Our Crix asked me about Crix Madine...
after looking at the very few screen captures and photos...I determined that the Madine character wore a modified version of an Endor Commando vest...

I had some light tan wool crepe left over from a Jedi costume I made for myself....that I thought would be just about right...
so...
one thing led to another...

and here is the project so far...
in the event anyone has an interest in this costume..


Here is a kinda step by step so far....I do intend to turn it into a tutorial at some point and post it at the Endor Bunker...

Lay Endor Commando front and back pattern adding a foot (in this case)







As noted...
For Crix...the collar in front comes up higher than the vest for the Commando...



The cap sleeve pocket dimensions that I chose..





For the pockets...
the flap was two layers of fabric
and the pocket itself was one layer with interfacing..



For the cap sleeve....I cut two layers of fabric for each sleeve and utilized interfacing on one cap for each sleeve...





Then sewed the pockets on (sew the top hem of the pocket first and press the sides and bottoms in)



sew pocket to sleeve (I straigtened out the pocket flap before I sewed them on....the wool crepe seems to get a bit "wonky")



For the neck lining and front yoke...had to make the yoke pieces longer...obviously...sewed the fronts to the neck lining...pressed and sewed the outer hem under ....





then sewed the fronts to the back at the top of the sleeve..





sewed in the first capped sleeve (still have to put the other in...lol...just wanted to see if it all lined up)



then started to sew in the neck facing and front yoke...taking care to add the velcro to the one side before you sew that side down the front...
it is just easier to do that before the yoke is attached..




Next was to clean up the armholes. Utilizing a strip of the wool fabric that was 2" wide and long enough to go around the bottom of the armhole from the front of the sleeve cap to the back....
I pressed the piece in half and sewed it with the raw edge of the fabric strip to the raw edge of the armhole on the OUTSIDE of the armhole..





After sewing a piece on each armhole, I pressed it to the inside and then stitched it in place.







Then I hemmed it on the bottom..

This is it done...





In looking at the completed piece, I am unsure if the front collar is raised high enough.

Where it is hanging low on the hangar, I think there still might be too much curve to the front of the jacket.

There does not appear to be any snaps, buttons or zippers to keep the front of the jacket closed...where one person suggested that the front be sewn shut and slipped over the head...
I suggested a strip of velcro completely down the front...

so...we will see...

it would be too hard to slip over the head..at least over my head Laughing
and there is clearly a seam down the middle..
velcro will keep it tight all the way down I think.

Crix....
your Crix is done...

It will not set the world on fire....but I hope that it fits marginally well.

I do still need to finish the tutorial above...I did take more photos as I completed it....

of note...
it is wool....the fabric was washed before I made it...
launder it in cold water on the gentle cycle....let it hang up to dry...do not use a dryer...
also...do NOT dry clean it....I will explain that when I get it to you..

Even though I raised up the front collar...it appears that I did not raise it enough...however...it is higher than the photo portrays as the piece is on the hanger so that it is hanging lower in the front....when put on...the front collar will be up higher...but I still don't know if it is high enough..

It does look lower because of the way it hangs on the hangar...
note where the shoulder seam is....

I could even see that as a 'rebel officer' group project.

that pouch that he has looks similar (I think) to the pouch that Sandtroopers have on their backpacks (in black)...

so you might want to ask Rob where he got his pouch...and see if it was brown originally and he dyed it black...
or if said pouch is available in black and brown?

dunno...
