So this past weekend I have started to design and sew my generic Jedi. It's been in the talks for sometime now but being a new dad , tattoo artist that travels and well a collector. I finally jumped in head first. Lol being my first time back at sewing in over 10 years lets just say I've poked my self more than once with pinning patterns and my back and butt are sore ....

Ok so I have decided to do a Ki Adi Mundi/Cerean style Jedi. I am doing a dark green sleeveless Ot with hood , A reddish brown inner tunic and Tabs (being I live in st george now I see it fitting) I am trying to decide if I am going to add some lighter green somewhere lol maybe !!!

I will be posting my progress

Ok on to the fun stuff i am using the simplicity 4450 out of print pattern so I am making my own traced pattern so it is taking longer than i want haha but I cant bring myself to cut up an $80.00 pattern



me starting to lay tracing paper out to copy pattern


back of Robe/outer tunic traced


This is how much different the front pattern is for my outer tunic compared to the robe


This is the back for the OT/Robe


Me coloring fabric


The fabric for the outer tunic and maybe inner tunic


Laying the pattern on and pinning (only after i mad a mock and sewed that and made corrections)


This is the back and front of the outer tunic and I'm going the extra mile and adding a silk fabric to the inside of the OT


Oops I sewed the wrong sides together ( fabric has a front and back to each piece when sewing a backing to your fabric make sure you place front to front haha)


Doing it right this time haha after about 20 mins unpicking the thread


Aftermath of first night[img][/img]

Ok so I got 95% done with the outer tunic tonight having a blast doing this


Front view I still have to work out the flap/snap to keep it closed right (It looks great with a belt I borrowed one of my wife's haha


Side view you cant really tell but the curve sits right at the knee


Back drape looks awesome and the hood sits better but trying to get photos is a lil hard haha


I still have the neck binding to do so the seam doesn't show

According to the Jedi standards, you can use Straps and shin spats if you can't find a Vegan boot that covers the calf. Maybe a vegan hightop shoe and Vinyl straps/spats?

Thank you for sharing this!

Was there consensus on approval fabric for the long sleeve shirt (lined tunic)?

Any completed build photos?
