I don't really know where to start so I thought I'd just ask the question.

Is there a place where I could buy sewing patterns for Jedi outfits? Tunic, robes, and ect.

If there was any one thing that I could manage to do for a costume it would be operating a sewing machine. lol

I know I'd have to find some place to buy boots, belt, and other accessories.

Thanks.

I don't know of any patterns you can buy that will get you an accurate costume. However, there are good how-to's here: http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=250 There is a good Jedi Tunic how-to in tis thread: http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=29112

I hope that helps you get started. Smile

Simplicity 5840 is a decent place to start, but you'll need some alterations for an approvable RL costume. I think that might be the pattern used in the tutorial linked above. 4450 looks nice, but it's out of print.

Rein Quest-

Even though this is an older thread, just wanted to see if you were able to get a pattern together. I may be able to help you if you haven't yet.

Dear HeatherG1978,

I'd also be interested in any help you could offer with a pattern, trying to purchase one from eBay is proving to be a bit of a pain in the backside :-)

Sorry...I didn't see that there had been a reply. I took a pattern and modified it. Have had 4 Jedi robes approved as formal using it. If I knew the basic size you were looking for I could see if I already have one that would work that I already redrew. Are you experienced with sewing? It is pretty basic to put together.

I know I'm posting into an older thread... but is this offer for Jedi pattern assistance still open (and available to the public?)

I'm also finding it difficult to acquire a suitable pattern.

Experienced costumer and sewing-machine-operator, so following a pattern is not a problem.

Just provide me an address and I'll shoot you postage!! Smile

Just wanted to add that my Jedi outfit is a simplicity 5840. The only thing I would recommend in modifications is to make the tabard go down past the belt line in the back and possibly narrow up the shoulders a little.

Im a broad guy and they are still a bit wide even for me.

But all in all everyone loves the outfit and I was approved quickly.

I actually extended the tabard in the front and connected the belt to it for easier use. A couple pieces of velcro here and there make a long troop easy. I think I may extend the back too.

I was wondering if 5840 works for female Jedi outfit?
The pattern description says unisex but its a bloke in costume on the packet?
