I think your shirt looks great! You're instantly recognizable as Luke. I hope you haven't given up on it.

After a ...long break definitely coming back to this costume!! It is really iconic and I noted all the comments when I wore my test prototype.
Lora's comments were spot on but did kinda discourage me for awhile!!
I'm working on the pants now, have the V 2730 pants pattern with the 'riding seam'; think those should go fairly well.
Found some fabric to redo the shirt with including a more nubby lining; will post photos soon. Have to work on resizing my muslin and getting fit right.

That is one good looking riding seam. Very smooth and perfect curve. Smile (And one of the rare occasions it's okay to look at someone's behind).

thanks Lora! First effort wasn't so successful and I figured out the trick of snipping the whole inside curve...
working on the actual fabric now!

So will try linking to photos via google photos for the moment; still trying to find the best solution with some privacy. Sigh.
Anyhoo, tux stripe applied. Waistband next.

Found some possible boots but not sure they’ll cut it.
Have laces in back that I can remove but will leave holes. Also is zipper on inside calf ok?
