Yeah, I know, I don't have the first one done yet, but I'm very nearly done with the fabric pieces for that one, and well, I need something to work on and keep me busy while I work on collecting belt making supplies, and other odds and ends to finish up the other one. And I already have two pairs of "jedi boots", so why not two jedi costumes? Wink Not to mention costuming is just plain addictive, and I have all the renaissance gear I need right now, so another jedi sounds good to me.

So anywho, this afternoon I worked on drafting my pattern pieces for my second jedi. Tweaking things from the first one and changing other things so this one isn't a carbon copy of the other one. The body of the outer tunic and obi will be the same as my other generic, but the sleeves, tabards, and skirt will be different. The sleeves will be wider, the tabards a little longer and extending down both front and back, and the skirt will be a little bit more of a "skirt". Kind of a skirt/pants combination on this one. If I could draw worth a darn, I'd sketch it, but I can't, so for now, I have pattern pieces, and we'll eventually see how the mockup looks.



(Pattern pieces: Top: sleeves. Middle (L to R): Outer Tunic front, Outer Tunic back, Tabard bottom front, Tabard bottom back. Bottom (L to R): Outer Tunic Skirt front, Outer Tunic Skirt back, Tabard over shoulder piece)

And I already have fabric. Walked in to the fabric store a while back to pick up snaps for the first costume, and walked back out with snaps and fabric for a second jedi. Rolling Eyes

So, left to right:
Shantung - lining for sleeves and skirt (will be using the "wrong side" out instead of the shiny side out since you'll see more of the lining on this one, it's pictures "wrong side" out)
Linen - for obi and tabards
Linen - for outer tunic
And I have some various cotton broadcloth (not pictured) for lining the body of the outer tunic, tabards, and obi.
Haven't picked out undertunic fabric yet.



And since I don't show my horses anymore, I'm hoping to use a pair of my show breeches for the pants with this one. The colors should work, so we'll see how they look with the outfit once it's done. I love this pair of breeches, but have worn them a grand total of once before my show horse got injured, so I'm hoping to get some more use out of them as part of some jedi garb! Thinking about tying in the knee patch color with the undertunic.



Ribbed pattern of the breeches. And you can see the backside of the shantung really well here:



So yeah, more jedi goodness to come!

Made some progress on this one today! The body of the outer tunic is sewn together at the shoulders and the sleeves are sewn on. Shoulder tucks will be the next step, but not tonight. Kind of questioning the linen I picked for this one. It's heavy! Guess we'll see how it turns out!

Front and back pieces:


Shoulders and darts sewn together:




Sleeves and lining:


Sleeves and lining sewn on:

It looks like veras girl tunic pattern but as I said many times in your other wip it looks great!

I can't wait to see how this turns out

Yup, it's very similar to Vera's pattern! I started with the Simplicity 4450 pattern, drafted it down to fit a female figure better, but still had so much bulk in the waist. Then I found Vera's pattern with the darts, brilliant!! Added the darts and fits so much better! So it's definitely a combination of patterns. lol!

We have shoulder tucks! (Sides and sleeves not sewn together just yet.)

Since there was recently a question about shoulder tucks, for the heck of it I tried to take pictures as I was sewing the tucks in mine. I'm sure there are other methods and ideas, but basically this is the way I kind of understood it from the Simplicity 4450 pattern, and with some of my own interpretation, and so far this way has worked well for me for this jedi and the other one I'm working on.

