11294Re: Star Wars costumes
- Jun 2, 2009I posted a reply earlier this morning, and it looks like it didn't go through either! So here it is again, and apologies if it's a double-posting.
This page has some good illustrations and pattern suggestions: http://www.padawansguide.com/robe.shtml
I have used some African-type sewing patterns in the past for Jedi clothing, but I think they are long out of print.
Hope this helps!

They will also be making an independent film about their adventures. As you might guess, they want costumes that can stand up to packing, traveling and lots of wearing. Most of their requests, I'm good to go with, but I need some help with the Star Wars stuff. I don't have the luxury of much research time and while I'm a fan, I've never been into it enough to have the knowledge base I find I need for this project.

Most of what I've found on the web so far is incredibly scattered and difficult to sift through. I'm thinking Jedi robes are the best choice for what they need, but it would still be easier if I had better base info. And possibly sources for boots and props that I won't be able to make from scratch as well.
