I used Etsy for both. The boots cost $60 and they zip in the front but the flap comes up and Velcro’s over the zipper so you can’t see it. Belt is probably around $40 on Etsy too and the one I got is pretty nice. Good pouches oddly enough are the most expensive part.

I decided to attempt Formal Obi-Wan Kenobi approval on this and everything worked out fine! I was even complimented on the soft parts! So that's good news for anyone interested in attempting this!

Roughly speaking, how many yards of fabric does each piece require?

That depends greatly on your height and build. (And the width of the fabric).

For an OT style robe I've never gotten away with less than 6 yards and that's only for short people. Otherwise you can easily add another half or whole yard to that. (I bought 6½ meters for my last and I'm 1.75 m).

I'm slim and have managed to make an OT and obi set from 2 meters, but only just. And I can make tabards for my slim frame from a single meter of fabric if it's full width, but again, only just.

I think I used 4½ meters for OT, obi, and tabards set for my brother, who's much wider across the shoulders than me.
Pants was 2½ meters as I recall.

I can go with that and adjust.

Thanks!

I used this robe pattern to finish my new Jedi Robe. It was very helpful. Some notes for anyone using this:

Be sure at Kinkos/FedEx that you make sure they use the 48" x 36" paper and don't check "Scale to fit". It seems huge, but it matches the pattern from EeanLedgor's diagram. Locally, it cost about $35 to print all four sheets needed for the Jedi Robe.

Hard to miss, but really vital, his pattern adds 3" to the side of the main piece. on the front, he trims an inch off, but be sure and add 3" to the long "straight" seam that goes up the back and is the opening in the front. I would suggest the pattern to be amended to have "Add 3" to this edge" written on it. You trim it off, but in the end, it is 3" to each side on the "back seam" and 2" to each side on the front edge. Because of how he finishes his seams, most have a full 1" seam allowance included in this pattern, so that might be good to not that as well.

Anyways, great having the pattern already made, this was very helpful!

Yikes on the price! If it would be helpful and anybody would like to email me at matthira@yahoo.com I could probably print and ship robe for $20, outer tunic for 15$ and pants and inner tunic for $7 in the US.

Hi, I want to make this costume! My wife is pretty handy with the Sewing machine and is going to help me but can you tell me what material you used on the inner tunic?
