I read the proposed guidelines and it doesn't specify anything about the neckline… so I'll take that as it's not something they are super picky about here? Just want to make sure I cover all my bases on it!

IIf you are referring to the top stitching, we're looking at it as almost a faggoting, like on Padme's nightgown. I'm unsure how to get the effect myself, but I'd love to hear what others have done!


Here's what I found on how to do the faggoting - http://www.victorian-embroidery-and-crafts.com/faggoting.html

Thank you for posting all of your hard work. It looks great! I've been working on desert Rey for a long time and came back looking for costume standards, but got distracted by your post. Smile I want to make this costume too, and had a few thoughts, I don't know if they will be helpful, but here it goes.

First off, I found a website that makes hi-res screencaps, 1080. There are a lot of Rey's last costume here: http://kissthemgoodbye.net/movie/thumbnails.php?album=478&page=11

If you want to get a good scalloped edge for your gauntlets and possibly the vest, look for a scalloped edge blade for a rotary cutter. I did this for an 18th-century outfit with tons of scalloped trim when I didn't have the money for scissors.

It seemed like you might be having trouble sewing the padded parts? I liked the idea of using shoulder pads, but you could also try quilt batting. Perhaps a heavier thread will also define the stitching more. And to make the things easier to sew, try using a walking foot to get your lines nice and even. The foot makes sure that all of the material gets under the foot evenly. There's a quilting technique I used on my unsuccessful Duchess Satine costume using netting that gives really sharp edges that I was thinking of using on the pants and gauntlets. If you are interested I can post a diagram or make you a sample.

I know you built the collar, but if you try it again... And if you are not afraid to modify patterns, you might look for a Mandarin collared jacket and match the collar up to the back and front of the jacket. Mark where the shoulder seam is on the collar and split the collar there. There will be a gap where the collar curves, but that's ok. Extend the line of the jacket to match the collar. You will probably need to make it higher.

There is also a thread on the RPF for this too. The people over there are super knowledgeable and will give you dimensions and patterns and stuff.

I hope some of this might be helpful and good luck!
