Crix had sent me an e-mail regarding patterns for Jedi....
so I thought I would look into if what I have used in the past might be available...

This is the pattern I used for my robe and it is still available:

http://www.simplicity.com/p-2620-costumes.aspx

There are modifications one has to do if using the pattern above....
you must make the hood larger for the correct looking huge hood
also..
to eliminate the yoke seam ...you must tape two pattern pieces together and not cut them separately.


This pattern is also available....

http://www.simplicity.com/p-2272-costumes.aspx


I am not crazy about the tunic pattern because of the dropped sleeve...
but the pattern is something that is certainly useable...
You can use the pattern for the "shoulder armor" to modify as tabards...
and the obi/sash is certainly useable.

NOTE THAT ON PATTERNS STILL AVAILABLE...
that Joanne's runs pattern sales all the time..
you can sometimes pick up patterns for as little as 99 cents...
look for the sales!


I will scan some of the other patterns that I have used and post them later. They are all out of print but maybe can be found on e-bay.

Also...
There are patterns and tutorials at The Jedi Assembly that can be used...
some of the tutorials are mine...
some of the tutorials don't even require a pattern...

Check them out here:

http://www.thejediassembly.com/tutorials.php


Fabric...

I tell this to everyone...

use natural fibers....
period...

cotton, silk, wool, etc...
No polyester, acetate, etc...

Jedi costumes are VERY hot because of all of the layers....
so...
natural fibers will help in keeping you at least a little cooler...


Stay tuned...
more to come...

Here is a pattern on E-bay that I started with..
and came out in 1999 -

it is good for undertunics...

http://cgi.ebay.com/M-2433-216-ADULTS-SPACE-NOMADS-COSTUME-PATTERN-m-l_W0QQitemZ250383401728QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item3a4c038300


here it is in small:

http://cgi.ebay.com/McCalls-2433-Space-Nomads-Costumes-Rare-OOP-XS-S_W0QQitemZ110376994624QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item19b2fb4740


and..
part of a package deal...this one looks like it might be cut which is problematic if parts are missing...
and look this one is the child's pattern


http://cgi.ebay.com/5Pak-of-HALLOWEEN-PATTERNS-SUPER-HERO-SPACE-COSTUMES_W0QQitemZ290346366624QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_2?hash=item4399fdf6a0


a great find...

Very Happy

phyllis - the out of print simplicity jedi pattern is also good - (but tabbards are funky)..

I have a few of that one that (while i am not willing to give away and part with), if someone is local and would like to borrow - i have a M and an XL (i think) cut out), i would be willing to loan.. I was going to copy it onto some heavy paper and just have not gotten to that yet...

I have that Simplicity Pattern as well....and...yes...the tabards are funky.

and I really don't use any of the pattern except for the "dickie" which I use for cheater undertunics.

I made my own pattern for my obi which is based on my waist size...
again... my first Jedi costumes had a "sash" that really was not as comfortable as the complete adjustability of an obi.

I posted that tutorial here:

http://www.thejediassembly.com/tutorials.php?id=b5h

You have to click on the box on the left to see the various illustrations.


For the most part, the only pattern I now use is one that one of my fellow Jedi Assembly members drafted for me.

The tunic has a waist seam which is consistant with Obi-Wan's costumes (waist seam was revealed in a screen capture during a lightsaber battle). The best part about the waist seam tunic is that everything stays in place really well. The first tunics I made for myself had no waist seam and when you would wear the costume and move about...the tabards would shift around and so would the tunic itself. I would spend more time re-arranging the costume as doing anything else. Since making tunics with a waist...I really never have that problem anymore...and I have sometimes worn my Jedi tunics for extremely long periods of time in perfect comfort from shifting and bunching.

I utilized my drafted pattern to make Crix's Jedi....I just left out the darts and cut the pattern larger/longer..
.
I am now helping a girl smaller than me make a Jedi costume utilizing my waist seam pattern again...this time I am having her cut the pieces smaller and we are going to make the darts a little larger....
that should take out about 4 inches.
