So this will be my first Jedi Build. For about the last 2 weeks or so i have been doing some research trying to decided on what i want to do, how i want to do it, and what i need to do to get approved. I'm still in the planning stage but here we go.

So for my Generic Jedi Build i wanted something a little different then what i see out there. Add in a little color and look for fabrics other then just basic cottons.

So this is the design that i'm thinking of going with. Colors are a little off but i think everyone will get the general look im going for.

So now that the basic look is set i have started looking for fabrics. to start with i was thinking of finding a good Robe fabric. I found 3 different ones that look promising although all of them are about 52in wide and i would like to make this robe without having to attached more fabric.

Here is those 3 fabricsa

I think i like one on the far right the best

yeah its really nice my only issue is the place i found it at only sells it at a 60" width and I would like to make the Robe without having that seam in the middle of the arm. I'm going to see if i can find it wider then that.

Just some input on the seam part:

You could avoid the seam on the arms by moving it to the center of the body (so the whole thing is now 120" and you cut down from there) or you could do traditional sleeve seams like a shirt.

thats another good option. I would have to look for fabric that wide. I might start with the Robe until i do some more research on the tunic.
