I accidentally posted this in the wrong board originally... but I'm new and I'm currently making Rey's resistance outfit. I was wondering if I could get some feedback on the fabric colors I have.



The left is the shirt fabric, middle is for the pants, and right is for the vest. I'm a little worried that the vest fabric might be too dark. Should I look for another vest fabric or would this one be alright to use?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Looks like a good starting point, but I think the middle is too grey for the pants. I think the vest fabric will be okay though it is darker than the movie one. Smile

Thank you! I decided against the vest fabric, because it's just too dark. And I took your advice on the pant fabric.

Here's what I have right now with a side-by-side with Rey as reference:



I'm much happier with the colours, but the vest fabric is actually cotton instead of wool. I think I'll still shop around for some herringbone wool and use this cotton as a "test vest" unless I can still use the cotton.

Thank you again for your help!

No worries about the fabric type, the actual vest is actually made in linen, so cotton or wool work just fine! I like your color for the herringbone. Pants seem a wee bit too dark.

New vest fabric looks very nice. Very Happy And I agree with Sarah; the pants fabric looks a tad dark, but it might be okay. Always hard to tell from a single image.

The pants are actually microfiber suede. I have a friend who saw the costume at the smithsonian and sent me many pictures. If you need anything specifically, just message me. I have closeups of the fabrics.
