I'm having a seamstress make me some pants using a dark denim (ANH) for Han. She is goin to embroider the bloodstripes using a machine, but she needs a pattern to follow. Does anyone have a pattern or know how I can make one on a computer? I don't have Photoshop or illustrator so that's out. She needs a pattern which runs the length of the pants. I figured it could be made on a computer and make several copies.

Thanks!

Well in case anyone was interested:

I had a friend make a pattern for me using CAD. Looking at Bob's stripes and having my seamstress agree, I made them slightly wider (1 1/4 in.) but the other measurements stayed (1/4in wide, 1/8in between the stripes). These are set to scale. Do not re-size the image or anything.



This will make it super easy for a seamstress or anyone with a machine that can embroider. Or for you, if you're brave.

Enjoy han shot first

Glad to help guys. I can't wait to get my Solo done. All of the soft parts are being made. If it is done by mid to late July, I hope to be accepted to the Legion, so my first official troop can be CV!

just so that I know that the pattern printed to the right scale..

the strip itself is 1 1/4" wide...
and each stripe is 1/4 " high?

I am modifying two pairs of Costume Base Han Solo pants..
and am going to remove the entire strip from the side of the pants..remove the individual stripes...
then sew on new stripes into the strip..
and sew the pants back together.

In addition to each stripe being to high/wide...
I have found that the CB strip itself is 2" wide as opposed to the 1 1/4" wide of the pattern...I hope to take some of that excess out as well...

one thing I also found is that CB uses grosgrain ribbon..
I am thinking I might be able to find both the red and gold grosgrain in 1/4" wide and use that..

grosgrain -
here it is in blue...but it comes in a wide variety of colors...and you can see what the "ribbon" looks like close up..
click on red to see red...
and...is the ESB stripe considered yellow or gold?


http://www.amazon.com/Grosgrain-Ribbon-10-Yards-Bluebird/dp/B002R3924S


I think the "yellow gold" is a good choice?


I already did the pin tuck and riding seam on the ANH pants...
the pin tuck was fairly easy..
getting the riding seam straight...not so easy..lol...

The size of the bloodstipe is not official, and IMO can be altered to fit the size of the person. The image you downloaded was based of an image for people who used an embroidery machine, but could also be used to help trace out the image itself. If you take a look at the picture bellow... the stitch quality and alignment of each bloodstripe is not accurate, and varies going down the pants. IMO the stripes Han has were done by hand.
Just means there is room for error on the bloodstripes.

Not 100% sure on the yellow gold, but it is close:
