2-inches for obi-wan ; 3-inches for mace windu (and anything in between).





(so basically : 2-inches, for the purpose of THIS tutorial , which is VERY "obi-wan specific").

Quote:

Although this tutorial will specifically talk about an Obi-wan Kenobi (OWK) costume,
this tutorial can be easily modified for other Jedi costumes!

yes.




I don't see why not.
the korbanth saber is "pristine" (non-weathered) which more closely resembles Obi-III;
the only visible difference is the 'bubble strip' on the control box.
(which is easily replaceable with an EPIII circuit board).

the judges accept "force-FX' sabers for EP III ; korbanth is infinitely more accurate than force-FX.

This is sort of an ongoing thread that folks use for making Jedi. While there's not much activity, I try to respond to questions...though most questions come via email or inbox (on FB).

Generally speaking, the collar for Jedi tunics is around 2" wide. I strive to make my 2.25" wide. The strips of fabric (before sewing) with seam allowances are about 3.5 wide (with one side having a rather stiff or heavy duty fusible interfacing).

So this is a rather old forum, but it seems people are posting in it. Awesome tutorial, I am following it to make my first full outfit (Hopefully in time for TLJ), but the one thing I cant find is this: how wide should the collar for the outer tunic be? I have a strip of fabric that is long enough, I just don't know if it is wide enough.

Also, for costume standards: I have a Korbanth/Parks K4 lightsaber. It is the Kenobi lightsaber from A New Hope. Could I use that for an Episode III Obi Wan, given that the two sabers have the same overall shape and are "the same" in canon?

Awesome tutorial! I have read it through several times and am ready to begin my costume. I am completely new to sewing and have searched as much as I can in regards to techniques. For the life of me I can't figure out how that collar is attached to the OT. Is there a video somewhere that details that step? My brain just isn't handling the written explanation. Also, does the OT back have a skirt as well, or just the front?

Interestingly, I intend to update with video tutorials...especially with photobucket crapping out on us. I'll draw a pic or two and post that up...or you can hit me up on FB where I can easily do a quick video.

There is a skirt pattern for the back and front. You use the one piece to make both patterns. One you cut on a fold (to get the back) and the other you cut two pieces (one for each front panel for the outer tunic).

As for the collar construction, granted a video would work best, but I've not had the opportunity for that yet. Until then, please try to wade through my crude picture:



Hope this helps.

Yeah, that was my thought. The Force FX sabers aren't exactly thin necks. Mine is still weathered, and it does not have the covertech clip, so that might have to be added, we will see.
