Hi All,

I have begun work on my season 3 Sabine Wren. I used Simplicity 8435 bodysuit pattern to draft the pattern for the flight suit top. I am using a scuba knit form Joann's. I have cut the fabric and laid out the fabric pieces below. (I included a white remnant for color reference since the lighting isn't great.)



I should be able to sew this up this weekend. I am not looking forward to that curve on the back... I am going to begin drafting the sleeve next. In the proposed CRLs for Sabine Season 3, there is mention a outer short sleeve. I think this look is more authentic for Mandalorians and want to use it for my build. If for some reason that part of the CRL is not approved, would it be an issue if I made my sleeves that way?

Also, what fabric did other Sabines use for the pants? I am having trouble finding fabrics with the right stretch content and accurate colors, help me!

I think it's looking really good! I'm not a Sabine, but I love the idea that you used the scuba fabric.

May I ask what's got you nervous about the curved seam?

Thank you!

That is making me nervous because I have found that when matching curved like that, one fabric tends to gather under the presser foot. It is also way too easy to get excess fabric under the needle if I don't constantly move it out of the way. There is a good chance I am going to hand-wheel that entire curve.

I've found lifting the presser foot every few stitches and stretching the concave curve slightly help a lot. Smile I also usually have the convex curve on top so I can watch the material more closely. Lots of pins! Smile

OK so I was able to set some sewing done this (but not as much as I had hoped). I was able to stitch the bodice front and back and sew them together. I mentioned before I wanted to look of 2 sleeves for my Sabine. I really didn't the bulk of 2 double knit sleeves at the armhole sleeves so instead i added a false second sleeve instead. I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I was able to make exactly 1 sleeve before life got in the way. I hope to add the other sleeve and collar next. weekend.









I started to look for pants material and am having issues finding fabrics that match her color, especially the lighter color. I ordered these swatches online. The dark one is a twill Jetset and the lighter one is stretch denim. I tried to take the picture in natural light to give a more accurate idea of the colors.



I was looking to see what types of boots wear for Sabine and I saw the Anne Klein Durwyn mentioned a few times so I looked it up online and bought a pair for fairly cheap ($35). They are really comfortable, but I am not dare about the neoprene in the back. Is this boot approvable for RL?



I am on and off terrified of this build so any guidance is greatly appreciated.
