Jedi Undertunic, Pants + Boots

By Verdaera
The base of my Jedi costume is done and now I can start on the fun part!

The pants pattern I drafted myself... I took my Endor Leia pants pattern, and the initial Jedi pants pattern I made and merged them to eliminate problems with each, and I think I finally have the perfect pants pattern for me! I'm happy with how they turned out.

I made the pants out of a stretch cotton sateen. I chose not to do front fly stitching, flat-fell seams or a button closure so they would be more Jedi than "Earthly". The undertunic is the one I deviated earlier, made of poly jersey knit, with pintucks at the neck and armwraps. It is also a bodysuit so it stays tucked in the pants. I figure if I'm wearing the tunic and obi and my undertunic becomes untucked, it would be quite uncomfortable. The boots were a steal, they were originally $100 leather boots I got on sale for $30 at Famous Footwear. Thankfully they are so dark you can barely see the zipper, but I will probably make leather bootcovers later to up the Jedi-ness of them.

oh, wow. you're beautiful!
Great job on the pants and tunic. I know you modified and made your own patterns, are you able to show sketches of the patterns (or at least the general idea)?
Love the undertunic and pants. They look very comfortable.
