Jedi trews for 17" Tonner guys.



Another quickie today, just to show the Trousers I've made for the Jedi outfit.

I've used my pattern #012 for these pants (in my Etsy store) The plain version fits just nicely.

I know Obi Wan's pants are pretty loose fitting, but I like a sexy Jedi, so these are a much snugger fit.  They'll look better with the boots I have in mind too.

The fabric is actually a fine needlecord, but I've used the reverse side because it's actually quite nice.  I don't have any off-white or stone coloured denim - almost impossible to find - so this will do nicely.




That's the grunt work over. Now I get to play again, and make a pattern for the tunic.  My fabric for the robe arrived today, but I won't let myself attempt it until all the under garments are complete.

I've also found a bit of perspex rod for the light-sabre, but am wondering how the devil I'm going to make the grip section.  I'll have to shop around for some kind of light-sabre keyring or toy I guess.  It's tricksy in 1/4 scale. I have a couple of 1/6 scale light-sabres for the action figure of course, but it looks too small for these bigger male dolls.

    1. Thanks Anj. :) I quite like the slightly rustic look it gives the fabric.
