Female Jedi Tunic by Verdaera Female Jedi Tunic by Verdaera
This is my Jedi tunic, I chose to deviate it before tabbards and obi to show the structure. I made this out of a cotton gauze and added darts in the back and front to elimate fabric bulk, which will be hidden by the tabbards. It closes with snaps. The shoulder tucks were the most interesting (read: fiddly) parts of the whole thing.

I made my own pattern, this is basically the shape I used (www.rebelshaven.com/images/cos…. There's further information for how to make things like the shoulder tucks and binding around the neck at the RebelLegion.com forums :)

The link leads to an error page. Do you have a current link for a pattern like this? My sister has some boots and belt she likes for her Jedi outfit, but hasn't been able to find a good tunic.

Mind if I use this as a reference for a Jedi character design? I'm working on a comic that I'll be putting here in my gallery as well as elsewhere, and I just like to ask first! I must say, Thank God for the Internet, DA, and Star Wars costuming groups; makes the research for designing characters easier (that and Starship Modeller for spacecraft...).

I found this googling 'Jedi Tunic' hoping to find a pattern I could use / modify to make my wife one. that looks awesome!
Don't suppose you could link me to the pattern you used could you. :)

Thanks! Actually I didn't use a pattern, I drafted this myself. You can find lots of useful instructions at RebelLegion.com, we're one of the largest Star Wars costuming groups, recognized by Lucasfilms, and you can find lots of info on making Jedi tunics there :)

Awesome sauce. Thanks. I'm trying to piece together a Nomi Sunrider costume. I think the tunic is probably going to be the hardest part.
Thanks for the tip.

Looks flawless! I love it. With my next tunic I'm going to go with this cut as well. Is that just a half circle around the bottom?

:iconverdaera:
Verdaera Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2010  Professional Artisan Crafter
Thanks! :D

It's not completely circuler as I found that didn't lay very nice, and it's rectangular for awhile where it overlaps in the front, but it does curve and have an angled side seam like an a-line skirt, as circular as I could make it without it making ruffles. It actually sticks out more than I intended because of the lining almost acting like a petticoat!

I've almost finished making my tunic, thanks for the help. When I did my mock up, I realised what you meant. Mine's kind of circular but not a lot, or else it stuck out badly.

O_O whoa...that turned out NICE!!!

How DID you do the shoulder tucks? I know its popular on geisha robes...

:iconverdaera:
Verdaera Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2009  Professional Artisan Crafter
:D Thanks!

The trick to the shoulder tucks is, the sleeve and armhole are both straight, it basically is a t-tunic (I tried to be fancy, I thought it curved like a regular armhole at the bottom but it just didn't work, simple is the way to go). Some places advise that the tuck is all sleeve but it's just not true. You add extra fabric to the pattern at the shoulder seam on the body itself. When the sleeve is attached, figure out where the edge of your shoulder is, and basically just tuck the excess fabric under (making sure the sleeve seam is under the tuck) and pin it down. You'll want to make sure everything is tucked nice and straight a few inches in each direction and pin it. Then, I went inside and did a bunch of tacking stitches, about 3 inches along the top of the shoulder kept it all tame. And since I lined it, it was all tacked to the lining so it didn't show. And if that made no sense whatsoever, I'll probably be putting up a tutorial with pictures sometime

I know its been several years since you posted this, but I would LOVE it if you posted a basic tutorial on how to make this as well as some advice on what NOT to do. It would be very helpful. If such a tutorial exists, I'd love a link. I'm not having an easy time with my browser and searching right now.

I've been thinking that next year I'd like to be a Jedi for Halloween... and maybe for a convention in the summer. I love that you submitted this on the same day that I received by Simplicity Jedi sewing pattern in the mail. The pattern isn't as female friendly as yours will be, but as a sewing newbie I needed somewhere to start. I'm looking forward to see how yours will turn out. =)
