the body of the tunic will be too short for the judges' approval.
the tunic must be long enough to cover the buttocks.

if you have more of this fabric then you'll want to add a 'skirt' portion,
with the seam hidden under the belt/sash.

Correct, be sure the groin and backside are well covered.

One other thing I see: your tabards are too narrow.
Quote:
Tabard width should generally be from the seam at the collar of the OT to the edge of the shoulder and be a similar width as the obi. A general width to use would be 5 inches to 6 inches wide (depending on one’s height and build). Common sense should be used in selecting Tabard width, and the width should be proportional to the costumer’s body.


Thankfully this should be an easy fix if you can get more material, both to make a longer skirt and a new set of tabards. I recommend you line your OT with satin or an additional layer of cloth; it's sheer enough that you can see through it and that's not preferred, especially with a contrasting color beneath.

Ok new progress, I scrapped my mock-up and have finally finshed the collar on my IT and picked my material for my OT. I also weathered my boots as well.

Good choice on fabric, it looks very similar to what others have used for ROTS OWK.

So, tips I got from other makers for that build:

To make the fabric easier to sew, line everything with a closely matching color and a double layer of crinkle on some pieces for extra weight.

Easiest way to put in lining: cut exterior and lining from the same templates, and serge/overlock them to each other before assembly.

Tunic body muslin lining, single layer crinkle
Tunic sleeves: silk/cotton lining, single layer crinkle
Tunic skirt: same as sleeves
Tabards: muslin lining, double layer crinkle
Obi: muslin lining, double layer crinkle, cut on bias

OK, I restarted my template and here is the finished test product. it is a little short for the upper part and will be made longer in the end but how does the rest look???

In terms of cut I would extend the vertical measurements so that the seam between tunic body and tunic skirt falls at your natural waist, especially in the back.

More or less ok? You’re framing the shots too tightly for us to see what we need to see in terms of your sleeve length.

OK, I added some material to the bottom taking it to my waist and picked a different room to take pics. How is this?

Probably good. Cut at the waist looks good. Still can't see the bottom of your sleeve with your arms down due to the framing.

The criterion is that the sleeve must come at least to the first knuckle when your arm is at your side. See Obi-Wan's left hand here:

I second Grimwalker's comments here.
Just make sure all parts are long enough, it's a thing I've seen people go wrong on before

Copy that. The sleeves are right where you pic is. thought I had that shot back enough, guess I didn't. I will double check to make sure. Thanks for all your advise and help. Going to get started on the real material this weekend!!
