Hi everybody, I'm new here so I wasn't exactly sure where a topic like this should go...

I'm planning to make Rey's Resistance outfit but I have had a hard time trying to find a fabric with the right color, pattern and thickness for her vest. I know it's supposed to be a grey wool fabric with a herringbone pattern, but I have ordered like 20 different sample swatches from websites and I can't seem to find something appropriate.

Anybody who has recently made this costume could give some recommendations on the fabric they used? Any links, if still available?

Thanks in advance for the help! Smile

I hope you have found something by now, but replying in case it is helpful to anyone later:

For something that seems like it should be pretty easy to find (gray herringbone wool), this fabric has been surprisingly hard to source! I got mine on Etsy... while my seller does not seem to have any right now, I have noticed that it comes in and out of stock. I recommend checking Etsy frequently to see if anything new is listed. You need about 3 yards to make both vest and gauntlets. Good luck!
