prefer to have most of that EMPTY as the boonie jute will come down and cover the upper neck area anyways.

Also, I always start at the bottom and work my way up. Just a thought.

Ok Great, thanks for the tips and help. I am going to work a bit on it tonight and I think I will tie in the jute in every other square because it sounds like if I keep at this rate I will have a very full jute suit.

I did roughly every 2-3 squares, and then jumped up 5 squares, continuing the same pattern throughout the whole suit. After finally adding some more to areas that needed it, it was then time for some burlap filling, which did the job great.

AHP - Below is a link to a recent ghillie suit I made it shows towards the end the frequency of how I tie my jute. I agree with fuzzies process. I use inch by inch netting and tie jute every 2 inches. It seems like not enough but once you have the suit on you have a good amount of space to attach natural veg. Hope it helps

Break it in and add some veg. Will be able to determine how much more filler is needed.

Added another update.

I am trying to get this finished by Oct 29, because I have two OPs back to back where I would like to wear this. Fingers crossed.

**** UPDATE ****
10/3/2011

Ok... I added 1000D Cordura Fabric to the legs and I must say that took almost two days of hand sewing. I had to hand sew because the sewing machine was not strong enough to go thought the Cordura. "OLD FASHION".
I will post pictures of this soon.

Also I added some more burlap strips (green and brown)
Will post that as well soon.
