6 posts in this topic

Hello everyone

I am already a registered Barriss Offee for the Rebel Legion. But now I am aiming for another version and I am going for the traitor Barriss in Clone Wars.

i`ll be using this platform to show you guys my progress and ideas and hope you can help me when I am lost.

I`ve been doing some homework and now have started putting up a plan.

For the moment I have following things to consider:

1. All the pictures show her in brown / dark brown (so I guess that my black and blue version is not doable). Which is why I have gotten a few brown materials to work with.

2. When looking closer and trying out, I figured that is might actually be more accurate to pleat the material meant for the bib and maybe also the rest of the top. I have a developed a few striped textiles and am now waiting for production. I am playing with the idea of a printed top and the middle part aka the bib will be pleated. 

3. As head cover I found a motorcycle mask at the local store and think I`ll be able to sew  and cut it to make more space for my face and to show the hair.

4. So what have I got? Easy: the approved belt (made of real leather and metal and was stitched by hand at the time), which fortunately looks the same in both versions and the black boots.

To do:

  • pick right textiles  (stoff.de, stoffe.de, creasphere)
  • prepare bib (pleate and sew approx 1 m2 for later use) me
  • headcover (wish, local bike store)  sewing done by me
  • brace / armpiece (material Worbla, leather, paint) cooperation with  friend
  • boots already there
  • belt already made (leather and metal, handmade)
  • skirt  probably me
  • top (bib by me and rest commissioned by local seamstress as I am absolutely bad with tops ;-)

Anything missing? Let me know!

So have been lucky and unlucky. 

Unlucky, as the printed material has arrived and so does not match anything that I`ve got. So another order and another wait of 1.5 months :-( 

And lucky... found a beautiful dark brown cotton material, which should do for the skirt. And to make things even better, I`ve also found the right sewing patterns for both skirt and top.

I have set myself a time limit... lets see if I can keep it.
