Iím just getting started on my Generic Jedi.
Iíve got a few pieces on order- my boots and a pair of khaki colour jeggings. I like the closer fit of tights/leggings to the looser menís cut.

Iíve been working on fitting my outer tunic- altering the Simplicity 5840 to suit a more feminine form and doing a bit of altering to the bottom half for MY Jedi- with a bit of a high/low skirt to it.

Iím planning on using a t-shirt as a base for my under tunic and adding sleeves and the neckline a la Ewan in RotS so the brown of it doesnít show through my lighter over tunic.

I still need to pattern out my obi and tabards, and find a buckle for my belt when I get to it.

I donít have any pics yet, but will share when I get to a picture worthy place.

Obi pattern is kind of disappointing - it is a rectangle, cut twice and sewn together.
Tabards are twice/triple the fun - each is consists of rectangles/trapezoids. Check out the tutorials in the forum. Width should be three times the belt, then it should work out well.

I know theyíre nothing fancy, I still need to get them done.
Iíve seen a few tabards patterned with a bit of arc in the front top to accommodate the female form- I still like the process of doing the thing.

Iím also thinking my tabard skirts in the front might echo the drop in the back on my outer tunic, and havenít actually decided on if theyíll be OWK or QGJ style in the back- that might depend on how much material I actually have for them.

I went for the third option - longer than skirt (down to boots) on front and longer than skirt on back. I have no velcros (surprisingly, it holds without for 3-4hours), so I can interchange left/right/back/front, in case there is a flaw in sewing.

Iíve finally got some progress! Most of my outer tunic is together- I need to see my tucks and attach the skirt and collar, but progress is progress.

But before I do any of that, I need to decide if I need to bring up the gems on the cuffs and front of the skirt.

Well, the length of your hems will depend on how it sits on you, so it's really impossible to tell from seeing it on a dress form. But make sure your sleeves go to the base of your thumb and that your skirt completely covers crotch.

I ended up bringing up the skirt in the front, and the Ďtuckí took care of the bulk of the sleeve length. All it needs are ties to secure it, but Iím not so worried about that until Iíve got more finished.

I also love the weight and hang the whole thing has.

Looks good so far. Smile You'll need a fairly wide obi to cover the waist seam considering how it dips down in the middle back. (I'm guessing the weight of the fabric drags it down). Just something to keep in mind.

All thatís left to do is my belt, pouches and such and then my robe- but Iíll get there. The belt pieces are coming in the post over the next week, and Iíll piddle with it then.

I have a few things I need to tweak- like adding a wee flap onto my obi to cover the join, but thatís a matter of 15 minutes of work, and need some strings trimmed and maybe a few little hand stitches here and there to get things to stay where they belong.





Anything obvious or subtle that Iím missing? Besides the obvious pieces still to be added?

Oh, you are making an obi bow? Not often we see those. Smile Yeah, rotate the obi 180 and add an obi bow; that should look awesome.

An obi bow? Do elaborate!!

I just had the obi on backwards because until I added my hook and eyes, it was hard to put on by myself. (I *might* have to come back and make an obi with an extra inch on it, just so it fits a little looser) and since this Iíve added a bit of a Ďgap flapí that covers the closure so it wonít show under the belt.

There are many different styles of obi bow, but for jedi a very simply one can be used, a bit like this, but without the part hanging down.

http://kimono-sakaeya.com/Tokyo/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/DSC_0320-e1499916238655.jpg

Otherwise look at Atris, Queen Apailana or Queen Amidala in her kimono style outfit to see how the GFFA use obi bows. Smile

Got my leather in, and *almost* all of the hardware for the belt as well- my buckle is taking the long, slow boat from China apparently, and should have it by the new year- but until then, Iíve got it dyed and conditioned and everything else done on it- left the outer belt pieces long so I can do what needs done when it comes in.

As for the obi bow, I think Iím going to make one I can add or remove- and have it as optional, if thatís something I can do? I have plenty of materials and not much to do, so why not?

I like what you've done with the back of the skirt. the tabards might be a little wide at the shoulder, but that's probably just a matter of preference. either way you've done a great job. you should be very proud.

Progress looks very good. I concur the tabards might be a smidge wide. Great work overall.
