I started making the blood stripe detail today. I am going to have to make a tutorial for this. All the photos would blow up this WIP. I already have taken 25 photos and have to take some more tomorrow when I insert the blood stripes into the other sleeve.

Here is one photo of the blood stripes before I sewed them into the left sleeve and one after. I had to add three more stripes before I could insert them into the sleeve. I still have to shorten the sleeve to the edge of the stripes before I add the cuff.

Thanks for the compliment. I am very happy about the outcome. I hope that the second sleeve works out as good as the first one. It was a lot of work but it is not complicated and most people should be able to replicate it. I am going to make a tutorial for this after I am finished with the costume.

I added the blood stripes to the right sleeve and took more photos for the tutorial this morning.






Here is a link to the photos that I took for the tutorial.

Thank you. I am very happy with the results. I did some more work on the jacket. I added the right pocket and the band thingy as well as the zipper. The pocket needs another row of stitches but I want to do the pocket on the other side first. I want to make sure that everything looks correct.

I sewed in the left part of the zipper and added the left band thingy this afternoon.

I just had a major setback for this project. I wore my senior officer to an event yesterday and my octagonal belt buckle tore up my shirt. I will posts photos of the damage later today. The edge of the belt must have rubbed so much on the shirt during sitting breaks that it tore it up. The edges do not feel sharp when I rub over them with my finger, but it must be sharp enough to destroy the thin cotton fabric of the shirt. Now I have to repair or replace the shirt that I use for all of my Rogue One costumes. Sad

I am thinking of making a shirt in either tan or brown from scrap for this costume so that it will not be out of order if something happens to the shirt of my Signals Intelligence Technician/Senior Officer. I first thought having one shirt for four costumes was a great idea but now not so much because replacing it is not so easy because I have to find two shirts in the correct color and then alter one with pieces of the other.


Edit:
Here are some photos of the damage. I have no clue how to repair this.

Old fashioned darning, this page is quite good. Although I suspect Kristina might have a good source. I'd think it would add to the costume in terms of it looking 'lived in' or weathered. They are at war....

Oh Patricia, I'm sorry! But yes- totally agree with Empathy. Darning it should work just fine- or a patch. Did you happen to save the sleeves from the shirt you used to make the front panel?

Unfortunately, the sleeves and other pieces are gone but I have another size 4XL shirt. I bought two 4XL and one 2XL because I was not sure if my conversion would work the way it should. I could take off the cuffs and use that material when I try to repair the shirt. I think I have to practice darning a little bit before I try it on the shirt. How would repairing the shirt with a patch work? It there a special technique?

I was thinking of buying two 2XL shirts of the same brand and color and use one to switch out the torn-up front and use the other 2XL shirt with the second 4XL shirt to make a second one so that I have a spare shirt for the Signals Intelligence Technician and Senior Officer in case something happens again. I also think it might be a good idea to use those two shirts only for those two approved costumes and make a third shirt from scratch for my Yavin operations Officer/Trooper from the same tan-colored fabric that I used for my Battlefront desert trooper. I want to make sure that I can repair or replace my costume items easily without having to get it re-approved if something gets damaged or if I lose or gain weight.

I also decided to use my PLCE belt instead of the leather belt with the octagonal and holster. I do not want to risk destroying another shirt for now. It is not a big deal because none of the officers at Yavin besides Cassian Andor had a blaster pistol.
