Does anyone have an updated "cheat sheet" for sewing on insignia (ABUs, etc.) with simplified instructions and diagrams for sending along to the tailor?  I think there was something in the "Uniform Tips" sticky thread at one time, but the images there no longer seem to display.

Thought I'd ask here before I go and reinvent the wheel.  I'm about to take the plunge, try to overcome my OCD uniform issues (thanks, Cadet Program!  :D )  and just send my stuff to the tailor with instructions and hope it meets my standards when I get it back, so I want to provide as much clear detail as I can.

Darn.  Maybe? I don't hem trousers or do blue jacket braid.

If you get them to me by Monday,  I can likely get them turned around in 24 hrs.

But you're likely to have faster luck locally

I'm fortunate to have a multitude of uniform sewing choices just outside the gates at Ft. Campbell, so I'll try locally.  If it doesn't work out well, I'll be in touch with NIN's Tailoring Service!

I usually just print out the page from 39-1 and give it to the tailor.  That works about 90% of the time.

These days, I don't trust the reading comprehension of anyone I'm not familiar with.  I ended up creating my own sheet from the various relevant pages of 39-1 and the ABU wear instructions, with particular attention on the 1/8 inch of blue showing around the insignia requirement.

Can you send this to me possibly? Would love to use it.
