Since there are so many of us making new costumes for RotS, and at least a few Jedi, I thought we could use this thread to post progress pics and updates and stuff in case it is helpful to others. At the moment, I?m looking at suppliers, both loca and overseas for suitable fabrics. For those of you who aren?t fabric-savvy, I can tell you what you can get from where so you can go in and ask for it, instead of being so lost. Additionally, if anyone is interested, we can go to stores as a group and even get together to sew if you like. Jedi Fabric in Adelaide - Suggestions / Recommendations Based on Obi-Wan style robes: The real thing was made with something called ?Indian Homespun?, which is a cotton fabric that has a bit of a rough look to it. It?s hard to find something similar here, and I have been looking. I still have some more fabric stores to have a look at, so this is by no means a complete listing. Pants - Medium weight cotton in light tan to white, depending on personal preference - Spotlight have lots of different ones you can use Inner Tunic The real thing was made with crinkle cotton in off white, in the same shade as the outer tunic. This is a very lightweight fabric, and you will probably want it to be soft and comfortable, as it?s right up against your skin. - You used to be able to get something perfect for it from Spotlight, but I?ve checked with them recently, and they told me that they don?t have it anymore - DK?s in Gouger street have some, but only about half a metre - I have yet to have a look at other stores - If you can get cheesecloth in off white, that would work well - If you are not concerned with the crinkle, you could use cotton voile, cotton homespun, cotton broadcloth or a lightweight linen Outer Tunic This is made from a heavier weight fabric. The colour is off-white to tan, depending on personal preference. I am searching for the perfect fabric, but haven?t found one yet. You could possibly use: - Medium to heavyweight linen (DK?s Gouger St have some that could work) Brown Robe The real thing was made from wool, but you don?t have to use it unless you want to be ultra authentic. I?m waiting on some swatches to come over from a store in the US. I?m planning on using wool flannel, because it?s not too expensive and it seems light just the right weight, not too light, and not to heavy. I?m always on the look out for this fabric locally, so if I find some here, I will report back. There are plenty of alternatives you could use though, like: - Heavyweight linen (though I don?t know of anywhere that has it in dark brown at the moment - Cotton drill - Cotton homespun I hope that?s enough to help get you started. BTW, spotlight has 100% linen in black for $10 a metre for those of you who are darksiders.
