Have you had feedback on your submission? Unfortunately, it's a little tricky for us to advise at present?

In terms of the different shirt, do you have any photos of it daylight? It appears very grey in the second picture you've just posted.

This is what I got.

Your pants need a few adjustments. First, your waistband does 
not wrap around long enough. The Rebel Legion Jyn Erso 
standard specifies the waistband line up with the center seam of 
the right leg. Yours is ends closer to the center of your body. 
The waistband will need to be adjusted or remade.

Your pants casings also do not wrap around long enough, 
exposing too much strap on the backs of your legs. The casings 
should start on the side of the leg so you do not see straps 
behind your legs. If you see in this photo of the Jyn costume on 
display:

https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-

6TyNF8rsamg6gfxOjPwCLcB/s800/rogue%2Bone%2Bfilm%2Bco
stumes.jpg

you can get a sense of where the casings should end. I would 
also suggest when you are adjusting the casings, to also raise 
them higher on your leg. Although the casings should be below 
the knee, it appears like yours are closer to your calves and 
raising them about 1-2 inches to *just* below your knee I think 
would give your pants a more accurate look.

Your shirt color is great, and the sleeve length looks good. The 
only issue I see is the neckline is wrong. The collar should only 
have an outer flap and yours appears to have two layered flaps. 
If you refer to this photo:

https://pmcvariety.files.wordpress.com/ ... star-wars-
rogue-one-11.jpg?w=1000&h=563&crop=1

you can get a good look of how the bib flap lays, and how the 
right side of the garment has no flap at all, its just half a “V” 
opening, while the left side has the folded over bib. You may be 
able to alter your existing shirt to correct this simply by pressing 
the inner flap inward and topstitching the pressed edge.

Your vest looks good from the front, we especially like how you 
weathered it. We will need you to fix your back quilting, which 
is presently uneven and incorrectly spaced. I would refer to this 
photo of Jyn:

https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-fPxbeF4brcM/WOP-
9VkrZCI/AAAAAAAChPY/mIlO4ycWVRI_ODEm9K6ZOVb3a5uhVE
GfACLcB/s1600/rogue%2Bone%2Bjyn%2Berso%2Bjacket%2Bb
ack.jpg

to see where to place your stitch lines so the squares are larger 
near the bottom and narrower rectangles towards the top.

Your props and blaster look great except we will need you to 
repaint your comm pad (aside from the red parts) so it is all 
gray or all silver as per the costume standard. Refer to this 
photo here:

Your belt and holster look great! The one think we need you to 
fix is your tonfa clip is in the middle of the strap when it should 
be down by the holster. Refer to this image to get an idea of 
where it should be:.

https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-KR_2hTbkECk/WOP-

m0NrejMJQCLcB/s800/rogue%2Bone%2Bjyn%2Bfilm%2Bcostu
me.jpg

Since the tonfa clip is optional, you could either move it to a 
more accurate position, or just remove it totally. It just can’t be 
in the middle of the strap.


How can adjust a waistband that fits fine off me but not on when you didn't make them. Most bits I can deal with but not the trouser bits.

Most i can figure out it's the trousers. Also with the shirt would simply folding inner flap inside shirt and stitching it work to get this to this...?ImageImage

In regards to the shirt, yes, what you are suggesting sounds very acceptable. I would suggest that you pin it in the place that works best for you, remembering that you will need to get the top on and off over your head.

Can I ask that you also post a picture of your trousers when they are laid out flat.

That's easy enough. Vest shouldn't be too bad, comm pad on vest I can remove and repaint easy enough, same with tonfa hook. It's just the pants.

Sorry, I'm going to ask for photos in daylight, because at the moment, the waistband as I see it, only just reaches the seam line of the trouser leg, if at all. The amount of fabric that is required to lengthen it will be the issue. Particularly if you are trying to go for screen accuracy.

Of me it reaches fine on its about an inch short.

Ok with changes.

Comm pad is repainted silver and currently drying.
Tonfa hook is removed for the moment.
Shirt inner collar is folded down which should work without sowing it down for ease of putting on and off as long as I remember to do it.

I have some black satin material to make a mock up of new waistband shortly. Also looks like casing is simply stitched onto outside of pants so swapping shouldn't be too bad.

Vest I will remove all squares in the back tomorrow and start again.
