have my draft pants/shirt made. (pants are not best quality, will improve)
used the Rebel havens Endoe leia pocket pattern, but looks a little small: 3.5 x 4.75 in.
had to modify collar on my pattern, but think I'm close there. (any hints on keeping facing from pulling from the hooks?)
And- hoping my boots are good, black leather, no zippers.
could use some hints on assembling the belt...

I think it looks good so far. Maybe it's because of the light conditions but the whole outfit looks a bit too pale to me, especially the shirt would look good if it was a bit darker.

As for the facing on the shirt. I had the same problem, in the end I attached the facing with a visible seam on the front, but it's always covered by the vest so I rather had that than going crazy from the pulling issue.

thanks, starting to worry about getting this all done for Celebration!
It looks pale cuz it's my muslin mockup and the pants are just in a gray knit I had. Got some pale blue twill in the mail for the pants, and some tan twill ready for the shirt.
how are the pockets on the shirt? Do they need to be upsized?

Looks nice.

The pockets could be just a bit larger, but I wouldn't go any smaller. Mine were about 4.5" x 6". The pockets are going to be relative to the size of your shirt. Vera (Rebels haven) is a very petite person, so they are scaled to her size.

I have a bit of double sided iron on to help keep the facings down. I had the same issue with mine.

I think your boots are fine.

What are you questions with the belt assembly?

Belt: attach webbing to middle bar and then thread thru the outside bars? I know, dumb question!
