I sewed the combination Garment/Hammock project and discovered, as I suspected, the design and concept seem hopelessly flawed. Is any one surprised? I was just out in the back attempting to test it so I have not assembled my full report yet. I was all set to do a video of myself stripping down to long red woolies (with the flap in the back) and setting this up (silent movie/keystone cops style) but I see no point in that at the moment. Better to save you all the trauma.
I started this thread to leave the official discussion thread focused on the successful attempts. But I will submit the pics of the project over on the submission thread before the 10th and I'll post my full report over here when I have it assembled.
Meanwhile, if anyone else tried an unsuccessful design from a vintage patent feel free to add to the failures. Right now I am all alone.... (boo hoo hoo)
