Ey guys!
Since i joined the Rebel Legion more than a year ago, I finally decided to make a second outfit: a Jawa.

I already bought the fabrics om recommendations from other Jawa's: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0019CWSVC/ref=oh_aui_i_sh_pre_o0_img?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Together with the brown and orange dyes. ( friend of mine will make my mask ^^ )

Now my question is:
I'm 1.69m tall ( or short?) and i think my arms are just too long to go seamless. I've been looking around, but since the movie jawa's where so tiny, they didn't needed to sew the arm parts together. Will this be an issue with the application if i seam it( cuz i have to due to my arms.)
And my other question: with my robe, where do i need to seam it? I've been to a dutch exhibition where they had a movie jawa. I've looked at it, and i couldnt find any seams. ( only the ones on the hoody :O ) so how did they do that?

I'm open for any tips and advice, as i really can't wait to get started Very Happy

Based on my research so far: You're allowed seams where the sleeves attatch between collar and shoulder. The seams for the rest of the robe are only on the sides. You fold the fabric over, and cut the collar out.

Sorry, had eye surgery and can finally see this. You can have seams where the sleeves attache to the robe, especially to make them longer.
