    Yep, I can totally shorten both the tunic and cloak. I was just concerned about whether these might be indicative of the size being too big in general all around. I'd hate to get it done and find it was a tent on me! :) Maybe what you're saying is that these tend to just be for taller people, but fit ok once the length is adjusted?

    Hey all. Im doing a CW era Jedi costume that isnt the traditional Jedi look, and Im having some armour on it (think CW Obi wan with less armour)

    But, I have no idea how to attach the armour to what I'll be wearing (a long sleeve top)


    Any help would be appreciated, Ill put some pics up of what im designing soon

    Taeriel, that's pretty much what I'm saying. Generally the sizing on these patterns is fairly accurate- I've heard that some of Simplicity's patterns run a bit large, but that may not be true in all cases. If you're really concerned, get yourself some cheap bargain fabric and do a mock-up of the tunic using the pattern in the size you think you will need, with the adjustments made for your height. If the thing does run a bit large, you shortened it too much/not enough, or otherwise doesn't fit right, it's better to find out on dollar bin fabric than your good stuff.

    Oh, definitely a mock-up! I make mock-ups for most things; it's much more handy to figure out adjustments before the real fabric. I just figure it will save time and effort if I come closer to the right guess the first time. :) Thanks for the advice!