On the dress form before the shoulder tucks (side seams are not sewn together yet, just pinned together for the picture on the dress form):
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/cope2392/Picture002-2_zpsb1b84ef2.jpg

One more, side view:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/cope2392/Picture003-2_zps8df80b08.jpg

Iron the shoulder and sleeve seam flat, pressing it toward the sleeve (the dark fabric is the lining of the sleeve, the tan/brown fabric is the lining of the body of the tunic):
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/cope2392/Picture008_zpsad76a165.jpg

Lay your tunic down wrong side up. Figure out where you want your shoulder tuck seam to be, then measure in from the edge of the shoulder/sleeve seam to just past where you want your shoulder tuck seam to be. I used 3 1/4", marked that measurement in a few different spots, then drew a line with disappearing ink:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/cope2392/Picture009_zps78ed535e.jpg

Form the tuck by bringing the edge of the shoulder/sleeve seam up to the line you just drew. Pin the seam into place along your line, but make sure you don't catch any of the sleeve material as you put the pins in. You're just tacking the seam down so it doesn't move around on you. I just pushed the pins through the seam and into the fabric underneath:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/cope2392/Picture011_zps48d6eb82.jpg

Flip your sleeve over so it's now right side up. This is why you want to make sure you don't catch the sleeve fabric with the pins you just put in. The reason you can't see the ends of the pins is because they're all inside and/or under the shoulder tuck you just formed, that way I knew I didn't catch any of the sleeve material:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/cope2392/Picture013_zps21ef2455.jpg

Pin down the sleeve along the seam that you pinned down inside, so it stays put when you pull the inside pins out:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/cope2392/Picture017_zps116aaae5.jpg

Flip the sleeve back over wrong side up, and pull out all the pins that you tacked down the sleeve with:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/cope2392/Picture019-1_zps78a21732.jpg

Pins all removed:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/cope2392/Picture022_zpsc4f03ba0.jpg

Flip the sleeve right side up again. Add a row of pins on either side of the row of pins you have in the seam. Then go through and pull out the center row of pins since this is where you'll be sewing your shoulder tuck seam:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/cope2392/Picture025_zpscbc05392.jpg

Figure out how long you want your shoulder tuck seam to be. Measure that out and mark a beginning and ending point for your shoulder tuck seam. I marked mine at 5" on each side of the center shoulder seam, and marked with disappearing ink. So my total shoulder tuck seam is 10" long:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/cope2392/Picture029_zpsf6cd0cd7.jpg

Head to the sewing machine and sew down your shoulder tuck seam. If you're fabric is really thick, make sure you have a heavy duty needle. I actually used a leather needle for mine:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/cope2392/Picture032_zps28e531a0.jpg

Seam is stitched down:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/cope2392/Picture037_zpsa84b582b.jpg

Pins pulled. Under side of the shoulder tuck:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/cope2392/Picture042-1_zpsca179afc.jpg

Top side of the shoulder tuck:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/cope2392/Picture043_zps5ccc6eca.jpg

And looking at the finished shoulder tuck seam from the inside:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/cope2392/Picture046_zps3edcf397.jpg

And on the dress form with both shoulder tucks complete:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/cope2392/Picture049_zps7741a653.jpg

A little more progress today. Sides of the outer tunic, sleeves, and sleeves lining sewn together.



Tunic skirt pieces cut out.



Tunic skirt pieces sewn together and lining sewn inside.



The tunic skirt on this one will be the same length in the front as my other tunic, but will taper down and be a little longer in the back. Hence the reason for the contrasting lining inside the skirt (and sleeves), since you'll see some of the lining at the back of the skirt against the breeches I'll be wearing with it. The breeches, obi, and tabards fabric is a tan color in between the off white of the outer tunic and the darker lining. Hopefully it will all come together as I'm picturing it in my head. lol!

Thanks Anakin!


Inside of skirt with lining hem pinned down:



Hand sewing the skirt lining to the hem of the skirt:



Was curious to see how the skirt was going to look when attached, so quickly pinned it to the tunic and stuck it on the dress form, and I like!!



With my breeches pinned underneath, again to get an idea of how things look. The fabric for my tabards and obi is very close in color to the breeches.



Handsewing the inside of the collar down:



With the collar attached:





Almost done getting the skirt sewn on, so hopefully more progress and pics this weekend!

Is it sad that I spotted the Due South dvd? That was the main reason I wanted to be an RCMP officer when I was younger Smile

Finally got the skirt attached, so the outer tunic is nearly done. Just need to shorten and hem the sleeves, and add snaps to close it.
