Welcome! you might want to follow Rogers jedi tutorial at for pattern, anakin and obiwans is similar, though anakins right sleeve is fitted under the glove. also you might want to take a look at sonsofthesuns.com the forum is inactive, but there is pictures of details and of fabric under the epiii costume.

roger tutorial : http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=29112

oh and allway make sure that you follow the costume standarts if you want to be approved! post pics and make a wip thread so the jugdes can see your work Smile

The tutorial should still be okay. But even though you are a female, in order to be approved as an Anakin, you still need to look like Anakin (well, within reason). I'd say the only thing you might need to do to get the costume pattern to fit you is put in a few darts here and there. But....some of our more experienced lady costumers might have better options for you.
