I was making a new undershirt, so I documented the process... this is a quick and easy way to create an undertunic...

http://grannys-costumes.blogspot.com/2008/01/how-to-make-jedi-undertunic.html


UPDATE: I just read somewhere on this forum that tutorials should not be posted until they are approved by the LCJ or LMO, so I've submitted this for approval. So in the meantime, I am posting this with an "AS YET UNAPPROVED" disclaimer.

UPDATE 1/7/08: I've moved the tutorial page from Fotki to Blogger. Twice now when I've tried to edit on Fotki, I've been re-directed to a page trying to sell me spyware, which tells me that Fotki is USING spyware. I've deleted everything from there and moved it to Blogger, which I've used for two years without problems.

I hope no one experienced any spyware problems because of this!

I know there are people here who will say they've used Forki for X number of months without problems.... well, I don't want to hear it! It's happened twice on Fotki and never on any other sites I visit, so it is not a coincidence! My laptop is my lifeline to the outside world and I won't risk it on questionable sites!

Now I have go run spyware doctor again, just in case....

Hey thanks for posting that. Im sure some people were looking around for that. I know thats how my buddy lance does his obi ep III undertunic. I was thinking of doing that as well for my custom jedi one as well. Tanks for posting it. Much appreciated.

I did something similar to this, and it works great , although I didn't make the false front long enough and it hits right across the chest (don't needed added bulk there either). I did mine without a guide, but this looks very helpful, thanks!

Tutorials can be posted, just not to the actual Costuming Resources section until they are LCR approved.

The main advantage I like about the dickie "cheat" version of the inner tunic is it keeps the collar up and closed much better than its "real" inner tunic alternative. And if only the collar and sleeves of the inner tunic are exposed, who would know if your inner tunic is the "cheat" version of the "real" version?

EXACTLY! It's the only way I can get a decent collar to show! And without being overloaded in the undershirt department....lol

I finally found a source for BROWN gauze! www.syfabrics.com and their service is awesome.

However, it's pretty thin.... great for sleeves but the collar will have to be double layered or lined... I'm thinking a layer of gauze over a layer of lining fabric.

I'll post pictures after I try one out.

I make my undertunics from the gauze, and I do two layers (well, four with it folded over) for the neckband and then hand sew a discreet running stitch on the underside near the fold so the inner layer won't scrunch up in the wash. I've tried lining and interfacing, but the gauze is so stretchy that it's not very compatible with other fabrics.

BTW, stay-stitching before sewing seams (especially on the diagonal front and arm caps) is a MUST!

Hancock's had a nice selection of the gauze but they only have the sand/tan online now. I bought some yardage of the caramel a few weeks ago and have now decided I need another undertunic for Dragon*Con! (Nothing like last minute projects.... Rolling Eyes)

By the way, I keep my undertunic criss-cross neat and tidy by pinning it in place to my bra. The pins don't show under the tunic and tabards.

Sorry guys, that won't work for you, but then you don't have the "issue" that causes the tunic to "gap" badly. Wink

I do suggest pinning the collar to the undershirt, but I pin to my bra, too... I was thinking that sewing a layer of gauze and a layer of lining fabric at the same time it would keep the collar from stretching.

I'll post back after I try it.
