Unfortunately, Photobucket stopped playing nice and now the photo links wonít work on forums. So I canít see these images Sad
Can you switch to another photo hosting site? Imgur works grea (itís what I use) but there are other free ones as well)

Let me know what specific questions you have or what youíre looking for feedback on, and Iíll try to help as best we I can. As you know, costume judges canít pre-approve a costume or pieces, but we can let you know what we think and suggest changes you might want to make before submitting.

I know you are getting close now and am looking forward to seeing your progress!

(PS, if I donít reply here and you have something you want me to see, feel free to PM me to alert me. I donít always check here forums but am always happy to help here when I know about posts.)

They were working earlier. ☹. I'll sort out as soon as I can. Havd no wifi at home jusr now. The main thing I was after advice on was the length of the vest before I sow it back together. It's shortened and pinned up to what appears to be ok to me.

The bottom of the vest should end within the waistband of the pants. As long as it does that, you should be set Smile

Hi Vicky,

Nice job on the prop painting and weathering!

Your pinned vest length looks OK to me now that I've seen the pictures. The back looks perfect. The front could go maybe 1cm shorter, but I think you are still within the right range as-is, so if you've already sewed it that way, no need to take it apart again (just mentioning it in case you're not done.)

A couple of other things that stand out to me that you might want to address before submitting your costume for approval:

1) To me the quilting on the back of your vest doesn't look quite right. The squares look pretty big (wide) and there are not enough of them. This is the picture I used for reference making mine, and I was literally counting squares to try to get the right look:

I think you'd be able to hand sew/tack some additional squares in the back of the vest, so I suggest you play around with it and see how that might work. (I unfortunately don't sew myself, so someone with those skills will have to give the real advice!)

2) Since you've shortened your vest, you may also need to shorten the jacket as well. I can't tell in these photos, so this is just a reminder to check your length against reference photos. Just remember that the jacket should be about 2 inches longer than the vest, so that you just see the jacket waistband under the vest waistband. Like so:


3) Can you post a clearer photo of your shirt neckline/collar/bib area? I thought I might be seeing an extra flap or something in one of the photos, but the resolution wasn't clear enough to tell for sure. This is the best photo I have of what the shirt collar should look like:

So far I've sown one side of my vest so I can adjust the other side front a touch if I can.

With the jacket I was thinking that myself but that is totally beyond me so I'll have to find someone who can. So I could always go with essentially 'scariff jyn and add 'jedha later.

For the squares I'll have a play when waist is on.

Here is better pic of shirt.

Hi Vicky,

I understand that this is the concern:

I pin it correctly to right length etc but when I sow it, I end up with a ridge near the collar where the fabric won't sit right and a huge bulge in the back. It's done it 3 times now.

A ridge near the collar suggests to me that the fabric is riding up near the top while you are sewing at the bottom. One thing I do when I have fabric ride up is to start at the area where it is coming up, tug down on it, and then pin it into place. If you do this several times across (I have really big straight pins, so it's usually 4 pins for me across the back of something. You might need more if you have standard pins) and then several times going down. This will help keep the fabric in place while you sew. It should also help prevent the bulge.

Another thing you could do is, if you have an iron, smooth down the fabric at the top and press it with an iron. I did not own one of these until December of this past year, hence my solutions of things like "lots of pins."

I think I might of figured it out, it was the lining causing the problem and not being happy with pin positions. Now some is unpicked and repinned in position without lining. I'll sow lining down after. Alsl i pulled the back back down as per your suggestion. I took a couple of pics to check length and it's in. So if I don't remove any pins untill it's done it should fix both problems.

I managed to get the waistband back on and get rid of any runches etc. The back looks good, sides too. I might have to adjust the front up slightly more. But will do that later.

Have started to add squares to the back as per your suggestion Jenna.

Hey Vicky, you're making really good progress! For the back of the vest, sewing squares and rectangles as you have done unfortunately needs some adjusting. If you refer to the photo Jenna posted above:



you can see how the quilting is single tacks instead of sewn squares/rectangles. And you can also see how the squares/rectangles are smaller and closer together on the top rows, than at the bottom. The entire row of tacks also gets wider towards the waistband.

The good news is this is not a difficult fix. Once you unpick the squares, you'll just need to make single tacks in the same pattern as on Jyn's. (I made little X's) As Jenna said, just count the little tacks and use a ruler to measure yours out in a similar 5-row pattern.

Also on the side view of your vest I see you've sewn the entire ALICE patch. This is too big and gives an incorrect appearance. If you refer to this photo:



you can see how only half the patch is there. This underarm patch is not required for approval so you could just remove it. Or if you were set on it, you will need to remove it, alter it to match the photo above, and resew it in place. It should only cover the front piece of the vest, not the back.


Hope that helps! You're getting there!

The patch is sorted now. How do i move the tab on the waistband over when I didn't make the pants and so have no material? unfortunately it lines up fine off me. Same with the casing. Vest I can probably do
