Character/Costume Description

Zo-Usza Far was born in the city of Nashal on Talus (Corellian system) in 96 BBY. Orphaned when parents were killed in a transport crash returning from Corellia at age 2.
Entered the Jedi Temple on Coruscant at age 3 after being identified as Force-sensitive in the Nashal orphanage. At age 13 became padawan to Lorac, a Catharan female Jedi Knight. Assigned to Lorac as part of her own training on account of her exaggerated distrust of humans.
Achieved knighthood in 70 BBY at age 26. Post-knighting: trained as Jedi Consular. Currently Jedi Diplomat. Never had a padawan.
Character setting: age 57 (39 BBY). It is 20 years before the formation of the Galactic Empire and the birth of Luke Skywalker. Obi-wan Kenobi is currently Qui-Gon Jinn's padawan, and it is about 5 years into the Clan Wars (post-Civil War) period on Mandalore. It is about 7 years prior to the Trade Federation's invasion of Naboo.

Costume Notes:
Special thanks to Sitharog, KrisAntilles, and Leia for awesome
tutorials/suggestions on tunic skirt, shoulder tucks, robe pattern, self-scrunching obi, belt, and leather pouch construction.
Soft Materials:
Outer tunic, tabards, obi: natural linen look solid (Joann 400069012509)
Inner tunic: natural solid gauze (Joann 400076491892)
Robe: potting soil hopsack linen look (Joann 400104961311)
Inner and outer tunic based on Simplicity pattern 5840 (cut to size L), with modifications:
Pattern has extra-long shoulder seams, so used that as basis for shoulder tuck.
Lengthened sleeve for outer tunic to make up for shortened (post-tuck) shoulder seam.
Widened sleeve for outer tunic to full circumference of the seam attaching it to the main tunic.
Narrowed and lengthened sleeve (to accommodate forearm pleats) for inner tunic.
Shortened length of inner and outer tunics: inner tunic because it was going to be tucked in; outer tunic to accommodate addition of full skirt on the bottom.
Used French seams and blind hems where possible in all construction. Made collars for tunics from one long folded piece (instead of two stiched). Slip-stitched inside seam of inner and outer tunic collars.
All materials from Tandy.
Main belt dye color: about 3-to-1 mixture of java brown to dark mahogany.
Inner belt dye color: timber brown.
Leather utility boxes dye color: dark mahogany.
